Did you know that limescale left by hard water can increase your fuel bills by up to £130 per year? Did you know that limescale shortens the life of your boiler and washing machine? Did you know that hard water increases your use of detergents, fabric softeners, shampoo, bath and shower products?

In 1998 the US Bureau of Standards published a report into the effect of limescale on energy use and the effectiveness of magnetic water conditioners on the removal and inhibition of limescale build up. This report states that just 0.9375 cm of limescale in water pipes leads to a 55% increase in energy use. To put this into context, this equates to an additional cost of £130.00 per annum for hot water and heating in a three bedroom property in the UK.

Limescale Goodbye will inhibit the build up of new scale but will also work to slowly reduce existing build up.

What it's made of

It is a Neodymium Iron Boron (NdFeB) magnetic assembly. Each half is made up of a yellow plastic shell in which a neodymium N38H grade block and a mild steel plate is fitted. The mild steel plate has the effect of focusing the magnetism downwards into whatever it is attached to. Each block has reads 3500 Gauss in the centre of the plastic shell. The neodymium block has then been coated to protect it because of its' iron content which, as we all know, rusts if exposed to wet or damp conditions. 

We have used Neodymium Iron Boron (NdFeB) because it is the strongest magnetic material available capable of lifting approximately 1000 times its own weight by magnetism alone. Furthermore NdFeB magnets are permanent which means that the magnetism is never lost providing that it is not exposed to temperatures greater than 80°c. Most NdFeB magnets start to demagnetise at this temperature and demagnetisation is total at 120°c. However, this unit has an H grade magnet which means that it operates at higher temperatures and does not start to demagnetise until 120°c. Interestingly, a NdFeB magnet loses about 2% of its’ magnetic strength in the first 20 years of being magnetised but after this it does not lose any. This does rely on the protective coating remaining intact since rust will also cause a loss of magnetic strength.

Fit it without any DIY skills

The Limescale Goodbye will fit on to pipes of up to 1 inches/30 mm in Diameter. Simply secure it to the pipe with the cable ties provided. If you move house or have work carried out on your plumbing you can cut/remove the cable tie and re-fit it using the same or a new cable ties (available for most DIY stores). Full fitting instructions are supplied with each Limescale Goodbye.

How and why it works

Recent research suggests that the magnetic field causes the atoms within the molecules to have very slightly different angles between them which makes them less 'sticky'. Attach the Limescale Goodbye around the mains water pipe, the boiler water inlet pipe, or on the hot or cold water tank inlet pipes and the magnetic fields which are generated excites the calcium and magnesium carbonates in the water flowing through the plumbing. This stops the limescale crystals from sticking on the inside of the pipe or on the heating elements in your washing machine or hot water tank. Instead, the limescale forms low density, and almost invisible, ‘snowflakes’ which flush through your pipes.

What happens once it's installed

The limescale particles which have already formed within the plumbing will be flushed straight through so the water may appear cloudy. However, the chemical composition of the water is unaltered so it remains safe to drink and bathe. You will be able to start reducing your detergent use over the first few weeks until you are using the soft water amounts recommended by the manufacturers. You will find that shampoo, bath and shower products produce more lather and, therefore, you can reduce the amount used. Over time existing build up will be reduced.

Fit in different places to get different results

  • Fit above the stopcock - cold water in the kitchen will be conditioned benefitting the washing machine (when it's attached to the mains) and the kitchen sink. There will be a reduction in the amount of detergents and fabric softeners required and a reduction in the amount of anti-limescale products needed. The benefits will extend to the cold water tank and may also be seen in the cold water in other rooms within the house.
  • Fit on the cold water tank inlet - the cold water in the bathrooms and the rest of the house will be conditioned, there will be a reduction in the amount of shampoo, bath and shower products needed, and a reduction in the anti-limescale products required.
  • Fit on the hot water tank inlet - all the hot water in the house will be conditioned. There will be a reduction in the amount of anti-limescale products required and in shampoo, detergents, bath and shower products. The life of your hot water tank will be prolonged.

Recently purchased magnets from you to try as a last resort to fix problem with my c/h boiler and hard water After 3 years of problems and spending hundreds of pounds the boiler if now working as it should.All I have done is fit the magnets to the cold water inlet and another set on the c/h return pipe. After a few weeks the system started to operate as it should.If theses simple magnets have fixed the system for good they are amazing and I would suggest every c/h system is fitted with them.

We are extremely pleased with these products. Thanks.
