It is claimed that magnetic treatment of water can prevent formation of hard calcite scale on the walls of hot–water containers, and devices based on this phenomenon are already commercially for industrial use. The present paper puts forward and examines a theoretical model with a view to explain why the low–energy magnetic field of a permanent magnet is effective at all and why the phenomenon persists for some time after the treatment (memory effect).
