Water Softener

Company Reference: 

The Akwamag Plus sustainable water softener applies advanced magnetic science to inhibit the creation of costly and unsightly scale that forms inside water pipe, stains household hardware and bathrooms, and makes it harder to wash dishes and clothes. The softener requires no salt; it uses powerful magnets that work at the molecular level to prevent calcium and scale deposits from forming. It runs maintenance free and is cost-efficient. 

Champions for Change

It all began for me in the fall of 2012, when D.J. Shannahan, owner of Sharp Water and a Water Quality Assn. (WQA) board member, provided me with his wealth of experience to assist the state of Delaware in revising a restrictive septic law. During a visit in February 2013, Richard Mest, WQA president and president of Master Water Conditioning Corp., immediately offered his years of legislative experience throughout the U.S. and specifically in Washington, D.C., to help in Delaware.

Alarm

Company Reference: 

The Revere low-salt alarm offers a cost-effective means of notifying homeowners that they need to add salt to their brine tanks before they run out. The paddle quickly mounts in the brine tank over any 3.5- to 4-in. brine well, and wirelessly transmits to the receiver module, which can be placed in a convenient location. 

Less Hardness, Better Health

One of the most serious tap water problems faced by the country of Poland is the high rate of hardness in natural water sources. The term “hard water” references the abundance of minerals, particularly calcium and magnesium, found in water reserves. In other words, when water contains a significant amount of magnesium and calcium, it is described as hard.

Secondary Disinfection for Swimming

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, E. coli bacteria, normally found in the human gut and feces, are present in alarming quantities in a majority of pools. The bacteria find their way into pools when people do not take showers before swimming or have “accidents” in the water. It is more likely to find fecal contamination in municipal pools. HydroFlow water conditioners are one method of secondary disinfection that can reduce bacterial contamination and chemical consumption in pools.

Inspiration for Innovation

There is a finite amount of available water on our planet, and it is becoming an increasingly scarce resource. As populations increase, significant amounts of water are required to maintain modern life. After the baby boom and massive urbanization of the 20th century, meeting increasing demand while managing water quality expectations became a significant challenge for the water supply industry, which realized that municipal water should be reused more effectively.

Conditioning for Coffee

About 55% of adults in the U.S. drink coffee daily, according to the National Coffee Assn. Coffee shops have helped consumers develop an appreciation for specialty coffee. Higher-grade coffee beans, improved roasting methods and better brewing equipment have improved product quality and increased customer expectations. Because coffee is about 99% water, water quality is critical to the brewing process.
