This information is consistent with the laboratory test results which we conducted. We took 30 samples of various types of water … for example, a sample of city water as is, well water as is, and then having these waters to go through our Hexahedron 999 Units. All of these samples were sent to General Electric Laboratory in Montreal Canada to perform surface tension testing (DYNE). The results clearly showed that all of the Structured Water samples through the Hexahedron 999 units … yielded a higher surface tension from 10 to 20%.
To visually verify these laboratory results, we decided to do a few simple at-home tests which anyone can duplicate. We took a sample of well water and placed one inch of water in an 8 oz glass (Glass No. 1). We took another sample of the same water after it had passed through the Hexahedron 999 Whole House Unit and placed one inch of water into another 8 oz glass (Glass No. 2). We cut two strips of paper towel, 2 inches wide by 10 inches long, and inserted one into each glass of water just enough to touch the water surface and watch the capillarity effect (water rising into the paper towel). The strip touching the Hexahedron 999 water sample had the water rising into the paper at least 20% faster. We left the two glasses of sample waters sitting on the windowsill, side by side, and allowed the water to evaporate totally. The first glass to evaporated all of its water was Glass No. 1, the well water sample, … which totally evaporated 36 hours sooner than Glass No. 2.
Observation: Just as Dr. Mu Shik Jhon mentioned in his book “The Water Puzzle and the Hexagonal Key” … Hexagonally Structured Water with a higher surface tension has a stronger capillarity effect because of the stronger hydrogen bonding. This is also why the well water evaporated sooner than the Hexahedron 999 Structured Water sample … because the well water had a lower surface tension thus a weaker hydrogen bonding.
This all seems pretty straight forward, so why is there so much confusion about the surface tension of structured water? Perhaps it is because Hexagonally Structured Water feels soft, tastes soft, and behaves like soft water ... without changing the mineral content of the water.
NOTE: Since this article was written in 2006 there has been substantial research done on structured water. In 2013 Gerald H. Pollack published his book "The Fourth Phase of Water" which he calls EZ Water. This book is a must read for anyone interested in structured water. See Videos. The subject of surface tension and EZ can be found in Chapter 16 - starting on page 283.
