How Genie Works

Genie Computerized Water Conditioner technology uses a powerful microprocessor to create low-frequency impulses that physically change the state of minerals in water to prevent them from binding together and building up inside pipes.

 

So simple, it seems like magic!

Through a small set of wires attached to the main water line, Genie sends powerful impulses into the water supply to neutralize the calcium and magnesium particles in water. As the treated water flows through the plumbing system, the water will reverse the scale forming process, disintegrating the build-up already present, and offer future scale prevention in pipes, water heaters, appliances and showerheads.

Why should I care?

Hard water is ordinary tap water that is high in dissolved minerals, specifically calcium and magnesium. While hard water is not unhealthy, it does create problems due to mineral buildup in pipes and on fixtures and in causing poor soap and detergent performance.

For just 3 cents per day, Genie provides all the benefits of soft water:

 

  • Water feels silky

  • Soap lathers and rinses better

  • Mineral buildup in pipes is prevented

  • Appliances are protected

  • No more spots on fixtures

Genie works to dissolve and flush existing scale in pipes. Scale is also removed from water heaters and plumbing systems, saving energy and money. A family of four can save up to $750 per year with the removal of costly pipe-clogging mineral scale.

Genie vs. traditional softening

Traditional softeners treat hard water through a chemical process using salt or potassium that can be harmful to sewer or septic systems.

 

Genie conditions hard water without the use of salt or chemicals, while retaining minerals essential to good health.

Genie vs. traditional softening

Most frequently asked questions:

• How much does it cost to run?

The unit costs less than $8 in electricity annually.

 

• Will Genie Computerized Water Conditioner affect my water flow?

Our customers often notice an improvement in water flow due to the elimination of pre exiting lime scale from their plumbing system.

 

• We have high iron content in our water; will the Genie solve my iron problems?

The Genie Computerized Water Conditioner does not affect iron or rust directly, however, since your hard minerals (Ca and Mg) no longer form lime scale deposits after Genie Computerized Water Conditioner installation, the iron has nowhere to attach itself. Iron staining becomes inexistent or highly diminished (brown rings inside toilets often disappear).

 

• Can The Genie be used with existing filter systems and water softeners?

Yes. All inline systems will also benefit from the descaling process, prolonging their useful life. Reverse Osmosis membranes will remain scale free and last longer. For people who wish to continue using the traditional water softener, Genie Computerized Water Conditioner should be installed before the softener, this will result in a significant reduction of salt and water savings due to reduced need for regeneration cycles.

 

• Will I notice more lather from soaps, shampoos and detergents?

Water treated with Genie Computerized Water Conditioner behaves as soft water. Far less shampoo, soap or detergent will be needed. On average consumers experience a 25% reduction in the use of all detergents, shampoo and household cleaners etc.

 

• How easy is it to install?

Do it yourself installation is quick and simple - and does not require a plumber or the cutting of pipes.

1- Locate the pipe where your water supply first enters your building.

2- Wrap each signal cable in the same direction 30x around your water supply pipe with a minimum of 2-1/2” between cables.

3- Connect the signal cables to the Genie unit and plug into 110 Volt outlet. Easy installation also means that, should you move, Genie Computerized Water Conditioner is simple to disconnect and to take with you.

 

• Will it work with any pipe material?

The unit can be installed in any pipe material including copper, PVC, steel, galvanized, apex, etc. up to 2-1/2” diameter
