Aqua Conditioners Technology

The Aqua Conditioners technology is unique because it:

  • Prevents scale & also breaks down existing scale – without salts, chemicals or electricity
  • Provides an endless supply of ‘softened’ water without further cost or maintenance

What is a Aqua Conditioner system?

According to some very narrow definitions a ‘water-softener’ changes hard water into soft water only with the removal of calcium from the water with sodium carbonate. This means the Aqua Conditioners unit is not technically a water softener as it does not add chemicals or remove any minerals from the water flow. However, it does turn ‘hard water‘ into ‘soft water’ as characteristics of the calcium molecules changes so that it does not drop out and cling to other surfaces. The Aqua Conditioners device prevents scale from forming by neutralizing the scale producing properties of the minerals in hard water. This means the neutralized mineral particles will flow freely through the system without sticking to the surfaces.

What does the Aqua Conditioners technology do?

The technology is designed to protect plumbing systems and other surfaces from the negative effects of hard water minerals. The scale and residue that usually sticks to pipes, valves and other surfaces is prevented from forming by changing the hard minerals in the water into inactive microscopic particles. These inactive mineral particles stay suspended in the water (much like minerals are suspended in milk) and flow freely, unable to stick to surfaces.

Most importantly, unlike hard water minerals, if the inactive mineral particles occasionally drop out of suspension they can easily be washed or wiped away without the use of caustic chemicals.

How does a Aqua Conditioners work?

The unit is installed directly in your water line. It has at its core a non-sacrificial, catalytic converter that is non-ferrous, resists rusting and corrosion, and is totally non-toxic and ecologically safe. The unit requires no salt, no resins, no electricity, no magnets, no back washing and no maintenance.

Using a unique combination of metals within the alloy core plus the principle of turbulence (the Venturi effect), the water flow is forced through the Aqua Conditioners unit where an electro-chemical catalytic reaction occurs. During this reaction, electrons are transferred between molecules, completing missing electrons and so new mineral compounds are formed. The electro-physical changes in the minerals neutralize their scale producing properties.

The result is that previously ‘hard’ minerals are changed from being large molecules into inactive, microscopic mineral particles.

The Chemistry

  • Blended in a specialised foundry process, each alloy core is made up of a number of dissimilar metals scientifically selected from the anode and cathode galvanic scale. The alloy is not a sacrificial anode (ie;does not need replacement).
  • On contact with water thousands of intense galvanic electrochemical reactions occur along the length of the alloy core.
  • Minerals are attracted to these galvanic sites as they flow through the system.
  • The electrical charge or zeta potential of the minerals in the water is reduced allowing the minerals to aggregate and form nano sized colloids which remain in suspension rather than precipitate on pipes and associated equipment.
  • Zeta potential is considered to be the electric potential of the minerals in water.
  • Aqua Conditioners lowers the Zeta potential of water by a factor of almost 2.


The Physics

  • Each alloy core has been designed and engineered for a specific flow range.
  • Each core has offset discs so that there is no direct route for the water to travel. There is a definite water alloy contact.
  • Water velocity is increased as water is squeezed through the disc apertures and on through the chambers along the length of the core.
  • High and low pressure areas are developed either side of each disc.
  • Extreme turbulence is generated in each chamber along the length of the core.
  • The increase in water velocity and turbulence combine and create a mechanical washing action which prevents minerals building up on the core.
