California Homes Magazine Article on Pure Elements Water

Rick Allen, CEO of Pure Elements Water, did a recent interview with California Homes Magazine for their May/June 2020 issue.

The article touched on a lot of different subjects with some specific Covid-19 information as well.

“WITH COVID -19 SWIRLING AROUND US, creating health fears, economic strife and environmental concerns, we need to take control of everything we can. While we languish quarantined inside our homes, now is the time to reduce our reliance on outside necessities. Rick Allen has been a visionary for water treatment designed to give people control of their household water quality. His Newport Beach company, Pure Elements Water, has helped thousands of homeowners enjoy safe, high quality water.”

Water treatment is becoming more and more a necessity because water supplies are becoming increasingly sketchy.  They are constantly changing the chemicals and the amounts they use to treat our tap water with.  And while we did need to use chemicals to disinfect the water of bacteria and microbes, we personally don’t need to drink that water once the chemicals have done their job.  The healthiest thing to do is to remove them from you drinking and bathing water.

Rick Allen displays high quality filter media.

“The greatest area of exposure to harmful chemicals occurs while bathing. Carcinogens are in your shower water and steam, resulting in concentrated exposure through skin and lungs. Pure Elements custom-designs whole house filtration and salt-free water conditioning systems around each municipality to achieve maximum protection.”

This “custom” designed water filtration system is the main reason Pure Elements Water is the very best water filtration company out there.  Competitors in most cases use generic carbon and other generic media in their filters.  This “one size fits all” approach has proven to be worthless in a short period of time.  If you are not going to address each harmful chemical with the exact media that removes it, what is the point of the filtration system?  You have just wasted your money if you are not “matching the hatch” so to speak.  (That’s a fishing reference you can look up if you are curious.)

Another massive problem in Southern California and other areas across the country is pinhole leaks in copper pipes.  Rick talks about that also in this article.

“With an epidemic number of pinhole leaks in copper piping in Southern California, Pure Elements has designed systems that successfully address the core causes. No home with a Pure Elements’ system installed in the last twelve years has reported a further pinhole leak. These homeowners avoided the cost and inconvenience of replacing their pipes or applying epoxy linings. It’s a Win-Win – Save thousands, no disruption, prevent future pinhole leaks and enjoy high quality water throughout the home.”

This article snippet touches on a major point.  If you have pinhole leaks and you install a Pure Elements Water system, you are extremely unlikely to get another pinhole leak.  Our system is proven and we back it up with a killer guarantee that no one else in the business can offer.  This system is the best at preventing pinhole leaks in copper plumbing. 

“Pure Elements proprietary systems also address hard water issues without the use of salt or chemicals, protecting tankless water heaters, appliances, fixtures and our environment. No slimy feeling or problems associated with outdated salt-based systems – 98 out of every 100 systems designed today by Pure Elements are salt-free.”

Salt free water conditioner is not a water softener but removes or reduces hard water issues in an environmentally safe manner.

Not only does the water filtration system do all the things mentioned above but it can also remove or reduce hard water issues without salt.  See water softeners use salt and this is very effective with hard water.  But water softeners also come with a lot of maintenance requirements and they are not good for the environment.  If you care about the planet, a water softener is not the right thing to use.  Luckily Pure Elements Water solves this by using a water conditioner like no other.  It works amazingly well and is a better alternative for most people.

Cleaning a Pure Elements Water Catalytic Water Conditioner Core

We’re going to show you now, how to clean the core in one of our exterior catalytic water conditioners.

First, you need to break the seal on the unions so that you can remove the core. This will require a pipe wrench and a pair of channel locks.

It’s best to disconnect the unit at both ends with both unions so you can easily slide the core out for cleaning.  The core will slide out of the body with the serial number end at the top.

Clean the Catalytic Water Conditioner Core

The second step in this process is to clean the catalytic water conditioning core.  This is best done with a mixture of muriatic acid to water.  So we fill our bucket up with about four gallons of water and we add one half a gallon of muriatic acid to the water to clean our core.  Obviously be very careful in handling muriatic acid. Be sure to wear eye protection and follow all the instructions on the bottle.

Next, we are going to dip our catalytic conditioning core into the muriatic acid and water solution.   Again, pay attention to the warning labels on the muriatic acid and follow all instructions

With the core in the murky water and muriatic acid mixture, we found that it’s best to leave it in for 10 to 15 minutes for a proper cleaning.

After soaking in the muriatic acid and water for about 5 minutes, you’ll notice of core returns to its natural color of grey.   Be sure to thoroughly rinse your core with clean water prior to reinsertion.

This car is now clean and ready to be reassembled into the conditioner.   Also, be sure to dispose of your muriatic acid and water solution properly with regard to codes in your own area. 

Before reassembling the catalytic conditioner into the copper body be sure to use Teflon tape amply on the threads for a complete seal.  Make sure when you put your Teflon tape in place that you cover the entire lip to create a proper seal and for ease of re-installation.

Since everyone is stuck at home, many clients are taking advantage of the down time and getting their systems installed.  Some have put it off for a while but now it feels good to take care of this essential task and cross it off the “to do” list.

Also, lots of folks living in Orange County are finally dealing with their pinhole leak problems by looking at the options.  Pure Elements Water provides the option of changing the water chemistry so pinhole leaks will not form again.  The solution is simpler than anyone imagined.  Just remove the contaminants like Chloramine and the pinholes don’t form.  You will still need to fix the leak this time but now you don’t need to repipe the house with copper, or PEX or use epoxy pipe lining.  We have a great track record showing no pinhole leaks formed by Chloramines again.  And there is a guarantee!

You will notice from the picture above how clean the outlet pipe is.  That is what our systems do because of the catalytic conditioner and special media used in the tanks.  The system cuts down the calcium deposits and keeps hard-water scale from forming.  This in turn stops the pinhole leaks from happening again.

What is a catalytic converter (conditioner) and how does it work in comparison to a softener?

A catalytic Conditioner permanently alters the state of the calcium carbonate (the primary hard water component), greatly reducing its ability to form hard water scale. This is accomplished without the addition of salt or foreign chemicals, does not create slimy water, and is a more healthful and environmentally sound approach.

Water conditioning works extremely well and uses no salt like water softeners do.

The inlet (raw tap water) to the system is heavily caked in calcium deposits, and the outlet (treated) line is clean and scale-free.

This also helps prevent pinhole leaks in copper pipes. Check out these lab tests, which use water conditioning as part of the process to clean pinhole leaks from coming back. http://pureelementswater.net/independent-lab-testing/
