Saving Water Through Technology.
The Herman Group
Wednesday, 8th April 2009
 

Sometimes, due to external circumstances, a product that has been around for a long time becomes economically and socially viable seemingly overnight.

No one would argue that water shortages plague many areas of the globe and especially throughout many regions of the southeastern United States.

Though the product Bonaqua? (now from Joseph Charles, Inc.) has been around for more than 20 years, it was never marketed appropriately, in part because water was in relatively plentiful supply.

This leading-edge process eliminates the need for chemicals, often used to remove the minerals and other impurities that cause scale and corrosion in water pipes. Even more impressive is that in most cases, the product can be installed in a day and requires no external power source.

Already installed selectively around the world, this technology makes being environmentally responsible not only economically feasible, but actually profitable. When Meredith College in Raleigh, North Carolina installed the system, the college saved USD$36,000 in chemicals and 6.1 Million gallons of water (almost USD$50,000).

Moreover, Meredith realized increased efficiency of its equipment and the lengthening of asset life. The breakeven on Meredith's investment came at a remarkable seven and a half months.

The Bonaqua process uses a magnetic wrap-around system that capitalizes on the laws of physics. Bon Aqua's magnetic strength readily penetrates iron/copper pipes with a dense enough magnetic field to cause an electric current to be generated in the water.

This electric current creates a Faraday generator, with the flowing water being the armature, the steel pipe being the field coil, and the ground supplying the constant flow of electrons through the pipe and into the water. For more, visit bonaqua.com.
 
The patented Bonaqua water treatment system is a permanent and totally passive non-chemical method of water treatment that requires a minimum amount of monitoring, no outside power source, in which very little water is wasted. Plus, it is absolutely non-polluting.
 
Bonaqua is a shining example of the green technologies that will become more and more important in years to come. It is a win-win-win system that features significant energy savings, environmental compliance, increased production, and a
better profit picture.
