The CALCLEAR system was initially used by the dairy industry to de-scale hot water services and milking apparatus. An added benefit was the removal of algae from the milking shed floor (algae needs calcium crystals to form on and 4 micron particles are too small). Long term testing is being done to establish an increase in milk production and more rapid bone growth in the young calves. The exact mechanism involved would almost certainly be that the calcium crystals in the bore water are changed into a form that can be taken up directly from the treated water supply. This has certainly been proven in the case of plants. Increases of up to 10% have been observed but further trials will be needed to confirm that no other process is involved.
