Thinking the man or something like this, putting a cartridge filter systems on their drinking phones for lead removal. Whole school systems are doing that. Either that or they’re ripping the waterfowl is out of the hallways and saying we don’t want the liability, so we’re just going to pull that out all together. Okay. So school systems, hospitals, clinics, um, making sure that those products are meeting those standards. Homeowners are kind of, it’s up to us in order to say to go out and promote the products and if it’s important to be upfront and say yes, we have products that meet these NSF standards, what cartridges this flow, blood flow plus benefits still the same amount of carbon filtration. So I get all the taste and odor removal

Speaker 1:                           00:51

at the same levels because it’s pulverized carbon, higher flow and a very, very fine filter level. Half Micron, I can put it into a system and get cyst removal. A certification for that. This filter becomes a terrific filter for things like people who are drawing water from surface waters, lakes, lake homes, cottages, things like that because that’s. Those typically are places where they’re getting the water from the surface supply that’s got those contaminants in it, so this has been very popular filter for places like that and why is it popular also in comparison to putting in something like this on the side of the house for something that I might be using months out of the year. Now I can address an issue like high levels of filtration, high quality water and I can put in a cartridge filter versus putting in a whole operating system like this. I can get. I can also put in a size I can order a size of flow plus that will supply water for the whole home. What was the flow rate that I quoted for that 20 inch big blue flow plus? Was it 25 gallons per 25 gallons per minute.

Speaker 1:                           02:12

20 five gallon permit. Well I can put one of those on the side of the house and have plenty of flow and get really, really high quality water for the whole home. Chlorine, removable cyst removal, all of that. The sense since the downturn, right? Two thousand seven, 2008. I’m single family home starts have never reached back up to that level that they were before that and obviously before that was a bunch of speculation. It was people just driving up home is just because because they thought, well we’ll be able to sell it, give me the money, give banks are giving money away like crazy. So people buy these homes, single family homes starts having gotten back up to that level that they were before that, but what has been at record levels for the last three to five years has been multiple, multiple multifamily homes, so condos, apartments, all of these places where you’re seeing. They just threw something up near the manufacturing plant, the corners of Brookfield, and it’s all a walking plaza with shopping with a whole bunch of condos on top. So it’s like a prefab community and it was all multifamily homes. Well, if I’m throwing condos up on top of buildings, I don’t have a lot of room to put Donavon tank stuff.

Speaker 1:                           03:31

As far as my filter systems cartridge filtration becomes a really, really nice whole home kind of application for places where you don’t meet the last space and you can still supply water for the entire space and it’s cost effective as an install. Twenty $500 to install, seven $800 to install

Speaker 2:                           03:53


Speaker 1:                           03:54

questions, flow rate through big blue, 20 inch. People’s housing, they’ll filter with no filter. Depends on the. Depends on the inlet outlet connection size on it. Now, are you talking peak flow rate? Are you talking continuous flow, right? Big. I don’t know the answer to that exactly. I tell you it’s going to be more than 25 gallons a minute. You’re saying that you can pull it up here. Okay.

Speaker 1:                           04:24

I’m not saying. I’m not saying that you’re going to want to jam 25 gallons per minute through that cartridge. What I’m saying is that it has the capability in comparison to Max flow rates with carbon block, with an extruded carbon black. It has a lot better flow characteristics, so you’re going to get a lot less pressure dropped to Jay’s point and it’s more in the commercial world class, so a five as well. You guys handle pipe, right? Pvc Pipe, copper pipe. I can. I can put in 100 feet of one inch copper and put a pop on the end and run the pump head pressure all the way up and as I go up through the pressure range, I can increase the flow coming out of the end of that 100 feet of pipe at 25 at a one inch piece of pipe. I could probably throw 60, 70, 80 gallons per minute out of that pipe once they get up to about 100 PSI.

Speaker 1:                           05:22

Head pressure. Is that fair to say? I mean that water’s going to be shooting across the across the complex here, but I can really flow a lot of water through it. Here’s the thing, he ended up pipe is going to be all over the place because as I’m running water through that pipe, it’s going to be creating cavitation and vibration and a lot of turbulence in the pipe, so I wouldn’t want to run because at 25 gallons per minute through one inch pipe, I’m still going to be creating vibration and all of those things. So keep in mind, just because I’m capable of flowing 25 gallons per minute through that cartridge doesn’t mean that the whole system is something I would want. Right. So we’ve talked about filters, we talked about sediment filtration, particulate filtration, taking things out of the water. Where do, where does particularly a particularly contamination most often occur in surface water, surface water.

Speaker 1:                           06:15

We talked about chemical filtration, so we’ve talked about actually taking things out of the water that are part of the water tds stands for what? Totally dissolved solids. That’s totally what does [inaudible] stand for? Parts per million parts per million ppm. So if I, if I’m looking at specifications and or if I’m looking at a water report, water tests from the municipality and it says ppm on it, what is peep? Okay. That is a measurement of parts, but it’s a ratio. There’s also a measurement of like weight over volume. Wait over volume, right? You want a certain. How much of this this is in this volume of water? Ppm is equivalent to what? Metric? Equivalent. Sorry, that was redundant. Come back. I can do better than that. PPM is equal to what? Here’s the metric system. Whoever thought of the metric system that they were sharp, they were on their game. They had it together. I didn’t say I wanted to use it. I said I want to use the JV. I just thought it was pretty cool. Alright. So a liter of water by understands how much of leaders. That’s probably what half liter a liter of water. Everybody understand kind of how much, how big a leader is a leader of fresh water weighs about. Well, he’s a million milligrams,

Speaker 1:                           07:48

weighs a million milligrams. That’s a thousand grams. The metric system, right? It’s all in you asking. It’s all intense. It’s amazing. So there’s a liter of water and it weighs about a million years milligrams. Okay, so there’s a million parts there. There’s a million parts vice broke that water up into a million parts. Each one of those parts would wait. What? One? One, one, one milligram. So parts per million is also expressed in milligrams per liter. So when you see it on a water test, because you’re going to see those, you’re going to see reports from our linkedin, Plano Burleson, whatever. You’re going to see water reports and they’re going to have the measurements of contaminants and a lot of that stuff’s going to be in milligrams per liter. Okay? That’s what that means. That’s what the equivalent is. So if you broke that leader up into a million parts, how much of those million parts is calcium or magnesium or sulfates or nitrates or your range.
