Fluid Dynamics Review and Testimonial: Housetron in the High Desert of Southern California

Posted by Eric Kneller on Jun 20, 2017 11:17:19 AM


Maybe you have had to soak your coffee pot in vinegar and even run some through the coffee maker to get the water flowing again?  That's what Patty used to experience month after month in Helendale / Sliver Lakes, CA.  Not after she installed the Housetron though!  

See what she has to say in her testimonial video...(3:04 long)

How Much Water do I REALLY use inside my Home?

Posted by Eric Kneller on Jun 17, 2017 6:56:00 AM


"My home uses a lot of water and I need the 1 ½” water main (or whatever size you have - 3/4" to 1 ½") that delivers the water into my home. Bigger is better and required when it comes to water main size into my homeMy family will suffer, my plants will die, and my fish will dehydrate if I were ever to downsize that water main or install any piece of water treatment equipment smaller than the line size that would be installed on said main."

Let's see if we can bust that myth with some simple math eh?

Fluid Dynamics Review and Testimonial: Installation of Scaletrons

Posted by Eric Kneller on May 30, 2017 7:24:00 AM


This installation is in a government facility on the domestic water in housing units.  So it is important that all the paperwork is done up front and the crew is able to gain access to the grounds.

Communication to the residents started about a month in advance.  They were advised that the water would be down starting at 9 AM in their building and would remain off for up to 4 hours.  As you will see, it takes much less time than that to do an install with proper planning.

Keeping Memorial Day in our Memory - The Chosin Few

Posted by Eric Kneller on May 26, 2017 5:50:00 AM


You may not be familiar with this story as it is part of what is often referred to as, "The Forgotten War:"

On 27 November 1950, the Chinese 9th Army surprised the US X Corps commanded by Major General Edward Almond at the Chosin Reservoir area (real name Chang Jin). A brutal 17-day battle in freezing weather soon followed. In the period between 27 November and 13 December, 30,000 United Nations troops (later nicknamed "The Chosin Few") under the field command of Major General Oliver P. Smith were encircled and attacked by approximately 120,000 Chinese troops under the command of Song Shi-Lun, who had been ordered by Mao Zedong to destroy the UN forces. The UN forces were nonetheless able to make a fighting withdrawal and broke out of the encirclement while inflicting crippling losses on the Chinese. The evacuation of the X Corps from the port of Hungnam marked the complete withdrawal of UN troops from North Korea. (wikipedia)

Fluid Dynamics Review and Testimonial: Product Demonstration of Housetron

Posted by Eric Kneller on May 24, 2017 5:55:19 PM


Unlike most sales processes, ours typically consists of several "down-sells."  Why?  Simply because the size of our scale prevention units is based on the actual flow in gallons per minute (GPM) rather than on line size.

Most homes and businesses have water mains that would allow enough volume to run just about every water fixture and appliance in the building at once.  Ask yourself this simple question, "How often does that actually happen?"
(believe you know the answer to that already!)

Fluid Dynamics Review and Testimonial: Commercial Dishwasher

Posted by Eric Kneller on Apr 24, 2017 10:37:06 PM


Dishwashers provide a particularly harsh environment for hard water.  One of the main causes that scale forms in hard water areas is the heating of the water.  Since most machines will take 100% hot water and even boost the temperature all the way to 180 degrees F for sanitizing, calcium limescale is a constant struggle.  Even clean dishes and silverware does not "look" clean when covered in scale...YIKES!

Doesn't even matter what color wine is served in a glass that looks like that!  The perception is that the glasses are still dirty and this is particularly frustrating in facilities that promote fine dining or a safe environment for senior care and living, or nutritional lunches for children.

What does Hard Water do to my Water Heater Tank?

Posted by Eric Kneller on Apr 7, 2017 6:04:18 PM


Hot water is a luxury that most of us do not want to live without.  It has really become more of a necessity for daily comfort.  Yet it mostly sits in a tank in our garage or basement waiting for us to utilize it for bathing or the washing of clothes or dishes.

So what is happening inside that tank?  The reality may surprise you - especially if you have hard water.

How does a Water Softener Work?

Posted by Eric Kneller on Apr 1, 2017 7:34:00 AM

Water softeners use what is known as ion exchange.  This is a fairly common process used in a variety of industries such as:  food & beverage, metals finishing, chemical & petrochemical, pharmaceutical, sugar & sweeteners, nuclear, semiconductor, and power.

So what is being "exchanged" in a home inside the tank that is likely stored in a basement or garage?

Spotlight: The Power of a Glass of Water

Posted by Eric Kneller on Mar 30, 2017 7:57:00 AM


A recent article posted on LinkedIn by author, Subir Chowdhury, inspired this post.

Subir provides multiple examples of situations where listening to others while being purposeful and thoughtful makes all the difference in the outcome.  Not only for the other person, but for us, the listener, as well.  These situations ranged from a child in the slums of India rummaging for something to eat to a surgeon and his communications with a husband who was waiting for a report on a wife undergoing a long procedure.

One example was of a man asking for a simple glass of water on a plane...and being denied it.
