Figure 2 shows a section from the system without a Super Imp installed. Scale formation can clearly be seen on the inside wall of the pipe. Remember this is only after 30 days.

- The Super Imp device has been shown to reduce the deposition of scale under the conditions tested. This has been confirmed by analysis of both total dissolved solids and conductivity in parallel trials using a simulated domestic hot water / radiator heating system.
- The Super Imp has prevented the deposition of about 10 mg of scale/day for 30cm length of 1 inch pipe under the conditions tested.
- The Super Imp device has been shown not to effect the pH of water passing through piping where it has been installed.
These tests were performed in June 2000 using our existing models. Since then we have continued our development and have introduced new and more powerful versions of all our electronic water conditioners whilst keeping the price the same.
