LESLIE: Alright, we’ve got Jim in New Jersey who’s dealing with some hard water issues. Jim, what can we do for you?
JIM: Oh, hi. We live in Northern New Jersey and our water is supplied by town wells.
JIM: And we notice – we have a lawn sprinkler system and we notice we’re getting some white etching on the glass and, as well, we have a hot tub spa that every time we get it tested when we refill it we get high alkalinity. And we hear you speak of the EasyWater
system and wonder if the application might be good for us.
TOM: Yeah, I think it might be. I would give the EasyWater folks a call because they’re very, very knowledgeable about what the system works well for and what it doesn’t work well for. I installed one. I was very happy with the results. I especially like that it was very easy to install because …
LESLIE: Mm-hmm, it’s one that you can do yourself.
TOM: Yeah, because, essentially, you plug the unit in near the main water line and then you wrap an electrical wire around the main water line that creates the electronic field that sort of changes the polarity of the minerals in the water and that stops them from sticking together.
JIM: Yeah, because we notice we get like some deposits on the showerhead.
TOM: Right, and that’s designed to stop all that. So I would give them a call, though, and talk specifically about it. They’re very, very knowledgeable and if you tell them exactly what the water results are they can tell you what the unit can and can’t do. But if it’ll work, it’s going to be a lot less expensive than putting in a plumbing-based system.
JIM: Terrific. Tom and Leslie, thank you very much.
TOM: You’re very welcome.
LESLIE: (overlapping voices) Oh, our pleasure.
TOM: Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
