In large industrial installations, like cooling towers, this process is evident as large chunks of old lime scale break off the walls. The treated water does not dissolve the old scale only from the outer surface: it penetrates between the scale and the wall. This area is the weakest part of the scale, so the water can
split the crystalline matter from the container wall. The dramatic speed of this process made some precautions necessary. In order to avoid clogs, filters and strainers should be temporarily taken out of the circulation system.
Clamp-on magnetic units typically have an efficiency rating off 20 to 40 percent although they are capable of removing old lime scale, this may take several weeks. But because they also prevent the formation of new scale, the units are always producing some benefit.
Corrosion prevention is another benefit of magnetic water treatment. Periodic acid washing of a pool is one of the reasons for the metal corrosion. In some cases, after long periods between acid washings, the hard deposits may cover up some weak spots, which turn into leaks when the deposits are dissolved by the next acid wash. Because magnetic water treatment makes acid washes unnecessary, a major cause of corrosive damage is eliminated.
Also after a long period of magnetic water treatment, the interior of pipes becomes covered with a thin continuous coating. This layer does not change over the years. Analyzed by a number of scientific institutes, it has been determined to be a corrosion preventing inert substance. In one case, it was found to be aluminum silicate.
The Steinbeis Institute in Reutlingen, Germany, has devoted years of research to the study of corrosion and has published numerous articles outlining the corrosion reduction experienced with water systems treated with magnetic devices.
Carbon Cycle and the Earth's Climate - Columbia University
According to NASA, of all the sunlight that reaches earth, only about 48 percent of it hits the surface and only a portion of that is captured through photosynthesis. The rest is reflected back by earth’s atmosphere or absorbed by the atmosphere.
Photosynthesis is the first stage of energy flow through an ecosystem. You and all other animals on earth rely on the energy that plants store for life. But animals aren’t the only organisms that burn energy. Plants burn energy as they grow, too. In both plants and animals, the process of — which releases stored energy for use — occurs in the mitochondria inside each cell.

Environmental scientists recognize that the fundamental source of energy for most life on earth is the sun. Through photosynthesis, plants capture the light and convert it into chemical potential energy. Plants then store the potential energy in the form of (biological matter that fuels nearly every animal on earth).
Water Safety: Distilled Water vs. Reverse Osmosis
Magnetic water (MW) is water that has been passed through a magnetic field. Magnetic water treatment devices (MTDs) or magnetic water softeners are environmentally friendly, with low installation costs and no energy requirements. MW can be used to increase crop yield, induce seed germination and benefit the health of livestock. MW treatment is currently used in Australia, Bulgaria, China, England, Japan, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Turkey and the United States for these purposes (Qados and Hozyan, 2010 and Hozayn and Qados, 2010). It is believed that magnetized water used for irrigation can improve water productivity (Duarte Diaz et al., 1997), thus conserving water supplies for the expected future global water scarcity. MW has also been found to be effective at preventing and removing scale deposits in pipes and water containing structures. Magnetized water also can increase the levels of CO2 and H+ in soils comparable to the addition of fertilizers. Cleaning agents have an increased effectiveness when combined with the power of MW, and the amount of cleaner used can be reduced by one-third to one-fourth (Kronenberg, 1993).

Globally millions of people drink MW as a “healing’ prophylaxis, despite little evidence to support or debunk the benefits of MW on health. In China the use of magnetic materials is a traditional remedy and is becoming more popular in modern medical science. Drinking MW has been reported to improve bladder problems, stroke recovery, arthritis pain and reduce blood pressure. But no systematic clinical trials have been completed to support or disprove these effects (Grusche et al., 1997). Thought to improve the bodily environment through the introduction of a magnetic field, it is believed that MW can strengthen the immune system, antioxidant activity and decrease blood viscosity, cholesterol and triglycerides (Dayong et al, 1999). Decreasing blood viscosity can keep blood flow rates at normal levels, preventing fats and plaque from accumulating on vessel walls and cell membranes.

Magnetic water treatment directly influences the carbonate equilibrium in water, leading to the formation of calcium carbonate (CaCO3) particles in solution that then cannot precipitate on pipe walls and other equipment. Particles are carried downstream in pipe flow and are later removed with filtration. Patented in 1945 (Vermeiren) MW can be used to prevent and remove scale and is currently common global use of MW. Mineralized coatings inside pipes and water containers have been found to reduce with the use of a magnetized water system (Lin and Yotvat, 1990) like the Magnation Scale Reduction System. Barrett and Parsons (1998) attribute scale reduction to the effect of MW on CaCO3 particles by suppressing nucleation and accelerating crystal growth. The mechanics of how magnetic treatment interacts with calcium carbonate in solution is still unknown, and further investigation must be completed.
