Flow-tech Inline Water System recommendation

I just had a plumber recommend that I get a Flow-tech Inline Water System installed which runs $1845 (my house is about 1600 sq feet with 2 bathrooms). Apparently it works by inducing a low frequency electromagnetic signal thoughtout the entire house's plumbing system which reverses the charge on dissolved minerals in the water so they remain in suspension in water and don't cause lime and scale buildup in pipes, faucets, and appliances. It sounds like a pretty good deal as it doesn't have the challenges that a water softener system with salts would have and I can still use the hose to water my garden and not cause the plants any problmes. However, the technology seems new and I can't find any objective reviews on it. Do any of you have it or have experienced with the system? If so, what do you think about it?

This is a joke, right? Snake oil with a fancy name is still snake oil.

I have a system on my house and my personal experience is that it does what it says it does. I'm an engineer by trade and the science behind physical water treatment is sound. The difference between the Flow-Tech system and other devices out their is that it works regardless of flow which make it consistent. I would recommend you try it. My plumber said theres a 1 year money back guarantee so what's the risk?
