6. Why do some agencies in charge of water quality insist that magnetic water treatment does not work?

Because they tend to consider & test the chemistry of water - which is not changed by the physical treatment.

The main reason for the discrepancy between the facts I have reported and the claims of those agencies is a matter of nomenclature.

In a number of countries, agencies exist that claim to be concerned about "water quality." They consider water to be H2O molecules containing other substances. They determine water quality by a level of measurable contamination by unwanted chemicals. So, when these agencies test magnetic treatment, they try to determine the effect of treatment by analyzing the water chemically before and after the treatment.

Naturally, they cannot find any difference, because magnetic treatment does not change the amount of chemicals in the water.

These agencies are not concerned about the crystalline status of the chemicals within the water, because traditional chemical analysis starts by dissolving all solids. Therefore, they undo the effects of the physical treatment before their investigations. They are correct in their statement that a change in hardness cannot be found in magnetic treatment, but they are incorrect in their validation of magnetic treatment.

The "hardness" of water is defined by the amount of minerals it contains this hardness is not changed by the magnetic treatment.

Consequently, it is most important to clearly delineate the intent and the expected effects of magnetic treatment. False or misunderstood claims are the main reason or the negative statements by agencies concerned about water quality.

7. Is there a quick and easy way to directly measure the effectiveness of magnetic water treatment?

No, exact measurements are time-consuming and costly.

Unfortunately for testing purposes, the development of hard lime scale is a slow process, usually requiring many weeks to become obvious and years more to become a serious problem.

For example, the water supply line of my three bedroom house built in 1962 in Claremont, California, was opened in February 1982 in order to install a magnetic water treatment unit. A part of the 20 year old supply line is shown on the left in Figure 7.

In 1992. the supply line was opened again. Part of the same (then) 30-year-old supply line is shown on the right in Figure 7.

Ten years of magnetically treated water moving through the line cleaned it out and kept it clean, without any residues.

An experienced plumber had to see this pipe, because he did not believe that a 30 year old water supply line with its outside heavily corroded could be without any internal sediments.

An effective magnetic water treatment device may show its own effectiveness alter one month of use by the difference in sediments at its inlet and outlet (Figures 8a and 8b).

Testing Protocol

An effective treatment device may reduce the amount of hard sediment by half or more. It transforms part of the lime content into loose particles, which flow with the water.

In order to evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment, one has to compare the amount of lime in the form of' loose powder with the lime deposited on the container walls. (A layer of loose powder resting on a place of' flow can be mistaken for hard sedimentation. This may lead to an erroneous analysis.)

This obviously presents technical problems. It also takes a long time to produce enough lime for accurate weighing and analysis.

Another method of' testing uses miniature units of heaters or heat exchangers which can be weighed precisely enough after a few days of operation. (This process is routinely followed by the Steinbeis Institute in Reuttingen, Germany.)

One method of' quantitative testing uses the visible turbidity produced in the treated water by the produced seeded crystals. Their platelet shape reflects the light, and this produces a slight, but measurable diffusion of that light. (Attempted by Professor Dr. Frahne in Germany.)

The fracturing of "a number of super-molecules of the untreated water decreases the surface tension. Measurements of the change of surface tension with the necessary accuracy are not simple. The changes effected by the magnetic treatment are minute.

Any measurement requires a long time (several weeks) of water running in separate fines for the comparisons. Capable teams of scientists have to make measurements consistently over this time. Few laboratories are equipped to provide such amounts of streaming water and the necessary manpower.

In conclusion, exact measurements of, the treatment effectiveness are difficult and costly.
