Aquavital maintenance: simple steps to maximize performance

Aquavital is an innovative device that improves the quality of your water and prevents the formation of limescale. Although it’s designed to work with minimal maintenance, there are some simple steps you can follow to ensure your device is working at its best. In this blog post, we will explain these steps in detail.

The need for maintenance:

Aquavital uses strong magnetic fields to change the structure of calcium hydrogen carbonate molecules in water, preventing the formation of lime. During this process, however, magnetic particles in the water, such as iron particles, can be attracted to the magnetic fields. Over time, these particles can form what is known as a Farraday’s cage, which shields the magnetic field and impairs the effectiveness of Aquavital.

Our maintenance recommendation:

To prevent this, we recommend removing Aquavital from the line twice a year for 24 hours. This allows the magnetic particles to dislodge and be removed from the device. After this 24-hour break, you can mount Aquavital on the line again.

If you perform this maintenance regularly, the magnetic particles will be so small that they will not have any negative effects, for example, by clogging aerators or other water fittings.


Aquavital maintenance is a simple but important step to ensure the performance and longevity of your unit. By regularly removing the device from the pipe, you can ensure that the magnetic fields work effectively and your water remains free of limescale. Remember that the best maintenance is that which is performed regularly. This way you can be sure to get the most out of your Aquavital unit.
