Ask The Expert: Making money the object
01/01/2002 
 
Question: Have you heard of the National Laboratories & Water Systems Manufacturing Company? They have been canvassing our neighborhood and are trying to sell us a very expensive water conditioning and purification system. The salesman claims that their system will clean out our 40-year old plumbing system and save us the cost of ever having to replace it.

Answer: We have never heard of National Laboratories & Water Systems Manufacturing Co., but the claims that you quote are very typical of companies either selling technologies that are suspect in terms of performance, or selling legitimate technologies at extremely high prices. Claims of a water treatment technology that will "clean out your 40-year-old plumbing system," are probably not true. I would recommend that you contact the Water Quality Association at (630) 505-0160, and request a list of their members in your area. It also has a "Member Finder" function at its website: www.wqa.org. This is the best source of legitimate water conditioners/purifiers. Good luck.
