Water pipes

27-May-2016

It might look innocent enough - but your metal water pipe could be a source of high magnetic fields in your home.

Metal water pipes often conduct current that generates a magnetic field - sometimes in places where you and your family spend time, such as behind or under beds or lounges.

A customer measured a magnetic field of 189 milliGauss on the water pipe that ran right beside her bed. [This is 47 times the levels that has been associated with childhood leukemia.] No wonder she had such high readings on her pillow!

You can inexpensively measure the magnetic fields in your water pipe - and throughout your home - with our FW Bell 4180 gaussmeter, available for hire, as well as purchase. It comes with instructions for fixing the problem. You can see more about it here.
