Non-chemical conditioning of water for scale control has been carried out for many years. It has been established that there are a number of ways in which this can be carried out with the most common being magnetic, electro-magnetic, electronic and electrolytic. With these technologies comes a wealth of jargon and explanations using words such as electrochemical, electrostatic and bi-polar etc.
All Physical Water Conditioners endeavour to create the same non-chemical effect for control of the scale. They generate a seed / nucleation point that attracts the elements that produce scale and holds them in suspension. This prevents the hardness minerals from forming on the internal surface areasof the water system, and are instead allowed to flow through the water system and out to drain.
