* Depends on quality. Cheaper units only charge the water for 4 hours so won't seem to work. Recommended units prevent scale bonding for 24 hours. The key is to make sure the charged water is used before the charge wears off.

** Water spotting is the spot marks you see on glass and shiny surfaces - caused by scale.

*** Your machinery will be protected by all these treatments in that they prevent a damaging build up of hard scale. However the "cosmetic" effects - ie what you see - such as the unpleasant film floating on your tea / coffee might not seem that different, depending on your local water quality. That is why we rate some of these as "medium".
