About Us

Just like plaque can clog the arteries of a heart, scale and corrosion can do the same to your water lines. Until recently, chemical-based water conditioners have been the golden standard. But in the ultra-health-conscious 21st century, more and more people are choosing to go the non-chemical route with superior, magnetic water conditions. OASHS offers the lime-busting benefits that you appreciate without the chemicals that you don’t with our own line of such water conditioners.

We utilize anti-scale magnetic treatment (otherwise known as AMT) to reduce the effects of hard water on your home or office’s water lines. Those who have benefited from this method of water softening sing its praises as both highly functional and quite affordable.

What are the Reasons to Upgrade to a Magnetic Water Conditioner?

Believe it or not, there is some controversy surrounding a certain type of water conditioner: magnetic water conditioners. This type of water conditioner is referred to as “magnetic” or “chemical-free” and functions by altering the ions in calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate – the two minerals responsible for lime/scale buildup in water lines. Under normal circumstances, these minerals bond together to create calcite, the type of buildup that can make it difficult to keep your water hot or cold.

A magnetic water conditioner alters the ionic charge so that the minerals do not bond together to form calcite. There are many critics of this method of scale protection, but this is largely due to the fact that people are so often averse to changing the way they think about caring for their water lines.

In this article, we’ll explain the numerous benefits of upgrading to a magnetic water conditioner.

You Save Money

Magnetic water conditioners are incredibly inexpensive and can save you heaps of cash. Consider all of the expenses associated with chemical water softening, like the maintenance of the conditioning components and the acidizing of plumbing equipment. These issues require repairs and even replacements, which really add up over time in some circumstances. You are not on the hook for these types of expenses when you choose to utilize a chemical-free, magnetic water conditioner.

Say Goodbye to Chemicals

In the health-conscious 21st century, people are trying to cut down on their use of potentially harmful chemicals in their day-to-day lives. This means taking a different approach to how they treat their water. Nobody wants to deal with lime build-up in their water lines, compromising the integrity of their plumbing systems, but something needs to be done to prevent it. Without the use of chemical interference, magnetic water conditioners prevent this build-up so that your plumbing stays in great shape.

Is There a Downside to Magnetic Water Conditioners?

The only perceived downside of using magnetic water conditioning technology is the fact that these conditioners are not – as of yet – widely available through retailers. They still aren’t difficult to obtain, however, as you can recruit the help of online services and specialized companies who have gotten on board with this technology. As more people come to understand why they should make this investment into their plumbing systems, you can expect that they will soon become easier and more accessible to purchase.

Here’s What You Need to Know About Superior Water Conditioners

Traditional water conditioners make use of chemicals that work against the effects of hard water build-up in a home or office’s water lines. For years, individuals have utilized this convenient and effective way to soften their water and keep their plumbing systems healthy. What would you say if we told you there was another way? Magnetic water conditioners are becoming more widely-used as a means of softening water without the chemicals that many people don’t want to use if they don’t have to.

Why Do I Need a Water Conditioner in the First Place?

Dissolved minerals can get into a home or office’s water lines, which leads to build-up that’s commonly referred to as “lime” or “scale.” Calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate are the two most commonplace minerals to make their way into water. This occurs as a result of the numerous conditions that water experiences during its passage through pipes:

  • Temperature changes
  • Changes in pressure
  • Friction
  • Turbulence
  • Evaporation

After water goes through all of this, it can leave deposits of calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate on the heat transfer elements of a plumbing system. Over time this forms the rock-like substance called “lime” or “scale.” The presence of this build-up makes it more difficult to heat up or cool down water.

Water conditioners work against the development of build-up so that your water lines function at peak quality.

How Do Magnetic Water Conditioners Work?

The ions of the material gathered on the thermal elements are attracted to and bond with one another to form lime/scale, which may also be known as “calcite.” The treatment chamber responsible for the function of the magnetic water conditioner uses magnetic fields to alter the ions’ charge identity. The ions, instead of being positive and negative, behave as ions with the same charge and are temporarily manipulated into not bonding with one another.

Instead of forming calcite, the calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate form a powdery substance called aragonite. It moves right through the plumbing system, not clogging it up like plaque in an artery like calcite does and does not jeopardize the healthfulness of the water it passes through.

What is Aragonite Good For?

Aragonite can be tremendously helpful in preserving water lines. It creates a soft film that helps to combat the effects of erosion over time. The film clings to all damp surfaces in a plumbing system, thus keeping oxygen and other corrosive agents away from the metallic material of the pipes.

These superior water conditioners work on two levels to preserve pipes and protect them from scale build-up. And they do this without the use of chemicals that you don’t want anywhere near your water!
