Magnetic Water Conditioner to reduce GH. Anyone used it?

Hi all,



I have high GH at home of about 14. I usually use resin to lower GH and recharge it after 50-60 litres with a saltwater solution. I found out this product on ebay and it has good reviews. Do you think that it would do the job in lowering the GH?

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.


Thank you

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.

It still might help, I don't know; making the water more "flowing" (for lack of better term) might make the working of the RO unit easier? Someone like Mikaila might know more about this.
