Kyle we are using magnets to structure the water. We have a number of different sized magnets in use. They range from 32mm up to 100mm.
We initially used them to clean up irrigation lines and aid with salty bore water. It is always hard to gauge the effectiveness of these things. We have measured a drop in the charge of the water, which is meant to be a good thing. In conjunction with applied biology we have cleaned up dam water in a very short period.
We use them on bores and have water constantly running through one into the main dam to structure the whole dam. All of the irrigation water is then structured and aerated, as we put it back into the dam as a makeshift fountain.
We use a smaller (32mm) magnet to structure the water in rainwater tanks for foliar spraying. We also use it to structure all our biological brews that we make up. We have been assured the biology performs much better in structured water.
The magnets we are using are manufactured in Australia by Phion. He spent many years trying to perfect it. He was told he would know he got it when the water took on a blue tinge and the charge in the water dropped. We have seen both of these.
I have included a couple of photos of the magnets below. The second, small one is the one we use on the brews.
