Open Tap, Drink Poison – Let’s Fix It
In 2022, more than 75 million Americans drank poisoned water. Annually, more than 1,000 US municipal water systems fail to meet the requirements of the EPA Safe Drinking Water Act. We can no longer open our tap and feel safe about the water we drink. This book, the first of its kind, will help readers develop the required skills to assure that the water they drink will always be safe.

As a freight hauler for heavy industry we ran into grease and oil disposal regulations with our wash-water. Tom designed a portable centrifuge/filtration unit that enabled us to reuse a substantial amount of the wash-water and separate the oil and grease for sale to a reclaimer. His innovation had a major impact on our bottom line.

I have had the pleasure of working with Tom on several ion exchange projects and his knowledge of water technology and chemistry has always provided our company with good insight. I will call on Tom again as new separation applications arise.

When our plant water softener went down, Tom responded with emergency, portable exchange services before his competition even returned my phone calls. He provided support on a Saturday, and repaired our aging system to get it back running again. His customer care performance is stellar.
