Fitz: 8:38. Okay, let’s do this again. Mr. Waterman, Rick from Crystal Clear Water. Good morning.
Rick: Good morning, Fitz. How are you this morning?
Fitz: I’m like everyone else. We’re doing what we’re supposed to do and yet trying to keep positive and in the zone, and yet we cannot wait to turn the page on this chapter, that’s for sure.
Rick: Well, I sure hear you on that one.
Fitz: In this day and age, Rick, we’re talking about water and talking about, I think, the silver lining in this is that people are gonna be hopefully paying more attention to their health, you know, and trying to take off a few pounds because, you know, preexisting conditions has not been a good thing for those who have gotten this COVID-19, and obesity and just all the things that people have been doing, not eating right and not paying attention to their diet and overindulging and everything and not exercising. I think your product falls into that. Trying to keep us clean, healthy, and keeping our insides clean with that crystal clear water so that we’re not ingesting that chlorine and chromium-6 and pharmaceuticals that has been proven to be in our drinking water and all that fun stuff.
Rick: Yeah, I think you’re right about that. I think there is gonna be a resurgence in focus on health, and this pandemic has made us take a look at where we are, each one of us, where we are physically. And in some cases, it’s not benefiting to be looking at the same four walls, you know, and taking out that takeout food and we want to keep doing that, though, because we have to support our brothers in the restaurant business.
Fitz: No doubt.
Rick: So, yeah, but you certainly can take control of the health in terms of the water quality in your home, and that definitely does fit into the package moving forward here because whole house filtration is extremely valuable and getting the chemicals and things out of the bath and shower water, because, as we’ve talked about before, that’s the greatest area of exposure that you have to the carcinogenic things that are in the water. And you know, our guys at the water districts do a good job of meeting the federal standards, but you still have a bunch of things in there that we shouldn’t need to be exposed to. And then on the drinking waterfront, of course, health-related supplies and bottled water is in and out of shortage, short supply in the grocery stores, and we want to be moving the water around.
Fitz: And not to mention how expensive bottled water is, Rick.
Rick: Yeah. And just the physical act of moving water from the shelf to your house. And there’s a whole second layer of issues there with concerns about chemicals leaching into the water from the plastic. And especially in the Valley when as the temperatures get warmer, as those temperatures increase, that makes that a greater problem for us.
Fitz: For the next week we’re gonna be in triple digits. Here, we’re gonna hit like 101 today. So a lot of those pallets of water, when they’re getting delivered to the store, sit outside in the sun or the folks delivering put it back on the back gate and they can only take, you know, one-off at a time or whatever. And man, that is certainly a recipe for that plastic leaching into the water. People don’t realize that.
Rick: Yeah, it’s really a concern. I mean, in dealing with a lot of my healthcare and longevity people, I do have a very top-rated Orange County nutritionist who has a study out of Europe. It’s pretty old, maybe 10 or 15 years old now. And they studied the whole deal there and there. They came up with the fact or their result was that drinking water from the plastic bottles is equivalent to drinking liquid estrogen. And her whole concept in terms of Orange County being one of the areas with highest female cancers was that the affluence, you know, everybody carrying around a bottle of designer bottled water is a contributing factor to that. I’m not sure if that’s true or not, but I do hold some belief that it is.
Fitz: I’ve heard that before. That’s not surprising. So Rick, we encourage everyone to get in touch with you more important now if you’ve been on the fence and not to mention the fact that you’re giving 25% off now on these systems.
Rick: Yeah, we’re trying to help, you know, where we can, and we’ve actually been quite busy because people get a chance now to sit down and reflect and say, “Hey, we have some of those things, some of those boxes we want to check for the home,” and doing whole house filtration and salt-free water conditioning should definitely be one of those boxes.
Fitz: And I’m sure when you or your representative comes out to a home, if someone’s interested, obviously you do all the correct social distancing and everything that’s being asked of us all now.
Rick: One hundred percent. In fact, we actually are doing the majority of business that we are doing right now is actually what I would call a phone order, where we actually can design and do the whole thing in terms of going on a water system for somebody without an actual personal visit to the home.
Fitz: That’s awesome.
Rick: And in most cases, we can actually do the installation physically and not go anywhere further than the garage. So that’s been really good in terms of ways to deal with this and make sure we’re 110% compliant with what we’re being told to do.
Fitz: Sure. And everyone has a different sized home, different needs. You can custom design a system. We encourage everyone to go to your parent company website and check it out, pureelementswater.com, and then give you a call.
