Water System Static Trap

About five years ago, I was irrigating a field with aluminum sprinkler pipe
and well water. After irrigating the field for about two months, I noticed
a clear, jelly-like substance forming at the end of the last sprinkler pipe.
I didn't know what the material was, but when I put my finger in it, it
tasted sweet.

I have thought up a trap design based on Sam's observations. I understand that his sprinkler pipes were configured somewhat like this:


This "drawing" represents two sections of pipe the upright lines in the center top of each section of pipe represents the sprinkler stand pipes which the sprinklers are attached to. The slash mark toward the end of the right pipe would represent the boundary between ordinary water and the m-state water.

Since there is a dead space at the end of the right pipe section where water does not flow this would provide a comfy space for the ORMUS elements to collect. They seem to like aluminum in the first place and they like to remain stationary in relation to magnetic fields. This dead space at the end would fill both of those requirements. The alternative route for them to travel is out through a spinning sprinkler head. This arrangement fills all of the requirements of a magnetic trap.

Static Trap Design

My trap design has water coming into a cross tee and leaving one leg of the cross tee through a plastic pipe which has a spiral of magnetic tape wound around it. The other two legs of the cross tee lead to a two foot long, large diameter section of pipe with a valve near the tee and a drain plug at the other end. This configuration looks like this:

When this device is installed it will be horizontal.
The water main will enter from the upper right and exit to the upper left.

The exit pipe is spiral wrapped with magnetic tape for about nineteen inches of length.

The two large pipes are the accumulators.

There are valves between them and the cross shaped manifold.

The m-state should collect in the large sections of pipe.
These sections can be drained by closing the valve and opening the drain plugs in the ends of the large diameter pipe.

The large sections of pipe can be opened up so that I can experiment with different fill materials.

Jim says that acrylic sweaters will absorb and hold the m-state polywater quite well. He also claims that these elements have an affinity for aluminum as does David Hudson. Being able to open up the large pipe would allow me to try the trap for a while with an aluminum lining and without or with and without it being stuffed with an acrylic sweater.
