25 Tests and Observations that Show the Benefits of Structured Water<br /><br />At Natural Action Technologies, Inc., we have had the pleasure to see, hear, and feel how structured water is changing lives and the world for the better. This is not just from our tests and validation. We have received feedback from hundreds of satisfied, sometimes amazed, believers and disbelievers in the Natural Action structuring units.<br /><br />We thought it interesting to list as many benefits of structured water and structured water units as possible from our own research and that of others.<br /><br />Note that many of these are substantiated consistently, others only a few times, or maybe just once. In this way, the distributors and customers can begin to prove to themselves how structured water units can change the liquid medium<br />and more.<br /><br />Here is a first offering of 25 tests and observations that you can do to share in the fun and adventure of structured water units from Natural Action Technologies. Enjoy!<br /><br />1 - Leaf Longevity Test - This test requires two plants of the same species. Water one plant with structured water. Water the other with non- structured tap water. Continue this for 30 days. Pluck two leaves of the plants and set aside for observation. Compare the leaves each day for flexibility and dryness. The leaves of our non-structured “test” vines started turning to parchment in 4 days. It was day 9 before the structured leaves started becoming dry and showing signs of any cracking. This demonstrates beautifully how structured water improves hydration and preserves life. What do you find?<br /><br />2 - Hard Water Soap Test - This is a good test for people living in hard water areas. Find two clean quart jars with lids. Place one cup of the regular tap water in one jar and one cup of the “structured” tap water in the other. Place a teaspoon of soap in each jar. Place the lid back on and then shake each jar. The structured water will deliver an obviously greater amount of soap upon shaking, whereas before there was very little or none. How’s it shaking with your hard water?<br /><br />3 - Rose Growing Challenge – Water your roses daily with the structured water from one NAT house unit. Notice how they grow. Are they bigger, healthier, and more fragrant than before? For a real energy blast, try four house units inline. After just two months’ time, we’ve watched rose leaders grow from less than 9 feet tall to heights of 11’ with the daily application of water from 4 inline house units. The flowers went from 6 feet up to the 8 foot level. The highly energetic water from multiple inline units enhances the growing capabilities of any plant or animal.<br /><br />4 - Swimming Pool Water Test – This is a very interesting test with a structured water unit. Place water from a chlorinated swimming pool in a quart jar. Hold the water to your chest and muscle test the strength of a strong arm. (You don’t have to be skilled in muscle testing to do this one.) Follow these instructions:<br />Test the person’s relative baseline strength. Simply hold an arm straight out in front of a person. Keep the straight arm (elbow straight, wrist relaxed) at a 90 degree angle to the chest. Now, check their baseline strength. Have the person being tested slowly raise their arm up into the palm of your hand for a couple of seconds to see and feel their strength. Now, begin to SLOWLY press down and feel their strength. For more fun, have others witness. In the baseline, it will be strong or strong enough.<br /><br />Now repeat the exact same test. This time have the person hold the jar to their chest under their chin and maybe even inhale a little smell of the water.<br /><br />(Do not inhale to deep.) This time when you perform the same muscle test, what happens? Did it go weak? It will consistently go from the previously strong test to weak because of the chlorine toxins in the pool water weakening the body.<br /><br />Now, structure the same sample into a similar jar and hold it against your chest again. Also, inhale the smell of the water. Still smell the same? Now, as you perform the same exact strength test as the previous two tests, what did you notice? Did your arm go weak or stay strong this time? We have found the arm goes back to strength consistently because the structuring device has neutralized the toxins in the water sample and created an energetic change in the water.<br />The “structuring” does not allow the bodies’ energetics to go weak.<br /><br />5 - The Coffee Challenge – Every coffee drinker knows how great his or her coffee is! Do a side-by-side comparison of the coffee you drink everyday versus your coffee “structured”. What do your tongue and other senses tell you? Notice how the structured coffee has a smoother, cleaner taste? We have had coffee drinking fans buy the structured water unit after tasting the improved, cleaner flavor to their own bean in one cup of coffee! For extra credit, do the same muscle test before and after structuring as you did in #4 above.<br /><br />6 - Dissolving Calcium Test - Does structured water dissolve calcium deposits on sprinkler heads and fountains? Use of structured units on calcified sprinklers and fountains showed the continued removal of calcium buildup to the point where there was no more need for cleaning or replacement of the sprinkler heads.<br />With the application of a structured water unit, how are your misters doing after one or two months?<br /><br />7 - Window Streak Test (Tap vs. Structured Water) – Spray your windows with both kinds of water. Which ones develop spots from leftover calcium drops?<br /><br />The ability of structured water to put calcium into solution results in less spotting on the glass. This test varies depending on how much structuring power and the type of water you are using. The more structuring to the water, the better the effect.<br /><br />8 - Three Day Tomato Plant Test – Rain down structured water over your tomato plants daily for three days. Is there an explosion of growth and blooms in your tomato plants?<br /><br />9 - Asthma Improvement – What happens when a person with asthma drinks two cups of structured water in 15 minutes? Upon drinking just one glass of structured water, an elderly gentleman, with raspy breathing, noticed his breathing become easier and less strained. His raspy inhale sounded quite a bit smoother too.<br />His friends in the room noticed it too, from 8 to 10 feet away.<br /><br />10 - Beer Head Expansion - Does the “head” on your beer expand enormously upon structuring? What’s up with this increase when beer is structured? Is this due to the overall increase in energy and oxygenation? Beer drinkers will consistently enjoy this one! Only structure a couple ounces if you like your beer with carbonation. Otherwise the beer will go flat. Which begs this question, if structuring brings to the liquid what is good for life, AND, it removes carbonation…Hmmm, Is carbonation good for life?<br /><br />11 - Brix Test – This requires the tester to have a refractometer available. These can be purchased online for about $35.00. The refractometer is a handheld device that shows sugar and nutritional content of a fruit through a numbered scale inside an optical viewer in the shape of a monocular. Examine your growing fruit crop with a refractometer. Here’s how: Squeeze the juice from the fruit onto the glass of the refractometer and cover the drops with the lid. What number is reading in the eyepiece at the blue and white line? This is your Brix reading. Measure the current Brix reading on a number of growing fruit. Now, water the plant with structured water and in three days take another Brix reading. What did you find?<br />Compare your numbers with Brix charts for the fruit you are reading. Is it Poor, Average, Good, or Excellent?<br />We’ve heard from growers whose Brix readings jumped upwards a couple numbers in just two to three days of structured water! This has incredible significance for the world of human and animal nutrition when the Brix tests are high! A high Brix reading is a blessing for mankind. Simply put, the higher the Brix, the greater the nutrition, the healthier the human.<br /><br />12 - Human Kidney Factor – As a person drinks structured water, what happens to their kidneys, their rate of urination, and urination state in general? What do you notice as you feel the water system in your body responding to this new kind of water? Is this alone a new experience for everyone trying structured water?<br /><br />13 - Cow Milk Production Observations - Water your dairy herd with structured water. What do you find in the following list?<br />• Infection states cleared out?<br />• Increased milk production?<br />• Increased bio-availability of nutrients?<br />• Increased feed efficiency?<br />• Increased daily weight gain?<br />• Improved cow and calf health?<br />• Increased hydration?<br />• Increased tolerances to temperature extremes?<br />• Reduced birthing complications?<br />• Increased calf livability?<br />We have already heard from owners of herds eliminating the E. coli in their milk with the simple application of structured water.<br /><br />14 - Lawn Mower on Overdrive?<br />Structured Water vs. RO/Tap Water on the Lawn - Which lawns display greater growth and greener grass? … Structured watered or non-structured? Do you use less or no fertilizer? We regularly see how green the lawn becomes when structured water is added to the yard, often while the lawn is being watered. Compare your structured watered lawn to another part of your yard watered with tap water? Is there a difference? Do you have to push or ride your lawnmower more frequently? This is one downside we have found to structured water!<br /><br />15 - Microwave Water Test – Microwaved water causes one to test weak using a muscle test just like the previous #4 Chlorine test, suggesting it is toxic to<br />human life.<br />Can you see and feel the change when you perform this muscle test with microwaved water?<br />It also shows a strange nucleus on a Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) camera, much different than structured water before it is put in the microwave. When one structures the water, it will cause one to regain their muscle test strength,
15 #EssentialGadgets for Your #Weekend on the #Water<br /><br />It's time to take inventory of your weekend water essentials.<br /><br />While neon floaties and a Rambo-esque Super Soaker might have cut it in your teenage years, you as an adult need a more cutting-edge arsenal of water tech.<br /><br />High-tech gadgets aren't limited to traditional water activities such as fishing or boating, though. Whether you're a kiteboarder, wakeboarder or recreational beachgoer, there are a slew of gadgets to help you get the most out of your aquatic enterprise.<br /><br />Here are 15 grown-up toys to jumpstart your next #weekendonthewater.<br /><br />1. Bring a waterproof tablet to the beach<br /><br />For years, humans have dreamed of enjoying their favorite gadgets beachside, maybe even while in the water. Unfortunately, the only factor undercutting this dream is our trenchant fear of submerging our device in water. A first world problem? You betcha, but a quandary nonetheless. What if, however, there was a way to binge-watch Dora the Explorer in the tide pool?<br /><br />The solution is a waterproof tablet, like Sony’s Xperia Z2 tablet, which is light, sleek and waterproof for up to 30 minutes in fresh water. Take it with you to the ocean, lake or river — just keep it away from the pool and remember to keep all of its ports and slots shut.<br /><br />2. Put on a waterproof radio helmet for better water sport communication<br />Water sport enthusiasts know all too well that a boat engine's whirr can drown out important instructions from instructors or teammates. While you can try to work around the problem by bringing a radio headset into the water with you, in the past, such gadgets haven't been waterproof.<br /><br />Thanks to technological advancements, that's changing.<br /><br />Headzone’s hand-built Jump Helmet contains a waterproof receiver and gives users access to 16 ultra high frequency channels. With a two-mile zone, you can communicate with your partner who might be farther downstream, which means no more barking indiscernible directions over a boat’s engine or flashing mysterious gestures.<br /><br />3. Turn your smartphone into a data-filled dive computer<br /><br />Whether you’re a hobbyist diver or a pro, it always behooves you to have the best tech at your disposal. While in the past that meant shelling out big bucks for a slew of devices, now you can use the iGills SE-35 Smart Diving System as both a waterproof case for your smartphone and a high-tech dive computer.<br /><br />The system’s polycarbonate case protects your iPhone up to depths of 130 feet while still allowing you to use the computer via six buttons on the outside of the case, next to depth and temperature sensors. All told, the computer system syncs to your phone and allows you to access and log data (like ascent rate, nitrogen loading and low time) underneath the surface. iGills also has a camera port on the outside of the case for mid-dive photos and videos.<br /><br />4. Grill the afternoon away on a specially engineered barbecue boat<br />You’ve hit the high seas and reeled in some fantastic flounder. Suddenly, though, hunger hits, and you don’t want to wait until you’re back on land to cook your catch. While you can always take out the Foreman and grill on the spot, you'd prefer to savor the taste of your fare with a full barbecue experience.<br /><br />For that, you need a fully equipped grill boat, like the Barbecue Dining Boat, which, at almost 12 feet in diameter, can hold up to 10 people. The trolling boat has 24-inch steel charcoal grill and a 30-watt electric motor capable of eight hours of continuous BBQ’ing. Has eight hours of barbecue ever been a bad thing?<br /><br />5. Use a GoPro to record your kiteboarding spree<br /><br />Though a relatively new sport, kiteboarding (also called kitesurfing) has exploded in popularity, gaining more than 60,000 new participants every year, according to the International Sailing Federation. While many of those new arrivals come from backgrounds in wakeboarding, paragliding, waterskiing and surfing, you don’t need to be an expert to kiteboard on a breezy summer day. In fact, kiteboarding classes are taught around the world, making it an easy activity to pick up. When you get comfortable on the board, strap on a GoPro Hero 3 with a head strap from the brand. You’ll be able to record videos while you whiz around the ocean at speeds exceeding 50 mph and leap more than 20 feet high on your board.<br /><br />6. Hit the waves on a motorized surfboard<br />If you’re a water sport junkie who can’t decide whether to surf or waterski, check out the Jetsurf Pro Race motorized surfboard. Weighing in at a svelte 30 pounds, the durable board (it's made out of carbon fiber and Kevlar) can easily be packed away for a trip and unsheathed when the time is right. Its two-stroke engine can register speeds of 35 miles per hour, so the Pro Race isn’t for dilettantes who want to dawdle in the high seas.<br /><br />7. Catch fish with an underwater camera<br /><br />Though you can be an experienced trawler and have great equipment (like an expensive fish finder), a lot of fishing is left up to chance, i.e., you're not sure what you’ve hooked or how to hook it until you've reeled it in.<br /><br />If you’re going to be doing stationary fishing off a dock or want to get a better feel for the aquatic life near your fishing hole, grab ahold of a FishEyes Rod and Reel. The device, fitted with a camera and an LED light, lets you peer beneath the water's surface. If you want to turn what you’ve learned into lunch, you can attach a lure or bait basket to the rod.<br /><br />8. Use a foldable solar panel to charge your fishing boat's motor<br />Bait? Check. Newfangled fancy rod? Got it. Solar panel? Wait, what?<br /><br />While solar power isn’t normally the first thing a weekend angler thinks to load onto his or her skiff, it can save a lot of power and cash in the long run. The Goal Zero Guardian foldable units are easy to store on a small boat and will continuously charge your trolling motor throughout your day on the pond. If you’re an avid fisherman, that means fewer trips to buy batteries and an end to paddling to shore.<br /><br />9. Walk on water in an inflatable ball<br /><br />You don’t need to be from Nazareth to walk on water. When swimming just isn’t doing it for you anymore, check out an inflatable water ball to traipse around the pool or lake. Just try to take breaks during periods of intense sunlight. Other than that, you’re free to test out your divinity.<br /><br />10. Play water sports and blast music at the same time with waterproof earphones<br />The sound of you swimming in the ocean doesn’t have to be the sound of screaming children or a boat motor. Try throwing on your own playlists — made possible by a waterproof device case and waterproof, noise-canceling headphones. The Kevlar design of Yurbuds allows you to control playlists and enjoy music at most non-diving depths.<br /><br />11. Affordably and seamlessly rent a boat for the day<br /><br />So you wanna rally the troops for a day of sailing the high seas, but you don’t have the skiff (or the funds) necessary to do so. We understand. Boats, after all, are extremely expensive to own and maintain. What if, however, there was a peer-to-peer service that let you seamlessly rent a boat for a day?<br /><br />Boatbound is just that — a service that allows boat owners to list their crafts for rent — similar to how Airbnb gives apartment and homeowners the opportunity to list an extra room or the full spread when they’re out of town. On Boatbound, you can captain the rented ship if you have adequate experience. Or, if you’re a novice sailor, you can rent a captain along with the boat. Either way, you get to spend a day on the water without losing your savings.<br /><br />12. Fight sea sickness with specially designed anti-motion sickness glasses<br />Being a seafarer isn’t the most natural fit for everyone. While there are few things more exhilarating than trawling the ocean, there are also many activities more desirable than vomiting and feeling seasick while doing so. An ingenious cure for that maritime malady does exist, though.<br /><br />XPAND Anti-Motion Sickness glasses use shuttering lenses to reduce the severity of motion sickness for car, boat and plane passengers. When the glasses are turned on, their electro-optimal system makes the lenses strobe, which creates gaps between what the person is seeing as they're jostled around. That quality minimizes the difference between perception and vestibular interpretation of movement (a.k.a. one's sense of balance) that causes motion sickness in some seafarers.<br /><br />13. Use your smartphone to plan the perfect beach trip and find nautical data<br />Think of BlooSee as a one-stop shop for nautical junkers — whether they love sailing, fishing, kitesurfing, boating or virtually any other aquatic activity. The platform — available on mobile — has institutional and crowdsourced boat routes, nautical charts, scores of weather data for surfers, information points like marinas for boaters and dive sites for scuba lovers and much more. For those interested in maritime history and conservation, BlooSee also houses information on sights like Roman aqueducts and environmental calamities, such as the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.<br /><br />14. Find the best fishing grounds with a state-of-the-art fish finder<br />Fishermen will go to great lengths to find the best catch. Today, there’s plenty of technology to help them meet that goal, much of it mobile. The FishHunter fish finder has a sonar pod that floats in the water and reports back to your connected device on the boat. The pod, capable of floating up to 80 feet away from the device (you might want to tether it so it doesn't stray), can track fish at depths up to 120 feet. Above water, it links with your smartphone app to tell you what the bottom of the lake is like and what fish are in the vicinity — information that can later be mapped to create hot spots and identify species.<br /><br />15. Snap incredible photos and swim safely using a dive mask with a built-in camera<br /><br />Though few places are more beautiful than a coral reef, dive cameras can be expensive, unsafe and unwieldy (it's tough lugging around a $1,000 device
AQUAVIT Swimming Pool Care & Maintenance<br /><br />Clear Cloudy Swimming Pool Water<br /><br />How to keep Clear Cloudy Swimming Pool Water :-<br />Test the swimming pool water for Combined Chlorine, pH, Alkalinity and Calcium Hardness. The two areas that are most likely to cause cloudy pool water are the pH and the Calcium Hardness.<br /><br />Swimming pool seasonal check list:-<br /> Completely backwash filter ( Backwash a DE Filter or Backwash a Sand Filter).<br /> Test water for Chlorine, pH and Alkalinity.<br /> Adjust pH and Alkalinity as needed.<br /> Add Chlorine to pool ( Daily Pool Operation).<br /> Vacuum pool floor and walls if needed.<br /> Shock pool and add Algaecide.<br /> Check and adjust water level as needed. Water should be half way up   skimmers.<br /><br />It is important that you continuously filter the pool water until the water is clear, and closely monitor your pool filter pressure.Backwash or clean the pool filter as needed
Nice, #subsurface can display my dive log<br /><br />(it's not very deep, just an equipment test in a swimming pool - I prefer to have a save environment before going with new stuff into wild water)

25 Tests and Observations that Show the Benefits of Structured Water<br /><br />At Natural Action Technologies, Inc., we have had the pleasure to see, hear, and feel how structured water is changing lives and the world for the better. This is not just from our tests and validation. We have received feedback from hundreds of satisfied, sometimes amazed, believers and disbelievers in the Natural Action structuring units.<br /><br />We thought it interesting to list as many benefits of structured water and structured water units as possible from our own research and that of others.<br /><br />Note that many of these are substantiated consistently, others only a few times, or maybe just once.

The structured water will deliver an obviously greater amount of soap upon shaking, whereas before there was very little or none. How’s it shaking with your hard water?<br /><br />3 - Rose Growing Challenge – Water your roses daily with the structured water from one NAT house unit. Notice how they grow. Are they bigger, healthier, and more fragrant than before? For a real energy blast, try four house units inline. After just two months’ time, we’ve watched rose leaders grow from less than 9 feet tall to heights of 11’ with the daily application of water from 4 inline house units. The flowers went from 6 feet up to the 8 foot level. The highly energetic water from multiple inline units enhances the growing capabilities of any plant or animal.<br /><br />4 - Swimming Pool Water Test – This is a very interesting test with a structured water unit. Place water from a chlorinated swimming pool in a quart jar. Hold the water to your chest and muscle test the strength of a strong arm. (You don’t have to be skilled in muscle testing to do this one.) Follow these instructions:<br />Test the person’s relative baseline strength. Simply hold an arm straight out in front of a person. Keep the straight arm (elbow straight, wrist relaxed) at a 90 degree angle to the chest. Now, check their baseline strength. Have the person being tested slowly raise their arm up into the palm of your hand for a couple of seconds to see and feel their strength. Now, begin to SLOWLY press down and feel their strength. For more fun, have others witness. In the baseline, it will be strong or strong enough.<br /><br />Now repeat the exact same test. This time have the person hold the jar to their chest under their chin and maybe even inhale a little smell of the water.<br /><br />(Do not inhale to deep.) This time when you perform the same muscle test, what happens? Did it go weak? It will consistently go from the previously strong test to weak because of the chlorine toxins in the pool water weakening the body.<br /><br />Now, structure the same sample into a similar jar and hold it against your chest again. Also, inhale the smell of the water. Still smell the same? Now, as you perform the same exact strength test as the previous two tests, what did you notice? Did your arm go weak or stay strong this time? We have found the arm goes back to strength consistently because the structuring device has neutralized the toxins in the water sample and created an energetic change in the water.<br />The “structuring” does not allow the bodies’ energetics to go weak.<br /><br />5 - The Coffee Challenge – Every coffee drinker knows how great his or her coffee is! Do a side-by-side comparison of the coffee you drink everyday versus your coffee “structured”. What do your tongue and other senses tell you? Notice how the structured coffee has a smoother, cleaner taste? We have had coffee drinking fans buy the structured water unit after tasting the improved, cleaner flavor to their own bean in one cup of coffee! For extra credit, do the same muscle test before and after structuring as you did in #4 above.<br /><br />6 - Dissolving Calcium Test - Does structured water dissolve calcium deposits on sprinkler heads and fountains? Use of structured units on calcified sprinklers and fountains showed the continued removal of calcium buildup to the point where there was no more need for cleaning or replacement of the sprinkler heads.<br />With the application of a structured water unit, how are your misters doing after one or two months?<br /><br />7 - Window Streak Test (Tap vs. Structured Water) – Spray your windows with both kinds of water. Which ones develop spots from leftover calcium drops?<br /><br />The ability of structured water to put calcium into solution results in less spotting on the glass. This test varies depending on how much structuring power and the type of water you are using. The more structuring to the water, the better the effect.<br /><br />8 - Three Day Tomato Plant Test – Rain down structured water over your tomato plants daily for three days. Is there an explosion of growth and blooms in your tomato plants?<br /><br />9 - Asthma Improvement – What happens when a person with asthma drinks two cups of structured water in 15 minutes? Upon drinking just one glass of structured water, an elderly gentleman, with raspy breathing, noticed his breathing become easier and less strained. His raspy inhale sounded quite a bit smoother too.<br />His friends in the room noticed it too, from 8 to 10 feet away.<br /><br />10 - Beer Head Expansion - Does the “head” on your beer expand enormously upon structuring? What’s up with this increase when beer is structured? Is this due to the overall increase in energy and oxygenation? Beer drinkers will consistently enjoy this one! Only structure a couple ounces if you like your beer with carbonation. Otherwise the beer will go flat. Which begs this question, if structuring brings to the liquid what is good for life, AND, it removes carbonation…Hmmm, Is carbonation good for life?<br /><br />11 - Brix Test – This requires the tester to have a refractometer available. These can be purchased online for about $35.00. The refractometer is a handheld device that shows sugar and nutritional content of a fruit through a numbered scale inside an optical viewer in the shape of a monocular. Examine your growing fruit crop with a refractometer. Here’s how: Squeeze the juice from the fruit onto the glass of the refractometer and cover the drops with the lid. What number is reading in the eyepiece at the blue and white line? This is your Brix reading. Measure the current Brix reading on a number of growing fruit. Now, water the plant with structured water and in three days take another Brix reading. What did you find?<br />Compare your numbers with Brix charts for the fruit you are reading. Is it Poor, Average, Good, or Excellent?<br />We’ve heard from growers whose Brix readings jumped upwards a couple numbers in just two to three days of structured water! This has incredible significance for the world of human and animal nutrition when the Brix tests are high! A high Brix reading is a blessing for mankind. Simply put, the higher the Brix, the greater the nutrition, the healthier the human.<br /><br />12 - Human Kidney Factor – As a person drinks structured water, what happens to their kidneys, their rate of urination, and urination state in general? What do you notice as you feel the water system in your body responding to this new kind of water? Is this alone a new experience for everyone trying structured water?<br /><br />13 - Cow Milk Production Observations - Water your dairy herd with structured water. What do you find in the following list?<br />• Infection states cleared out?<br />• Increased milk production?<br />• Increased bio-availability of nutrients?<br />• Increased feed efficiency?<br />• Increased daily weight gain?<br />• Improved cow and calf health?<br />• Increased hydration?<br />• Increased tolerances to temperature extremes?<br />• Reduced birthing complications?<br />• Increased calf livability?<br />We have already heard from owners of herds eliminating the E. coli in their milk with the simple application of structured water.<br /><br />14 - Lawn Mower on Overdrive?<br />Structured Water vs. RO/Tap Water on the Lawn - Which lawns display greater growth and greener grass? … Structured watered or non-structured? Do you use less or no fertilizer? We regularly see how green the lawn becomes when structured water is added to the yard, often while the lawn is being watered. Compare your structured watered lawn to another part of your yard watered with tap water? Is there a difference? Do you have to push or ride your lawnmower more frequently? This is one downside we have found to structured water!<br /><br />15 - Microwave Water Test – Microwaved water causes one to test weak using a muscle test just like the previous #4 Chlorine test, suggesting it is toxic to<br />human life.<br />Can you see and feel the change when you perform this muscle test with microwaved water?<br />It also shows a strange nucleus on a Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) camera, much different than structured water before it is put in the microwave. When one structures the water, it will cause one to regain their muscle test strength,

15 #EssentialGadgets for Your ...

15 #EssentialGadgets for Your #Weekend on the #Water<br /><br />It's time to take inventory of your weekend water essentials.<br /><br />While neon floaties and a Rambo-esque Super Soaker might have cut it in your teenage years, you as an adult need a more cutting-edge arsenal of water tech.<br /><br />High-tech gadgets aren't limited to traditional water activities such as fishing or boating, though. Whether you're a kiteboarder, wakeboarder or recreational beachgoer, there are a slew of gadgets to help you get the most out of your aquatic enterprise.<br /><br />Here are 15 grown-up toys to jumpstart your next #weekendonthewater.<br /><br />1. Bring a waterproof tablet to the beach<br /><br />For years, humans have dreamed of enjoying their favorite gadgets beachside, maybe even while in the water. Unfortunately, the only factor undercutting this dream is our trenchant fear of submerging our device in water. A first world problem? You betcha, but a quandary nonetheless. What if, however, there was a way to binge-watch Dora the Explorer in the tide pool?<br /><br />The solution is a waterproof tablet, like Sony’s Xperia Z2 tablet, which is light, sleek and waterproof for up to 30 minutes in fresh water. Take it with you to the ocean, lake or river — just keep it away from the pool and remember to keep all of its ports and slots shut.<br /><br />2. Put on a waterproof radio helmet for better water sport communication<br />Water sport enthusiasts know all too well that a boat engine's whirr can drown out important instructions from instructors or teammates. While you can try to work around the problem by bringing a radio headset into the water with you, in the past, such gadgets haven't been waterproof.<br /><br />Thanks to technological advancements, that's changing.<br /><br />Headzone’s hand-built Jump Helmet contains a waterproof receiver and gives users access to 16 ultra high frequency channels. With a two-mile zone, you can communicate with your partner who might be farther downstream, which means no more barking indiscernible directions over a boat’s engine or flashing mysterious gestures.<br /><br />3. Turn your smartphone into a data-filled dive computer<br /><br />Whether you’re a hobbyist diver or a pro, it always behooves you to have the best tech at your disposal. While in the past that meant shelling out big bucks for a slew of devices, now you can use the iGills SE-35 Smart Diving System as both a waterproof case for your smartphone and a high-tech dive computer.<br /><br />The system’s polycarbonate case protects your iPhone up to depths of 130 feet while still allowing you to use the computer via six buttons on the outside of the case, next to depth and temperature sensors. All told, the computer system syncs to your phone and allows you to access and log data (like ascent rate, nitrogen loading and low time) underneath the surface. iGills also has a camera port on the outside of the case for mid-dive photos and videos.<br /><br />4. Grill the afternoon away on a specially engineered barbecue boat<br />You’ve hit the high seas and reeled in some fantastic flounder. Suddenly, though, hunger hits, and you don’t want to wait until you’re back on land to cook your catch. While you can always take out the Foreman and grill on the spot, you'd prefer to savor the taste of your fare with a full barbecue experience.<br /><br />For that, you need a fully equipped grill boat, like the Barbecue Dining Boat, which, at almost 12 feet in diameter, can hold up to 10 people. The trolling boat has 24-inch steel charcoal grill and a 30-watt electric motor capable of eight hours of continuous BBQ’ing. Has eight hours of barbecue ever been a bad thing?<br /><br />5. Use a GoPro to record your kiteboarding spree<br /><br />Though a relatively new sport, kiteboarding (also called kitesurfing) has exploded in popularity, gaining more than 60,000 new participants every year, according to the International Sailing Federation. While many of those new arrivals come from backgrounds in wakeboarding, paragliding, waterskiing and surfing, you don’t need to be an expert to kiteboard on a breezy summer day. In fact, kiteboarding classes are taught around the world, making it an easy activity to pick up. When you get comfortable on the board, strap on a GoPro Hero 3 with a head strap from the brand. You’ll be able to record videos while you whiz around the ocean at speeds exceeding 50 mph and leap more than 20 feet high on your board.<br /><br />6. Hit the waves on a motorized surfboard<br />If you’re a water sport junkie who can’t decide whether to surf or waterski, check out the Jetsurf Pro Race motorized surfboard. Weighing in at a svelte 30 pounds, the durable board (it's made out of carbon fiber and Kevlar) can easily be packed away for a trip and unsheathed when the time is right. Its two-stroke engine can register speeds of 35 miles per hour, so the Pro Race isn’t for dilettantes who want to dawdle in the high seas.<br /><br />7. Catch fish with an underwater camera<br /><br />Though you can be an experienced trawler and have great equipment (like an expensive fish finder), a lot of fishing is left up to chance, i.e., you're not sure what you’ve hooked or how to hook it until you've reeled it in.<br /><br />If you’re going to be doing stationary fishing off a dock or want to get a better feel for the aquatic life near your fishing hole, grab ahold of a FishEyes Rod and Reel. The device, fitted with a camera and an LED light, lets you peer beneath the water's surface. If you want to turn what you’ve learned into lunch, you can attach a lure or bait basket to the rod.<br /><br />8. Use a foldable solar panel to charge your fishing boat's motor<br />Bait? Check. Newfangled fancy rod? Got it. Solar panel? Wait, what?<br /><br />While solar power isn’t normally the first thing a weekend angler thinks to load onto his or her skiff, it can save a lot of power and cash in the long run. The Goal Zero Guardian foldable units are easy to store on a small boat and will continuously charge your trolling motor throughout your day on the pond. If you’re an avid fisherman, that means fewer trips to buy batteries and an end to paddling to shore.<br /><br />9. Walk on water in an inflatable ball<br /><br />You don’t need to be from Nazareth to walk on water. When swimming just isn’t doing it for you anymore, check out an inflatable water ball to traipse around the pool or lake. Just try to take breaks during periods of intense sunlight. Other than that, you’re free to test out your divinity.<br /><br />10. Play water sports and blast music at the same time with waterproof earphones<br />The sound of you swimming in the ocean doesn’t have to be the sound of screaming children or a boat motor. Try throwing on your own playlists — made possible by a waterproof device case and waterproof, noise-canceling headphones. The Kevlar design of Yurbuds allows you to control playlists and enjoy music at most non-diving depths.<br /><br />11. Affordably and seamlessly rent a boat for the day<br /><br />So you wanna rally the troops for a day of sailing the high seas, but you don’t have the skiff (or the funds) necessary to do so. We understand. Boats, after all, are extremely expensive to own and maintain. What if, however, there was a peer-to-peer service that let you seamlessly rent a boat for a day?<br /><br />Boatbound is just that — a service that allows boat owners to list their crafts for rent — similar to how Airbnb gives apartment and homeowners the opportunity to list an extra room or the full spread when they’re out of town. On Boatbound, you can captain the rented ship if you have adequate experience. Or, if you’re a novice sailor, you can rent a captain along with the boat. Either way, you get to spend a day on the water without losing your savings.<br /><br />12. Fight sea sickness with specially designed anti-motion sickness glasses<br />Being a seafarer isn’t the most natural fit for everyone. While there are few things more exhilarating than trawling the ocean, there are also many activities more desirable than vomiting and feeling seasick while doing so. An ingenious cure for that maritime malady does exist, though.<br /><br />XPAND Anti-Motion Sickness glasses use shuttering lenses to reduce the severity of motion sickness for car, boat and plane passengers. When the glasses are turned on, their electro-optimal system makes the lenses strobe, which creates gaps between what the person is seeing as they're jostled around. That quality minimizes the difference between perception and vestibular interpretation of movement (a.k.a. one's sense of balance) that causes motion sickness in some seafarers.<br /><br />13. Use your smartphone to plan the perfect beach trip and find nautical data<br />Think of BlooSee as a one-stop shop for nautical junkers — whether they love sailing, fishing, kitesurfing, boating or virtually any other aquatic activity. The platform — available on mobile — has institutional and crowdsourced boat routes, nautical charts, scores of weather data for surfers, information points like marinas for boaters and dive sites for scuba lovers and much more. For those interested in maritime history and conservation, BlooSee also houses information on sights like Roman aqueducts and environmental calamities, such as the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.<br /><br />14. Find the best fishing grounds with a state-of-the-art fish finder<br />Fishermen will go to great lengths to find the best catch. Today, there’s plenty of technology to help them meet that goal, much of it mobile. The FishHunter fish finder has a sonar pod that floats in the water and reports back to your connected device on the boat. The pod, capable of floating up to 80 feet away from the device (you might want to tether it so it doesn't stray), can track fish at depths up to 120 feet. Above water, it links with your smartphone app to tell you what the bottom of the lake is like and what fish are in the vicinity — information that can later be mapped to create hot spots and identify species.<br /><br />15. Snap incredible photos and swim safely using a dive mask with a built-in camera<br /><br />Though few places are more beautiful than a coral reef, dive cameras can be expensive, unsafe and unwieldy (it's tough lugging around a $1,000 device

EWEB draws water for treatment...

EWEB draws water for treatment from the McKenzie river a few miles from its confluence with the Willamette. A fairly generic five stage filtration/purification process is used. Not much is need since the source is already so clean. In 2004 Organic Style Magazine named the tap water in Eugene The Hayden Bridge Water Treatment Plant is located in Springfield and looks like this

I found it interesting that the Srpingfield  Utility Board (SUB)gets their water from wells and the middle fork of the Willamette river and not the McKenzie. I have lived in both places and I prefer the water and service that EWEB provides.As i mentioned previosly the water is put through a five stage process to remove contaminants before being piped to the EWEB customers.
This chart I took from the 2012 consumer confidence report  www.eweb.org/public/documents/water/consumerConfidenceReport.pdf  Shows an abstract veiw of the five steps.
Step 1. disinfection, chlorine is added
Step 2. Coagulation and flocculation( alum is added to cause clumping and reduce turbidity.
Step 3. Sedimentation water is moved through pools where turbidity and heavy elements(metals) will settle out.
step4. Filtration
Step 5.  the fifth step is corrosion control PH is adjusted using sodium hydroxide or caustic soda as it is usually called.
EWEB also recently started adding flouride to the water as well." width="100"/>
