This paper presents an experimental study to investigate the effect of using the electromagnetic field on the electric conductivity and dielectric properties of treated tap water by aqua 4 D system according to the time of exposition in a closed water circulation circuit. There is a portion where there is an electromagnetic field obtained by the electromagnetic device. This work includes tap water circulation in the region of the electromagnetic field for 5 min, 10, 15, 20 min. The dielectric and electrical properties were examined and analyzed using the technique impedance spectroscopy in the frequency range going from 0.1 Hz to 1 MHz.

To initiate the phenomena involving water after magnetization with the electromagnetic field. The results clearly show that the magnetic field reduces the dielectric constant and resistance of water and increase its electric conductivity. In this study, we also find that the electrical conductivity of magnetized water increases.
