Hydropath (chemical-free, salt-free)

  • 30,000 times more efficient than other physical water conditioners
  • Propagates the signal along the entire water system
  • Works independent of flow
  • Gives constant, 24-hour protection

Magnetic (chemical-free, salt-free)

  • Very weak signal
  • Magnetic fields only affect the ions when the water is moving
  • The fields are local, so the water is only treated at a single point
  • The effect starts to decay as soon the water passes the unit
  • Magnetic particles can build up, reducing effectiveness and causing blockages

Double Coil (chemical-free, salt-free)

  • Very weak signal
  • High level of interference with other systems

Electrolytic (chemical-free, salt-free)

  • Very weak signal
  • Metal ions are released into the water
  • The fields are local, so the water is only treated at a single point
  • The effect starts to decay as soon the water passes the unit, causing a problem when there is intermittent flow
  • In many devices, the copper pipe itself functions as one of the electrodes, causing the pipe to corrode over time

Softeners and Ion Exchangers

  • Removes essential calcium ions from the water
  • Introduces unhealthy sodium and hydroxyl ions into the water
  • Gives water a “slimy” feel
  • Water becomes more corrosive
  • Environmental pollution
  • Costly maintenance

Chemicals (anti-scalants, flocculants and coagulants)

  • Severe environmental pollution
  • Extremely costly
  • Need for complex storage and safety procedures
