Magnetic Water Conditioner to reduce GH. Anyone used it?
This is a discussion on Magnetic Water Conditioner to reduce GH. Anyone used it? within the Beginner Freshwater Aquarium forums, part of the Freshwater Fish and Aquariums category; -->
I have high GH at home of about 14. I usually use resin to lower GH and recharge it after 50-60 litres ...
Or else is there another solution apart from RO? By the way I have RO but with 10 litre wasted water I only get 1 litre and I read that it could be a hard water issue so maybe I could lower the GH in order to get more RO water.
As I read the material, this does not soften water by removing minerals. It works to prevent clusters which cause hard water buildups in pipes, etc. So the end water is still as hard. The GH does not lower.
As to whether this would make the RO unit or softener unit more efficient, I can't say. RO removes all minerals from the water, to soften it. Softeners use other minerals, salts, to do this, which is not the same as RO (pure) water.
