Has anyone understood how or if this works! How can a magnet remove limescale which in not magnetic ie none iron?
I looked at these few years ago and read about it but did not find any logical or scientific reason that it might work. Also where are all these are being collected as if you look inside one of these after months of use there is either nothing there or a small metal particle which would have been caught in the tap filter. If you really want one just buy few rare earth magnets for few pence and glue it round the copper pipe coming into the house.
Please also remember if you buying this the cost of the plumber to fit it.

I have some snake oil for sale that goes well with this.
Well, Having an low voltage electric one that pretty much does the same, I can say beyond doubt mine works.
Water comes in with liquid slurry the low voltage coil wrapped round the pipes creates a zone whereby the molecules that form limescale stay in a slurry state.
I anticipate the magnet works in a similar manner
my 1970s house pipework was choked with limescale, it came out in great gobbets from taps, the hot water tank was bad (despite a sacrificial node) I fitted my electric version & within 7 months everything was being loosened & purging the solid stuff, I no longer have to worry about shower head sprays as it really rarely needs attention, maybe once every 18 months - two years just in case.

I replaced the element in the hot water tank a couple of years & calcium deposits had all but disappeared, the tank is a 1987 unit (if memory serves) & previously had a big build up on the bottom inside.
If magnets & copper bracelets can help with bloodflow / arthritis etc then why not magnets / low voltage to change the molecular level of water?

Seriously?

No need for a plumber, just some simple DIY knowledge.

Jeez, Or measure how much room you have on your water mains inlet pipework at the widest point & buy a clip on magnet version that clicks shut. ..super strong magnet may cost more but less than a plumber who will laugh their nuts off.

Or learn a few simple things like how to cut a pipe, take the sharp edges off, wrap some plumbers tape around it to give a better seal & understand plumbing olives etc & be able to carry out a few basic jobs henceforth.
Had my daughter at the age of 7 replacing a cistern siphon completely, sealing up the pipes slow leak, & adding a decent gas / water capable ball joint, & understanding where / how to turn the house water on & off as needed.
She did that for a cub scout badge.
NB I didn't have a dad nor tools around to be shown what to do, so I had to learn as I went / go along, damned if I want my daughter to feel as useless as I did.
