Neocal Anti-Limescale Device
Looking to eliminate limescale build-up at its source? The Neocal Anti-Limescale Device attaches to the fill hose of your washing machine or dishwasher to stop limescale from forming. Reduces the need for chemical descalers, makes your appliance more efficient and prolongs its life span. This device provides a softer touch for your laundry, and a brilliant clean for your crockery.
The Neocal Anti-Limescale Device contains permanent neodymium magnets which create a powerful magnetic field. This breaks calcium carbonate crystals down into aragonite, which is then easily dispersed in the discharged water. Ecologically friendly.
- 5-year life span.
How to fit the limescale device:
Screw the device directly onto the tap and attach the fill hose of the appliance, ensuring a clean connection in accordance with the manufacturer's guidelines. Do not force the device onto the water connection, to avoid any leakage.
8 Questions and 9 Answers
The scientific consensus is that magnets have no measurable effect on water. I really, really wish this was not the case, but nobody has proved it works. It's not a conspiracy by the makers of anti-scale techniques which do work. Please, someone, prove me wrong, I beg you!!!
- I don't know about "scientific consesus". There are several studies that have support the theory, that there is a change in the aragonite/calcite ratio when water passes through a static magnetic field. Calcite is the stuff that sticks to surfaces, aragonite, not so much. I'd rather say "inconsesus" :) Journal of Water Process Engineering Volume 9, February 2016: "In the pilot network, magnetic field decreased calcium scaling by 15% in the both studied piping materials..." Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials Volume 209, Issues 1–3, February 2000: "Carbonates formed by heating water containing ≈120 mg(Ca)/l are characterized by X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy. Tests on 32 pairs of samples establish, at the 99.9% probability level, that drawing water through a static magnetic field (B≈0.1T, ∇B≈10 T/m) increases the aragonite/calcite ratio in the deposit..." Just my two cents, tho don't believe everything you read ;)

can this be fitted to a shower? 1 Answer
Parminder at eSpares says...
We would not recommend use with a shower, as it is only listed for washing machines and tumble dryers.
Reason, we have hardish water and there is a setting on the tumble dryer which has to be set at low, med, high. Would this need to be changed.
Chris at eSpares says...
It prevents limescale forming but may not fully soften the water.
- yes I would advise it

Hi margaret, this product is recommended for use on individual appliances rather than the mains supply.
