In this study, the physicochemical treatment of magnetized water during its heating and cooling was monitored. Very important results of the action of the electromagnetic field on tap water were found. The application of electromagnetic fields influenced the physicochemical characteristics of water by lowering its surface tension from 0.083 (N/m) to 0.0417 (N/m) at a temperature of 26.5°C with a percentage of 26.36%. The calorific capacity of the tap water was decreased from 4.6133 jK-1g-1 to 3.8366 jK-1g-1 after magnetization by an electromagnetic field produced by an electromagnetic device, which corresponds to a percentage of 20.24%. The heating and cooling rates of magnetic water increased compared to tap water. The detection of the magnetization of the drinking water breakthrough and the interface processes by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) illustrate the complementarily of thermal treatment. Small traces of magnetization by the electromagnetic field were detected using complex conductivity, complex permittivity, angle phase, and coefficient of diffusion according to the Brasher–Kingsbury equation.
