Hard water scale reduction Palm Desert

How To Stop Scale Build Up In Copper Pipes California

Hi, this is Rick from Pure Elements. I wanted to show you some empirical proof of what type of results we get with our water systems.

So many of the competitors put up pictures on a website of a crusty old pipe and then a brand new pipe, and tell you the before and after results that can be achieved with their systems. This is hard evidence of what happens as the water comes into one of our systems and what type of scale reduction we achieve on the outlet of the same system. This system was installed in La Habra Heights California for a period of two and a half years. You can see the major scale buildup on the left-hand side where the water’s entered, and you can see that, although it’s not perfect, we have a substantial reduction in the scale buildup on the outlet, probably about 90%.

So this is what we’re able to achieve in a salt-free manner, and we’d love to help you out with that, so please give us a call.

Fitz September 15 2016 – The Five Important Points A Water Filter Must Perform

Fitz Sept 15 2016 – The Five Important Points A Water Filter Must Perform.

We’ve got a perfect blend of music. As you know, I take you genre by genre all over the music spectrum, great music on the way. But first, I want to reconnect with our friend Rick Allen of Pure Elements. It’s the parent company of Crystal Clear Home, that great water filtration system you’ve heard me talking about for years.

I love mine and it’s so great to shower and drink water from every faucet in our house. The other day — it’s so funny — Wendy was in the bathroom and she had a cup of water that was out. I came in and I said, “I’ll go get you some water,” and she said, “You don’t have to go get me some water, I’ve got the water right here from these faucets.”

I just had a brain freeze and I forgot about that. Anyway, that’s my long introduction for Rick Allen. Good morning, Rick.

Rick: Good morning, Fitz. How are you?

Jim: I’m great.

Rick: It sounds like you’re doing great.

Jim: I’m doing spectacular, thank you so much. It’s a beautiful day in our desert paradise and we are always thrilled to go ahead and spread the word about Crystal Clear Home, the great water filtration system. Your company, Pure Elements, keeping us all healthy and up-to-date on what our water system is here in the desert. You’re going to go briefly run down the five points of the benefits of this system for us this morning.

Rick: Absolutely. I think it’s important to remind everybody in our valley what they should be looking for when they delve into addressing their water conditioners on their total property. I’ll just run down quickly the five really important things.

My biggest passion, as you’ve known for years, is getting the chemicals and things out of the bath and shower water and out of the home living environment. These different things, many of which are carcinogenic, they are aerosol. We take them in through our pores and into our lungs and that’s the greatest area of exposure we have to water-borne problems.

Number one, you want to eliminate those things, both from your bathing experience and your entire household environment because they migrate out into the living space and hang out for a few hours. That’s been my biggest passion for well over 30 years. The second thing is drinking water.

You should be able to get good quality drinking water without any salt added and with the natural minerals that we have in the water left intact, the helpful minerals, but with the chemicals and heavy metals, as well as pharmaceuticals and things addressed so that water tastes great and is slightly alkaline actually, which a lot of our healthcare longevity guys love today.

I’m not a super fan of the high, high alkaline waters on a regular basis, but I think it’s great to be able to grab this out of your faucet somewhere at a slightly alkaline level of maybe 7.6 to 7.8 on that. Hard water issues are just a pain in the neck. You should be able to address those things. As you know, we feature products that address that inside the home without the use of any salt.

high alkaline water may not be good

We’re doing that in an environmentally sound manner which fits right in line with the first two things we were talking about. No slippery feeling, nothing harmful for the environment and perfect ability to water houseplants and do all the different things that you want to do with your water inside the house.

You move to the total property side of things, so item number four is the swimming pools and water features, and fountains and things. There is no perfect fix because every one of these is a piece of art actually, but we’re very effective at reducing staining at the water line as you know from your previous pool…

Jim: It’s so ugly, that white, that salt, that leeching looks so, you know.

Rick: It does and just as importantly from the standpoint of protecting your wallet, we want to protect the infrastructure. The pumps and the recirculating system, and all of those different things from the damage that the hard water creates. That has to be done in a salt-free manner.

A traditional water softener will destroy a pool, so be very careful as you delve into the total property things. Make sure you’re dealing with experts that can do that without the use of salt. Last but not least, we benefit landscape and irrigation systems, and all the plant life.

What I love is to go through one of our golf communities, drive down the street, and you’ve got very similar homes with very similar landscaping. You see a house that has our system and everything is going crazy. Gardeners are trying to keep up. It’s all bright green and luscious and the rest of the homes look not so much.

That’s because our salt-free water conditioning approach allows you to use less water, less fertilizer and really benefits and promotes the growth and the vibrancy of the plant life. Those are the five things. You know, chemical-free bathing.

Jim: It’s great, the benefits. People ask Wendy and me all the time when we’re out and about, “Does that really work?” I always say a big Y-E-S, it most definitely does. Now, let me ask you a question. What university of water did you go to anyway?

Rick: It’s the Rick University of Hard Knocks of 37 years of learning. I’m connected with a lot of the very top engineers in the industry and I have access to a lot of guys that are much, much, much more deeply educated in it than I am. I’m just very lucky to be able to have learned a lot from those guys along the way.

Jim: What got you interested Rick in water? What got you interested in really delving into learning about it?

Rick: I had always wanted to own my own company and we looked at a whole bunch of different options when I was in the middle of my college years in 1979. Actually, my father was instrumental in starting the office coffee service industry where people bring out a coffee brewer and then, they supply you all of the ancillary things from coffee to tea to water.

He actually introduced water as something that was important to offices way back in the day. I kind of grew up in a water family. I guess you could just say that we are the Allen’s Waterman’s family.

Jim: There you go. Rick Allen, always a pleasure. I knew there was a backstory there. We encourage everyone to get in touch with you and if we’ve piqued your attention, call Rick. Crystal Clear Water, it’s everything he says. I just can’t testify enough. 346-4850, find out how you can get your own Crystal Clear Home water filtration system. 346-4850. Rick, always a pleasure.

Rick: Thank you very much for taking my call, Fitz.

Jim: Always a pleasure. Thanks for educating us about the water situation and thanks for keeping us updated, and thanks for keeping us healthy, man.

Rick: Best I can do.

Jim: There you go, baby. Make it a terrific Thursday.

Rick: You too, I’ll talk to you very soon, Fitz.

Jim: Thank you so much, Rick.

Should You Plumb Your Home With PEX?

Interviewer: Rick, assume that I’m a homeowner and I’ve had like four pinhole leaks in the past. Do I need to re-plumb my house with Pex?

Rick: Absolutely not. We’ve talked about and are aware of certain things in terms of concerns with the plastic tubing. But the bottom line is we can prevent you from having any further pinhole leaks by simply addressing the water chemistry issues that are causing them. And I like to reassure all of our homeowners that it doesn’t matter where the copper came from, if it came from China, or India, or America. It doesn’t matter how thick the copper is. It doesn’t matter how new the copper is or how old the copper is. The copper’s being attacked by the chemicals and the situation in today’s current water supplies. So we can stop that attack, and even if we’ve had some aggressive behavior before that has been eating through the pipe wall in certain areas, as long as we stop it before it actually penetrates, we can keep it status quo like that. But I like to reassure our homeowners that the rest of the copper, around where these pinhole leaks are occurring, is in exceptional shape. The phenomenon of pinhole leaks is specific to exacting areas, it’s focal points, inside the copper plumbing. So if we can eliminate the things eating through the copper, as well as address the focal points and make them go away, then the rest of the copper is in exceptional shape and there’s absolutely no need to consider repiping in the questionable Pex materials, and certainly no need to ever consider putting epoxy lining inside your pipes.

PEX piping concerns

If you’re concerned about the epidemic pinhole leak problem in South Orange County, and you live in any of these cities: Aliso Viejo, Dana Point, El Toro, Ladera Ranch, Laguna Beach, Laguna Hills, Laguna Nigel, Lake Forest, Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, San Clemente, or San Juan Capistrano, you need to take control immediately and address your water chemistry to protect the copper plumbing infrastructure in your home, as well as your family’s health. So please give us a call at the number below, and we’ll be happy to help you out.
