Product Description

Compare with the China-made competitors at the same price. These are solid US steel made in USA. Theirs are plastic polymer encased. These magnets are not hidden by plastic so you can see how much larger our magnets are. And that is important because the size and grade of the magnet is what makes it work. This is the best-selling 8 model magnetic water softener line in the world. Endorsed by plumbers and handymen. Our Standard basic model--a best seller--great for smaller homes, mobile homes, apartments. Completely portable. 10 Year Warranty. Solid steel--not an ounce of plastic. USA made. 360 degree surround magnetic field technology, 2 neodymium magnets embedded that install in minutes without tools by anyone and without plumbing modifications. Direct from the factory pricing saves you money. No stronger unit anywhere for the price. This is cutting edge technology in ecologically-friendly water conditioning and hundreds of thousands of units have been sold worldwide. Magnetic fields change the molecular structure of particles that cause hard water so they don't adhere to the pipes and water heaters making them more efficient. Can be used in conjunction with a salt-based system. Uses no electricity--powered by nature. 7 other sizes available for any situation, from light to extreme. Fits any size pipe, any material from copper, iron, ABS, PVC. Complete kit includes everything. Requires no servicing or maintenance ever. Manufacturer is a world leader in hydro-magnetic technology. Just 3-1/2" in length, galvanized base, and triple coated with rubberized topcoat to resist weather. Installs indoors or outdoors. These are not toy magnets--they are space-age neodymium high-grade and are extremely powerful. A hundred times more powerful than ceramic magnets. Check out all the others, as this is the absolute best value and the most power for the money. This size unit will handle most small household situations and apartments, mobile homes but not larger homes.

By Leslie B. Edmonds on July 1, 2014
Needed to put this information out here to counteract some of the misinformation being thrown about in other reviews like Mark's here.

I would direct you to the following publication from the US Department of Energy study into the efficacy and savings using magnetic and electromagnetic/electrostatic non-chemical water softening for scale control (in boilers, etc.):

http://www.magnet4less.com/pdf/Federal%20%20Technology%20Report.pdf

The technology starts on page 5 (of the publication not the .pdf file), and then skip to page 17 where the Federal sites are listed where they are installed like GSA, NASA, Coast Guard, Air Force Bases, US Army Corps of Engineers, etc., and Non-Federal sites like Chrysler, Ford, GE, GM, many large steel manufacturing plants, etc..

Yes, the calcium and magnesium ions are not removed (EC/TDS meters will still read them), but the magnetic redirection of the polarity of the suspended ions causes them to combine more readily at low temperatures with suspended nitrates and sulfates. For example the magnetic field causes calcium ions to precipitate out as Aragonite (non-sticky, smaller grained, softer-scale deposits), rather than Calcite (an adherent mineral that readily forms a tough scale, especially on heating elements).

Caveats: don't install them near high power lines or other strong magnetic fields, make sure there is no electrical current flowing through the pipe (used as a ground), iron in the water decreases effectiveness, as does silica, too slow a flow rate (below 7 ft/sec), or too small a size for your application. I have not bought one yet, but I'm researching (obviously) and the relative cost, salt use and the 25 gallons/day of waste water for backflushing the chemical water softeners can't be justified in a drought plagued place like San Diego. I'm already building a solar still to reclaim the back flush from the Reverse Osmosis system for the drinking/cooking/hydroponics use.

the instructions say it will take a while to know whether or not it's working as it has to clean out the build up.

it has been aout a month and i feel it is working, the darkness doesn't build up on my sink now that i can tell, and my skin is softer. i had started applying apple cider vinegar and water after my shower prior to getting the magnets and that helped some but even when i don't do that now, i am feeling much better, my skin is softer. the instructions have warnings about the power of the magnets might pinch fingers if not handled right . but i got the small set and they are not strong enough to harm fingers. but do seem to work well. the only other option i found was a $2,000.00. electronic model without the use of salt as well. i'm glad i got these.

It is hard to give "I love it" when I just do not know. Since the product does not reduce the hardness, a measurable item, it is hard to say if it works. This is now May 2015. From what I can determine on our 8 electric water heaters the problem, of what I suspect is lime and calcium, does not seem to have diminished I will say this, these are the strongest magnets I have come across in my lifetime! I have enough confidence that I have bought a total of 8, one for each water heater at the camp. I also found them difficult to mount. They kept wanting to stick to each other. Keep your fingers out of the way or you will learn some new four letter words. Better yet, get someone else to install them! If you have any questions I do not care if you contact me jimpcc@juno.com. I will do my best to answer you.

I have hard well water (Wisconsin) and originally bought a Pur water filter pitcher. After two weeks of use, the water wouldn't flow through the filter. I had this magnetic softener installed and now get great drinking water for about two months from one filter and cleaner clothes and dishes all the time. It even removed yellow deposits on the clothes and dishes that had accumulated on my clothes and dishes after adding LemiShine one and then letting them soak a few hours. No longer have to do this as that yellow deposit no longer happens.

I have well water with very high calcium. It has been about a month since i installed the magnets. These magnets make no promise about changing the mineral content or taste. Their function is to put the minerals in finer suspension to prevent clogging and scale. Based on my experience so far i think i am getting fewer deposits in my water. I was getting chunks of calcium from my on demand water heater. I think there are fewer chunks. I will keep you posted. If the water changes more i will up my rating

Not sure if these things work but they are still installed on my copper plumbing next to my tankless water heater. I decided to buy some super neodymium magnets out on the Internet instead for some other piping. Get the best one N51 or whatever.

Good business idea though, wish I had thought of it and the good hting about those red plates is that they prevent the magnets from crashing into each other and chipping. That happens a lot with neodymium magnets, take it from someone who has experience. Also, don't let your kids eat these magnets, else they will be a pain in the butt to take out. LOL.

Very strong! Make sure when spoting the magnet in its place,,, otherwise if you keep attaching and detaching the magnet would pop off its place from the red metal base! Than you would have a problem losing the direction of the magnet poles.
