A new company based in Spanish Fork is offering innovative technology to homeowners and renters that improves their water without salt or chemicals.

r

Bill Grubbs is chief executive officer of The New Water Company, a subsidiary of Enhanced Life Water Solutions. A Spanish Fork resident, Grubbs set up his manufacturing facility in the city last October and has now started offering the technology to residential customers in Utah.

r

“There is nobody that has anything like this,” Grubbs said.

r

About 10 years ago, inventor Gary Wilson had a desire to create a water treatment technology that would replace salt-based water softeners. He began experimenting with various products on the market and eventually developed what is now referred to as an electron infusion water system.

r

This device wraps around a water pipe and creates an electric field, flooding the water with electrons. Molecules in the water are activated and stabilized, preventing minerals from clumping together, which reduces scale while also raising the pH of the water. This causes the water to become alkaline, or non-acidic.

r

The system can work on any size of pipe, but it is attached to the main pipe bringing water into the home, ensuring that all the home’s water is treated before being used. The device simply needs to be plugged into a regular power outlet.

r

Wilson began selling his system to residential clients on a limited basis. In 2010, he filed a patent on his invention and began offering it commercially. Enhanced Life Water Solutions now has a variety of clients using its technology including corporations with large evaporative coolers, hotels, cities and major food processing companies.

r

When Grubbs encountered the technology, he was intrigued. He began visiting with customers that used it and asking about their experiences, and their responses indicated the technology was revolutionary and unprecedented.

r

“Every single person that I talked to gave me the same answer, that this is amazing technology,” Grubbs said.

r

In July of 2015, Grubbs purchased the technology from Wilson, keeping Wilson on as a full-time consultant so he could continue his research and development. While Enhanced Life Water Solutions continues to serve its commercial clients, Grubbs created The New Water Company to handle residential sales.

r

While Wilson had installed his proprietary water system in homes previously, it was only as people heard about it from others. With his manufacturing facility up and running, Grubbs is now ready to promote and make the technology available to residential customers for the first time.

r

One of the main benefits of having one of the systems in a home is better-tasting alkaline water, Grubbs said. However, the system also keeps minerals from attaching to items such as pipes and faucets, which increases the life of home appliances, especially hot water heaters, dishwashers, and washing machines. While not all scale can be eliminated with any water treatment system, the scale that does appear is easily wiped away, he said.

r

“One of the major reasons you want a water softener of some kind is to protect your investment in your home,” Grubbs said.

r

A smaller amount of soap, shampoo and cleaning products is needed with the treated water as well, and because the mineral molecules are stabilized, they are more easily absorbed by the body, he said.

r

“The water’s going to taste great and you’re going to better hydrate with it. You’re also going to cut down on your shampoos, conditioners, laundry detergent, dishwasher soap and cleaning products by up to 75 percent, all of your detergents are going to be cut down because you don’t need as much to do the same thing,” he said.

r

One unique aspect of the system is its portability, meaning that home owners and renters can invest in a system and then take it with them when they move. Also, when a system is purchased, the company donates $30 to a water charity that assists people in areas of the world where it is difficult to obtain clean water.
