MAGNETIZER® is far more beneficial than the traditional methods of softening water as they are chemical based, salt or power using, whereas MAGNETIZER® is an ecologically sustainable, monopolar, natural, healthy and organic method of softening water. Comparative differences between the traditional chemical, ionic exchange/salt based and RO water softening methods vs. the Magnetizer’s ecologically sustainable, natural, magnetic, mono-polar way are presented in the table below.
|Chemical||Ion Exchange||Reverse Osmosis or Ultrafiltrations||The Magnetizer Technology|
|Chemical additives are used to control pH, thermal capacity, corrosion, etc. They are expensive||Salt based water softeners utilize the ionic exchange of the Sodium in salt (NaCl) for the Calcium (CaCO3), or other mineral, in the water (NaCl + CaCO3 = CaCl + NaCO3).||Involves forcing untreated water through a membrane that selectively filters certain constituents out off the fluid.||Nothing is added to the fluid - it works by rearranging the molecules already present in the fluid and additives are unnecessary.|
|System requires constant monitoring & maintenance to assure proper conditioning.||While soft water is produced, a considerable expense is incurred (price of softener, salt supplies, replacement of the ionized bed, the softener's average life of 7 years, health risks).||The system requires very high pressure because the membrane used as the filter medium is essentially non-porous.||No power required - permanent magnets supply "free" effective energy. No power supplies to burn out.|
|Chemicals may be hazardous to employees or environment whenever processes fluids are flushed /spilled.||Sodium must be added to the water in place of the mineral that is removed ("salt-ion exchange").|
The mineral deposits slowly damage the system.
|In areas that have high mineral or salt content, the membranes must be flushed frequently (and replaced often).||No continuing maintenance required after the installation and no recharging or further attention is needed following the initial techniques and/or the Stabilization Period.|
|May incur unwanted pressure drop increasing energy requirements.||The sodium released into the softened water is corrosive (the corrosion due to scale has been replaced with corrosion due to sodium - an undesirable trade-off).|
Health & environmental hazard due to hypertensive effect of sodium on human body (the delicate electrolytic balance of sodium/potassium ions is unsettled) and danger of sodium toxification to the area ground water (in increasing areas the communities, doctors, hospitals and rest homes prohibit salt-ion exchange systems).
|This always requires downtime and a major usage (loss) of water. R/O units typically waste half of the processed water.||A "snap-on" design, unlike the other solutions that are "inline" and become part of the system is removable (and portable) allowing risk free testing & installation.|
