Will Magnetics Remove Minerals From Water?

No. Most natural trace minerals in your water are carbonates and are required for good health. The major problem is they are bad for your plumbing. GMX products will keep all minerals in solution so they cannot build up scale in your hot water heater or plumbing.

How Will GMX Save Me Money?

The U.S. Bureau of Standards reports that just 3/8" of scale requires 55% more fuel to heat your water. By removing such scale you will save about $250.00 per year heating the same water, with more rapid recovery.

I Have A Water Softener Can GMX Benefit Me?

Absolutely! Install GMX Conditioners on the water line before the salt conditioner to improve its efficiency. This could save you 40% to 60% per year in back-flushing, in addition to the cost of salt. You will not be adding as much sodium to your water or dumping as much salt into the sewer system. Or, you can bypass your water conditioner altogether.

Do I Need To Clean Out The Pipes Where The Units Are?

No. Nothing sticks to the magnetic units or the pipes. We are using the magnetic field to rearrange the calcium molecules so that they stay in suspension rather than precipitating out.

Is There Any Maintenance?

If you live in a home where there is considerable scale build-up, we recommend that you drain your hot water heater after 30-45 days. This speeds up the descaling process. Once your system is clean there is no maintenance.

Why Is GMX The Best Product On The Market?

Quality Control. We use the best materials available and the highest grade of magnets. Our research has developed the most effective product sold today, and ALL units are checked prior to packaging to insure Zero defects in the field.

Why Use A Set Of Units On The Main Line And A Booster After The Water Heater?

There are many factors that are critical to the performance of magnetic water treatment products. One factor is the energy imparted into the water. GMX uses the most powerful ceramic magnets available. They focus their energy into the center of the pipe which is crucial for descaling. Our units are designed with pipe size in mind and also the contact time needed for each size installation. For example, a one inch line needs an initial contact time of approximately 12 inches. We recommend a single booster unit after the hot water heater because heat is the big catalyst in scale formation. The booster keeps the hot water aligned for maximum benefits. The more water flow, the faster the descaling.

What Will I Notice After My Units Are Installed?

*Your water might feel heavier, denser; silkier, more like rain water
*Increased efficiency of most cleaning products--better sudsing
*Hot Water temp. increases as the scale is dissolved at the heating elements
*Crust Rings in Toilet get soft (Easy To Clean and Won't Come Back)
*Shower Scum on walls and curtains (Easy To Clean and Won't Come Back)
*Plants thrive with magnetized water
*Chlorine and Sulfur reduced-in most cases

What Will GMX Do For Fuel?

The results are similar in that the magnets will keep varnish from forming in injectors and carburetors and will remove existing accumulations from the combustion chamber and valves. Magnetized fuel has a tendency to attract an oxygen molecule when it is mixed with air in the cylinder, This causes more of the fuel to be efficiently burned and produces more power. The result is an increase in mileage and a reduction in hydrocarbon emissions. This can be verified by a hydrocarbon test that can be conducted at any state testing center. The benefit to the car owner is better fuel economy. The additional benefit to us all is a cleaner environment in that less fuel will be burned and what is burned will be less polluting.

What Are The Effects On Water?

  • Imports a charge to the water as it passes through the magnetic field (Faraday's Law of Electricity).
  • Causes calcium to be retained in solution rather than precipitating out and plating on hot surfaces, in pipes or any surface that is contacted by the water.
  • Reduces the odor and taste of sulfur in water (in most cases).
  • Does not add anything to the water or take anything out of water.
  • Will enhance the operation of efficiency of water softeners.
  • Eliminates scale buildup.
  • Reduce the amount of chemicals needed in pools and spas.
  • WILL SAVE TIME, MONEY AND EFFORT IN MAINTAINlNG EQUIPMENT.
