All I can say, reluctantly, is that this thing actually works. I had a hard time believing it would but it sure did. We had a slow running toilet that now runs at full speed so it's certainly doing something positive. All I can do is conclude is is removing scale in the pipes. By the way I have a professional degree and a skeptical mind.
I checked the town's water report and, sure enough, Calcium (CaCO3) was at 319 mg/l! They call it "aesthetic quality of water", but I could only imagine what was happening to my hot water heating system and the boiler!
Installing a chemical salt-based softener was very unappealing, because of the price, maintenance and environment impact. My friend has one installed and I didn't like the soapy feel of the treated water.
After hearing commercials for no-salt Easy Water, I got interested. I also realized that there must be cheaper alternatives utilizing the same exact technology without expensive radio ads.
I was very skeptical, because of varying reviews whether this technology can work, even theoretically. I checked with a former physicist and a former chemist and both said that theoretically it can work. They are even aware of early experiments for industrial use, although without a lot of success.
My understanding is that this particular device creates an electromagnetic field around the water pipe. What's different from the early experiments is that it quickly changes the frequency. As a result, active Calcium ions become inactive sediment, don't attach themselves to the pipes in your house and simply wash away. So, the physical content of the water does not change (i.e. the hardness will remain the same), but the chemical properties of the water are affected, and that's the whole point.
Still skeptical, I decided to take a chance on Small Wonder and see what happens.Read more ›
It's been installed a few months and recently it seems to be less effective. It is still much better than without but not as good as a month or so ago. We are in the middle of a drought which lowers the well water level and therefore water quality. Perhaps it's just that or it may becoming less effective. I'll follow up if it persists.

This doesn't work like it says it will. We have hard water and if it did anything, it wasn't noticible. It also has quit working at all after only a year and a few months.Published 11 months ago by Amazon Customer
