    Magnetic Water Conditioner and De-scaler

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    We have been discussing RO water against distilled & tap water

    However there appears to be a system that actually works

    Its a Magnetic Water Conditioner and De-scaler
    Different models are available from single pipe to whole of house

    I was a sceptic at first but what I have read to date is mostly positive comments from former sceptics

    I am contemplating on getting one & give it a go

    Does anybody have one fitted ?

    I put a really strong magnet in a glass of tap water and I cant get any iron to come out of solution at all...Chemistry #101 taught me that mettalic ions are not magnetic...

    Meanwhile I have a few bottles of bargain snake oil to sell. Guaranteed to cure all manner of ailments and it can be used to remove scale from water too...Anyone want to buy one? ::)

    Its been discussed at length some time ago and if you do a search KK, you might be able to turn it up. Its all completely bogus and nothing but a well camouflaged scam... >:(

    Even the local hardware had one that you could add to ya washing to reduce the use of detergent... Final outcome... Just as effective to toss in a few rocks to bounce around...
