Ecozone Washing Machine and Dishwasher Anti-Limescale Ball
The rubber split and allowed the magnet to damage the paddles and drum beyond repair. This was only noticed after clothes were being damaged during the wash cycle. This item ruined a washing machine less than 3 years old. Not the only review that points out this design flaw.

A product that I have found hard to find
If this product works as well as the discontinued although a little more expensive if it works well over time it will pay it's self many times over

Only one colour to choose from shocking pink. This help to eradicate limescale in dishwashers and washing machines. Have only use this so far in my dishwasher. I am impressed over time it will pay for itself. Contains a strong magnet to get rid of limscale.

One of the best products I have ever bought
I read all pro and con reviews and in the end I bought the Magnoball as I liked the concept plus I use other Ecozone products which have always given me very good results. So after using the Magnoball for 7 months, in both my dishwasher and washing machine, I can say I simply love it. I live in a very hard water area and this ball is doing a great job at softening it, which helps my dishes come out much cleaner and clothes much softer. I worked in the chemical industry all my life and I know that the less calcium carbonate (limescale) in the water, the better the cleaning results and the Magnoball does exactly this.It's also cheaper and less hassle than fitting water softeners. I very much recommend it to everybody.

Warning to users
We have used a Magnoball in our Miele washing machine for 3-4 years and whilst not seeing any improvements, carried on using it in the belief that it was keeping unseen parts "limescale free" .However a few weeks ago, my wife noticed that clothes were snagging on the drum as she emptied the machine. Upon inspection, the drum, especially the paddles were dented, some sharply enough to snag on the clothes.
We could not think what would have caused these dents, then we noticed the Magnoball was splitting at each end and that the hard, rough edge of a magnet was revealed and this was obviously what had caused the damage.
When we pointed out to "Ecozone", that one of their products had ruined our machine they merely offered to replace the Magnoball if we returned it.
This was an insult - the drum is beyond repair and we are now awaiting delivery of a new machine, which will never see a Magnoball.

So Far So Good
I purchased two limescale balls - one for the dishwasher, one for the washing machine. London water is so hard I will try anything to try to soften it, improve the quality of the wash and protect the appliance. I have had them for about a couple of months so far, and so far so good. It's hard to say whether they are truly working; only time will tell. However, they have not split as has been the experience of others. Just in case, I avoid putting them in a low-load wash cycle to avoid having them bounce around, and in the dishwasher they are in a secure spot (cutlery holder!).

"Great balls of limescale!!!"
Sounded feasible and as we suffer really badly from limescale here I brought them to try out in both our washing machine and dishwasher. Used for a while now and definitely noticed a difference from Day 1 in both appliances. Great little idea.

money saving product
Useful product as saves on time and money using limescale products seems to be doing its job.
