Number two – We’re looking for drinking water that is slightly alkaline and has the natural mineral content in place. But it has had the chemicals and the heavy metals addressed.
Number three – We need to address hard water issues throughout the home both for traditional and tankless water heaters. The hot and cold water will flow from every faucet without salt and without chemicals in an environmentally sound manner.
Number four – It’s very important to protect copper pipes from pinhole leaks. We’re very effective at that stopping them regardless of how many may have occurred in the past. And that eliminates the need to re-pipe or use epoxy linings.
Number five – Is your swimming pool and water features. We want to minimize staining at the water line and protect the pumps, heaters, salt cells and all of the infrastructure there.
And last but not least, we need to have all of your landscaping have the capability to thrive with less water and less fertilizer. Especially organic things you may be consuming such as fruit and vegetables.
Any good total property water system will address all six of these issues.
We’d love to help you out so go ahead and give us a call today thanks you
We were contacted by a Laguna Beach client, after installing one of our systems, with reports of water tests results with pH of 6.0 (highly acidic) and 30-50 parts per million of lead.
The pH is extremely acidic and would not be something we would consider as healthy for consumption over time.
This lead level is devastating to health over time – The maximum “Action Level” is set at 15 parts per BILLION with a health goal of zero.
The client bought a do it yourself (DIY) water kit that was providing completely inaccurate results in many of the line items on the test strips.
In fact several categories on the items list show measurements in the wrong register (parts per million that should be parts per billion, for example, and pH is not measured in parts per million.
We tested water from our HealthyHome whole house filter and salt free conditioner, our purified remineralized slightly-alkaline drinking water system, Kroger brand purified bottled water and the raw city water.
The real results were stellar from our systems, with pH levels about 8.0 (slightly Alkaline) and perfect balances of mineral content.
The test strips showed over 75 parts per million in the purified bottled water, which tested with 0 parts per million.
The purified water tested at 38 parts per million (natural coral calcium we are adding back for health and flavor), yet the test strips showed more than double the parts per million actually in the water and attributed the majority to lead!
Fact: the city water contains no lead, and our systems reduce or eliminate lead when present.
We have seen test strips marketed for years, but these strips are notoriously inaccurate and in many cases cause false alarm or are used as a tool to sell home water systems (the reason they are supported by the old school water treatment industry).
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR PUT ANY TRUST IN TEST STRIP WATER TESTS.
Sure. We have been watching the PEX plastic, which has been used in California for more than 10 years now.
We know that all of the brands of PEX are introducing different levels of carcinogenic chemicals, although below the legal limit. (Legal limits for contaminants in tap water have NOT been updated in close to 20 years!) And these things are getting into the bath and shower water and the consumption water.
We also know from a price standpoint that PEX piping has nearly doubled from re-piping a home.
This makes addressing your water quality conditions with a whole house filtration and salt free water conditioning system much more affordable. You do not need to re-pipe if you change the water chemistry and remove the chloramines that cause pinhole leaks. And do it before you get pinhole leak damage. Prevent them rather than wait to repair them.
Our systems are a great way to save money and avoid the disruption and other problems that come with re-piping with plastic pipes.
Here is another beautiful Pure Elements house water filtration installation in Newport Beach, California. This installation resides on one of the Port Streets in the Harbor View Homes community – the HealthyHome Solution was expertly tucked into the homeowner’s garage cabinets. This environmentally sound water filter and conditioning system has a 12-inch diameter tank and stands feet tall. It fits perfectly inside the owner’s the 17-inch by 6-foot cabinet.
The HealthyHome Solution water filter system in this home has an estimated filter capacity to remove chlorine and contaminants from 2.25 million gallons of water. The owners of this unit will not need to replace the filter media for a very very long time. These whole house water filters usually only need media replacement every 10 years. That is in typical conditions.
This is one of pure Elements’ HealthyHome Total Property Solution systems. One more special feature of this water filter system, not found in any other systems, is a proprietary catalytic conditioner on the main water line. This water conditioner is located directly behind the meter and provides benefits to the landscaping, water features, and the salt pool in the backyard. This salt-free conditioner helps the water percolate better to plant roots. Staining on spillways and fountains will be reduced. In addition, the heating unit, pumps and plumbing of the salt pool will be protected from hard water buildup and costly maintenance.
After a taste test with the owner, we confirmed the filtered water straight out of the kitchen sink tasted better than their Sparkletts bottled water! Now they get healthier, high quality water directly from every faucet in the home, without the extreme cost and environmental problems associated with bottled waters.
Not a lot has changed. The healthcare community in general is looking for water that has some natural mineral content in it and reverse osmosis systems contrary to that philosophy strip the majority of the minerals out.
The healthcare community is also looking for water that is at least slightly alkaline. In some extreme cases high alkaline.
Reverse osmosis systems by nature, by their process, create an acidic water, which is something none of us wants is the acidity.
This is very similar for purified waters in bottles and once you have an acidic water in a plastic bottle you’re leeching chemicals into that water from the plastic just compounding your issues.
So still it is better to do purification when you do reverse osmosis it needs additional stages to add back minerals, natural coral and calcium and magnesium.
And bring the pH up to at least a 7.5 slightly alkaline rating.
And bottled waters are probably better to be purchased in the mountain spring categories like Fiji Crystal Geyser, Arrowhead. So uh take care on that.
If you’re doing reverse osmosis, don’t buy a generic system. Deal with somebody who can give you the right parameters and set the water where you want it with the natural mineral content and the proper pH in play.
Below is a recent review of our service regarding preventing pinhole leaks in copper plumbing in Irvine, CA from reoccurring. These folks did a lot of research on how to best handle their plumbing issues and that’s why they came to us.
“RICK, NICK, & the PURE ELEMENTS WATER company are a pleasure to work with.
My home had a pinhole leak about 1.5 years ago. We had the leak fixed, but have since been concerned about the high possibility of another pinhole leak occurring, especially since this is any issue for many of the homes in our area. For about 1.5 years now, my husband and I have been researching options, including PEX or the EPOXY lining. We even had several companies quote us for both PEX and EPOXY.
We know of several individuals that have repiped their home with PEX, however felt this option was too aggressive, since this would create multiple holes throughout our entire home. Furthermore, after researching the pro/cons of PEX and although certain companies did provide a good warranty, we felt that at this time PEX was definitely the most aggressive option, especially since we had a functioning copper pipe system at this time.
Another option we debated was EPOXY lining of the existing copper pipes. This was a more conservative option to PEX. However most of the companies that had provide us with quotes did not provide a warranty that stood behind their work — meaning if the epoxy failed and there was a leak — the best warranty we found was a company that would fix the leak at no charge, but collateral damage was not covered. Which to us meant that they were not confident that there would not be another pinhole leak after the EPOXY lining.
It seemed that both PEX and EPOXY were addressing the damage caused by chemicals in the water, mainly chloramine. BUT neither addressed the main cause: the water chemistry — the chemicals in the water itself that are causing the damage.
In search for a more conservative option to PEX, we actually found PURE ELEMENTS WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM. The website, the information I found online, and Rick the owner, helped me understand that their water filtration system actually addresses the main cause — the chemicals (mainly chloramine) that are causing the damage to the copper pipes, leading to the pinhole leaks.
I contacted Rick on the YELP app, and he responded right away, and I was able to speak with him on the phone that day for more than 1 hour — and this was on a weekend day (not a weekday!) Rick was extremely knowledgeable, informative, friendly, and attentive It was obvious that he had a lot of passion and experience about water.
After the conversation, Rick agreed to meet in person with my husband and I, and was even very accommodating with the meeting time. When he arrived to our house, he was on time and spent over 1.5 hours educating us. He helped us realize that his filtration system is NOT like all other filtration systems out there, because his filtration system is actually customized to address the type of water and chemicals coming into your home in your community.
After reviewing the pro/cons of all our options, my husband and I decided to move forward with the PURE ELEMENTS WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM.
On the day of installation, Nick from the company came to build us a customized set up for our home and for our custom built Pure Elements Water Filtration Tank. Nick was friendly, efficient, and his work was very clean.
Rick (the owner), Nick, and the entire Pure Elements Team have been nothing but helpful and accommodating.
We look forward to now having drinking water from each faucet, as well as removal of the chemicals from the water, that have been the source and cause of the pinhole leaks. When there is a problem, it only makes sense to address the cause first. We feel that installing the Pure Elements Water Filtration system is the most conservative and logical way to approach this widespread pinhole leak issue.
Thank you Pure Elements Team for your help and great customer service.”
Well, many of these people are being pushed down the standard path toward re-piping the home. They will be told to replace the pipes with PEX plastic tubing, which is still extremely controversial because it introduces foreign chemicals into the water. Many of these chemicals are carcinogenic.
Although the chemicals are below legal limits that does not mean much since legal limits have not been updated in over 20 years. https://www.epa.gov/sdwa. Just because a contaminant is below legal limits does not mean it is necessarily safe. We often find out later that it is not but by then the damage is already done.
We are also not a big fan of PEX plastic pipe because it has about half the life of copper materials. It might only last 25 to 50 years. It is surprising how fast 25 years can go by. Copper can easily last 50 to 70 years. Both will last longer if you change the water chemistry going into them so they don’t break down. That is what our product is all about.
Recently the PEX industry has seen a dramatic increase in the pricing, so that used to be the best price choice but it is no longer.
Another approach is to line pipes with epoxy linings, which are resin. Again this introduces chemicals into the water creating potential for health issues. And there are a host of other issues with epoxy. It is best used for sewer lines.
The best solution is to fix the water chemistry and stop the attack on the existing copper pipes. When you do this you can maintain your copper pipes in place without the cost or disruption of re-piping. Get the initial pinhole leak fixed and then get our system installed to clean the water correctly and protect the pipes. You can avoid controversial materials like PEX plastic piping and in addition to that you can enjoy exceptional water quality for bathing and cooking and drinking and all your household water needs.
Check us out for that. We’re about half the cost of what it takes today to re-pipe a standard home in the traditional plastic piping you.
Hi I’m Rick Allen and I own Pure Elements Water in Newport Beach. We have been providing custom whole house water filtration and salt free water conditioning systems for over four decades.
I wanted to take a brief moment and list the six goals that we have with our systems.
First, we want to provide chemical free bathing and showering. That is the single greatest and most important thing for health in your home because the carcinogenic chemicals are largely gaseous. So they’re in the steam. We take them in through our pores and in directly through our lungs.
Drinking water from every faucet. We are going to provide water that has the chemicals removed, heavy metals addressed. It’s got the natural mineral content left in place including the calcium. And it is slightly alkaline in ph.
Third is dealing with hard water issues. We’re going to address those without the use of a softener and without any salt in an environmentally sound approach. That means no slippery feeling or no slimy aspects. None of that, “I can’t get the shampoo out of my hair,” or any of those things.
The fourth thing is very important if you have copper pipes. We are going to prevent pinhole leaks going forward. Regardless of how many leaks you may have had in the past, we can do this without a requirement for you to re-pipe the house or to use epoxy linings. And at a savings of thousands of dollars.
The fifth thing is if you have a swimming pool or a spa we’re going to protect the equipment the heater the pumps we’re going to protect the salt cell. And we’re going to reduce staining at the water line and at the water features. We’ll create for you better water that’s easier for your pool person to maintain.
And last but not least, we’re going to benefit your irrigation by allowing your plant life to thrive with less water and less fertilizer while we protect the entire infrastructure of the irrigation system from hard water issues.
We would really appreciate the opportunity to design a system for you. We are connected to healthcare and longevity people as well as to the building trades. We can be reached at area (949) 644 1800 or online . Thank you very much for listening.
Rick, what is Pure Elements Water during these trying times to help people?
Well, now that we are all hunkered down in our homes, there has never been a more important time to take control of the water quality throughout the home.
That includes water we are bathing and showering in. And water that we are drinking and cooking with as well as for making ice. And don’t forget the water for our pets. Outdoors we need to protect our water features and our plants too.
So we are helping people address those issues in a not touch manner – following all social distancing protocols, PPE, masking, gloves and sanitizing.
We are doing a lot of phone orders, which is normal for us because we’ve designed and ship systems all across the country for a number of years.
