Family Matters

Ring, ring.

“Good afternoon. This is Kelly with Moti-Vitality ... No thank you, I’m not in the market for a Disney Cruise at this time.”

I really should learn to ignore the toll-free numbers and the “unknown callers.”

I knew telemarketing calls would be part of the price I would have to pay, however, when I made the decision to use my cell phone as my primary business number so that I could be more accessible to my clients.

I end the call and go back to scouring resumes for a client who asked us to hire a sales professional.

Ring, ring.

Well-Timed Maintenance

Most wells experience some type of operational problem during the normal process of aging. The rate at which a well will experience such problems can be influenced by many factors, including water chemistry, aquifer characteristics, operational schedules and well construction details, just to name a few.

There are many types of wells across the globe, including water supply, injection, aquifer storage recovery, extraction, monitoring and dewatering, and most deteriorate as they age.

Acing the Test

Approximately 30 million Americans get their drinking water from private household wells. Protection of private wells does not fall under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Safe Drinking Water Act, so well owners must take it upon themselves to ensure their water quality. To keep water clean and pure and the well operating at peak performance, regular water testing is an important maintenance tool.

Alternative Applications

In my previous article, “Ultrafiltration: A Business Growth Opportunity” (September 2013), I referenced a 2010 BBC research report stating that “the U.S. market for ultrafiltration (UF) technologies was worth $940 million in 2010. It is estimated to be valued at $1.24 billion by 2015.”1 Simply put, the business opportunities for UF are growing rapidly, which could prove extremely profitable for the savvy professional water dealer.
