Mine is an electronic one and it works.
All the top water softeners people make them,. Even Fernox make one. If
they did not
work these companies would not risk their reputation.
Works a treat. Highly recommended.
"Fernox Electronic Water Conditioner Fernox has recently launched the
solution to limescale in the home. The Fernox Electronic Water Conditioner,
an electronic scale-reducing device protects your system against the
damaging effects of limescale that can result in boiler or hot water
Using the latest micro-processor technology the unit produces a complex
modulating frequency waveform which causes the calcium carbonate to form
clusters. This way it remains in suspension and does not accumulate inside
the hot water cylinder or boiler, ensuring the system runs at peak
efficiency and saving on heating costs.
Not only does the Electronic Water Conditioner prevent the build-up of
further hard scale, it also dissolves existing scale, which will be flushed
from your system.
Guaranteed for 5 years the Fernox Water Conditioner offers long term
protection for the home."
One, the WaterImp, is even "endorsed" by the Chemical Engineering Dept. at
Recommend the Water King electronic de-scaling box
Eco-Hometec (made by MAN) make one of the finest boilers around, in the RR
class, Andy hall will tell you all about it, yet as Simon Stroud on this ng,
who bought one, said..."One small issue when dealing with Eco-Hometec was
their apparent keenness for "electronic" water conditioners."
Top makers of heat banks/cylinder and boilers recommend electronic. They
recommend them as "in the field" they are known to work.
And my Aqua-Dial electronic descaler, who make phosphor descalers and full
salt softeners, still works.

I rather doubt if they are in the electronics business, Almost
certainly they resell something designed and made by someone else.
That is stretching it.
The company also repeatedly says that water is "capricious". WHat
kind of science is that?
There is inconsistency.
"Our units are not softeners. They are conditioners"
"In a very short time, approximately four weeks, you will notice the
water begins to feel softer. Taps, shower roses and other outlets
gradually lose their coating of scale. Lather will increase and the
use of detergents will be reduced."
These last two claims are chemically impossible.
Not when I spoke to them. The recommendation was phosphor dosing or
ion exchange softening.
Exactly like the technology.
One particular unit claims bit things for an alternating hf current in a
coil. It is so annoying that it screws up radio reception for several
hhouses near it, and of course it don't work neither.
If there was any validity in this, then in the intervening years they would
have been developed surely?
