3rd Party Salt Free Water Treatment Studies
Water Quality Association Consumer Alert
WQA determined no performance test standard for Physical Treatment Devices exists in the US for “Salt Free” devices. Some scale control devices may partially reduce scaling, but none of these products have been tested to any U.S. national testing standard or certification. None of these products produce soft water.
Purdue Magnetic Water Treatment Devices Study
Purdue University tested 6 unidentified magnetic water conditioning devices and compared them to untreated water. Testing lasted for 240 days. No beneficial effect was seen for the magnetic treatment devices.
South Dakota Magnetic Water Conditioner Devices Study
South Dakota School of Mines & Technology tested two different classes of magnetic water treatment devices. Measurements included boiling point depression, surface tension, water conductivity and “scaling Rate”. No difference seen between raw water and the water treated by magnets.
Demonstration and Evaluation of Magnetic Descalers
U.S. Army Corp of Engineers tested two magnetic and one electronic device in 2000. The findings do not support the claims of the manufacturers regarding the ability of their respective devices to prevent mineral scale formation.
Magnetic Water Treatment Devices - Penn State Study
Penn State University states there is virtually no valid scientific data to support any water treatment benefit from magnetic devices. Although companies use testimonials from “hundreds of satisfied customers” to support their claims, the claims put forth by manufacturers and sales representatives of this devices are without validity.
