Here are some of the more frequently asked questions (and answers) about Superior Water Conditioners.
Our standard equipment will treat water effectively under the following parameters:
It depends on the application and water quality. For domestic potable water use in a residential application, if there is iron present, there will be a need for an iron filter, as the Superior Water Conditioner® will not remove iron or anything else from the water, for that matter. In a commercial or industrial setting, for use on a boiler, cooling tower, food service equipment, etc. for the control of mineral scale deposition, a Superior Water Conditioner® can be used in place of (and will most likely out-perform) a water softener.
No. A water softener exchanges 2 ions of sodium for every 1 ion of calcium and magnesium, hence the process commonly referred to as ion-exchange water softening. The Superior Water Conditioner® does not add or remove anything from water, thus water purity is not affected. However, it offers a physical treatment process, which, of course, is very cost effective, safe for human consumption, non-polluting, and water and energy conserving.
The Superior Water Conditioner® physically alters the molecular structure of positively and negatively charged ions of dissolved calcium and magnesium (water hardness) with the influence of multiple, reversing polarity permanent magnetic fields. This causes the dissolved minerals to respond like similarly charged particles and repel one another vs. their natural tendency to be attracted and bond tightly together, thus forming lime / scale (calcite) when heat change (delta T), pressure change (delta P), friction and turbulence take place within plumbing systems and water-using vessels.
