    We have just installed a jacuzzi tub with air blower. Our water, here in the Sacramento, CA Valley is hard and leaves lots of scaling deposits every where.

    Has any one had experience with magnetic wave water conditioners? I read that the magnetic field will do something to the water molecules so that the deposits would disappear or be much less.

    Want to lessen the deposits in the new tub and new tankless water heater if possible.

    Your tankless water heater will last much longer and work better if you soften the water. Just like the bottom of your teapot, your tankless will lime up, decreasing flow and efficiency.

    Thank you for the responses, Suspicions confirmed---magnetics don't cost anything to operate so I guess you could not expect them to do anything. Always want something for nothing and I guess this is one of those situations where if it sounds too good to bre true it probably is.

    Will look at the CLACK and other options.
