Abstract: The performance of the concrete in structural aspect is been taken in mind when we go for the large structures and as well as the durability which plays a major role on it. India is fast growing country with more unskilled laborers and the lack of knowledge in concrete behavior which leads to complications in the performance of concrete. The replacement of industrial by-products has become common in the past two decades. But the need of super plasticizer is important to maintain the required water binder ratio. To avoid the failure of fresh concrete properties by using super plasticizer, the magnetic water addition recommended with various strength of magnetic field for the required slump value. The grey water can be reused by treatment with magnetic field. The variation of pH and chemical property produces more durable concrete. The present study aims to find out the physical, chemical, mechanical and durability properties of M20 grade concrete using grey water and 20% flyash with a magnetic power of 0T, 0.8T, 1T and 1.2T respectively. Specimens were also cast with normal water for comparisons. It is found that magnetized grey water with 1.2T shows good improvement in compressive strength, corrosion resistance.
