Our Relationship with Water
Today, water quality has become an issue, whether it be the quantity or the quality. This is a problem that affects millions of Americans, and many more worldwide. In order to address this problem, there is something called magnetically structured water. People may not be familiar with this concept, but there is new research coming out showing how structured water can improve water quality by “preventing and removing scale deposits in pipes and water containing structures”, increase crop yields, decrease the amount of water necessary, and align the water on a molecular level (www.fractalwater.com).
Magnetically structured water aligns the molecules of the water, bringing the displaced orientation of the polar molecules into a coherent direction under the influence of a magnetic field. The stronger the magnetic field, the greater the alignment will be, allowing for a more efficient flow of water within the system. This prevents corrosion and buildup of suspended particulates and solids from building up within the system. According to a study with NASA, magnetically structured water had a corrosion rate of 0.0 mils/year, compared to 1 to 50 mils/year obtained from using chemical inhibitors, with 4 mils/year being considered acceptable (Kuivinen, 1975).
The treated water “contributes to increase in farm yields for both livestock and crop farming, yield being expressed in quantity and quality of the produce.” (Lin, Yotvat, 1990). The “wet water” has increased droplet size, and the magnetically aligned particles have deeper soil and root penetration, increasing the efficiency of water and nutrient transfer, while decreasing the amount of water necessary to care for the plants. Water becomes “degassed in the process of being magnetized and this degassing increased soil permeability, which creates an increase in irrigation efficiency.” (Bogatin et al., 1999). The magnetic water also “increased the leaching of excess soluble salts, lowered soil alkalinity and dissolved slightly soluble salts.” (Hilal and Hilal, 2000). This helps with the control of balancing the soil contents and creates a more stable exchange platform for nutrients for plants and livestock.
The “reduced surface tension observed in the magnetically charged water results in better infiltration of water and a reduction in water and chemical use.” (Goldsworthy et al., 1999). Because of the increased efficiency of the water due to molecular alignment, there has been found to be an increased water flow rate in gallons per minute, and also decreased pump intake pressure necessary to move the water within a system. It was also found to decrease the pressure necessary in the work rate of a pump.
Magnetically structured water is just now starting to be studied and moved into industrial scale applications. Moving from fringe science to mainstream application will show how those Teslas out there were right all along. No need to call them “Mad scientists” any longer.
