Hard water is characterized by the presence of Calcium (CaCO3). The Ca portion of calcium carries a positive charge (+). The CO portion carries a negative charge (-). The calcium is predominately negative since the negative portion is three times that of the positive. Water (HO) has predominately a negative potential in character. Thus, the calcium, also a negative potential, is repelled by the HO molecules and cannot dissolve properly in the water. This then results in the calcium's fall-out, coating the water pipes' insides, the inside of the water heater, and its heating coils, and also is evident in deposits around faucets, etc.
The saltwater softening technique introduces sodium chloride (salt). This has a chemical formula of NaC1.
The Na is positive (+), and it interchanges with the negative portion of the Calcium (CO) forms sodium carbonate. The calcium now becomes calcium chloride (CaC1) and falls as residue into the storage tanks of the water softener. The system needs- constant regeneration at a cost of over $200 per year, depending on the unit size. It also, of course, introduces sodium into the water supply, a dangerous additive in the case of hypertension sufferers.
SOFT WATER EFFECT WITH MAGNETIZER® - THE BEST WATER SOFTENER YOUR MONEY CAN BUY
The Magnetizer® Water Softener System “RWE-S” employs like poles of monopolar magnetic charge. The poles are south or (+) positive. The magnets are attached to the cold water intake and the hot water pipe emerging from the hot water tank in a simple procedure taking just a few minutes.
Since water (HO) has a negative potential (-), its random configuration is changed to an organized form as it passes between the poles. The negative Calcium is now attracted to the water molecules (now in a positive form) to maintain the calcium in a colloidal suspension (a super-microscopic solution) in which the calcium does not drop out or place scale on the pipes or hot water heater. Instead, the beneficial effect of the calcium stays in our drinking water.
In addition to preventing further scale build-up, the magnetized water will gradually dissolve all of the scales already built up in the water system. The effect of the above procedure is to reduce the surface tension of the water, providing "soft water” … NATURALLY!
