3rd Party Salt Free Water Treatment Studies

 Title: WQA Magnetics Task Force 

Army Corp of Engineers tested two magnetic (Descal-A-Matic and Aqua Magnetic) and one electronic device (Ener Tec) in 2001. The findings do not support the claims of the manufacturers regarding the ability of their respective devices prevent mineral scale formation in hot potable water systems.

Title: Demonstration and Evaluation of Magnetic Descalers  

WQA determined no performance test standard for Physical Treatment Devices exists in the US for “Salt Free” devices

Title: WQA Consumer Alert 

Penn State University states there is virtually no valid scientific data to support any water treatment benefit from magnetic devices. Companies use testimonials from “hundreds of satisfied customers” to support their claims.

Title: Magnetic Water Treatment Devices 

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.

Title: Quantitative Assessment of the Effectiveness of Permanent Magnetic Water Conditioner Devices
