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.

    Lime scale breaker

    As they say the proof will be in the pudding. Very easy to fit but have doubts as to whether it does keep lime scale at bay.

    Really pleased

    This item arrived this morning and it was easy to fit myself. When I recently purchased a new washing machine I also bought a similar descaler of equal quality but slightly more expensive. It came with 2 'cardboard ' type washers and as we have very high water pressure it leaked badly so had to return it. This one came with 2 substantial rubber washers. There was no instructions whether to use both in the water supply end or one each end. As there was quite a long thread, I used both together and the result was perfect, no leaks at first attempt. Just the job, would recommend. I shall be interested to see if I need less washing powder as suggested in many forums because of the water softening effect.

    Under review - but promising!

    I am still in the process of determining whether this unit works, for my water supply. It cannot entirely 'soften' the water but the washing has been far less 'crispy' without the use of softening tablets. Any improvement at the cost of the unit has to be good!

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 ;) By Kristjan - Finland - 01 January 2018

    We would not recommend use with a shower, as it is only listed for washing machines and tumble dryers.

Answer this question

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.

    It prevents limescale forming but may not fully soften the water.
