00:00:00,580 --> 00:00:03,070

A tool developed for

the oil and gas industry

2

00:00:03,070 --> 00:00:04,980

to reduce paraffin, asphalt,

3

00:00:04,980 --> 00:00:08,050

and mineral deposits in

oil wells now is available

4

00:00:08,050 --> 00:00:11,510

for home use as a

chemical-free water softener.

5

00:00:11,510 --> 00:00:14,210

A Durango woman is the

first in the United States

6

00:00:14,210 --> 00:00:15,870

to carry the product.

7

00:00:15,870 --> 00:00:17,624

You're watching "The Local News Network,"

8

00:00:17,624 --> 00:00:20,290

brought to you by Serious Texas Bar-B-Q

9

00:00:20,290 --> 00:00:21,950

and The Payroll Department.

10

00:00:21,950 --> 00:00:23,363

I'm Wendy Graham Settle.

11

00:00:24,200 --> 00:00:27,590

When Durango area resident

Jenny Northrop was working

12

00:00:27,590 --> 00:00:30,140

for Halliburton on fracking technology,

13

00:00:30,140 --> 00:00:33,400

she learned about a tool that

could reduce mineral deposits

14

00:00:33,400 --> 00:00:36,150

in oil wells without using chemicals.

15

00:00:36,150 --> 00:00:38,700

Now she is the first

licensed representative

16

00:00:38,700 --> 00:00:41,830

in the United States to sell the Enercat,

17

00:00:41,830 --> 00:00:44,930

a nanotechnology that

removes calcium carbonate

18

00:00:44,930 --> 00:00:46,550

in domestic water.

19

00:00:46,550 --> 00:00:49,754

Calcium carbonate is the culprit

behind the scaly deposits

20

00:00:49,754 --> 00:00:52,606

that wind up in your

pipes and water heater,

21

00:00:52,606 --> 00:00:55,920

reducing water flow and energy efficiency.

22

00:00:55,920 --> 00:00:59,463

It's also the stuff that makes

your skin and hair feel dry.

23

00:01:01,020 --> 00:01:02,860

Well, it is a nanotechnology

24

00:01:02,860 --> 00:01:05,190

and what it does is it changes

the frequency of water.

25

00:01:05,190 --> 00:01:08,570

It uses metals and rare-earth minerals

26

00:01:08,570 --> 00:01:12,000

and crystals to change the

frequency of the water.

27

00:01:12,000 --> 00:01:14,250

What you see in the hard

water when you get build up

28

00:01:14,250 --> 00:01:16,750

on your pipes is the

scale out of the water,

29

00:01:16,750 --> 00:01:18,860

which is actually calcite.

30

00:01:18,860 --> 00:01:21,850

This changes that calcite into aragonite,

31

00:01:21,850 --> 00:01:24,270

which is a pokier structure,

32

00:01:24,270 --> 00:01:25,430

molecular structure,

33

00:01:25,430 --> 00:01:27,380

and it doesn't stick to your pipes.

34

00:01:27,380 --> 00:01:30,470

It goes into solution

and stays in the water.

35

00:01:30,470 --> 00:01:32,660

It also improves the feel of your water,

36

00:01:32,660 --> 00:01:33,990

improves your hair.

37

00:01:33,990 --> 00:01:36,261

You have to use less soap in your washing,

38

00:01:36,261 --> 00:01:38,710

in dishes, and laundry.

39

00:01:38,710 --> 00:01:41,640

It also lowers the boiling point of water,

40

00:01:41,640 --> 00:01:44,533

which lowers your costs

on your hot water heater.

41

00:01:46,160 --> 00:01:48,840

The tool was developed in the 1990s

42

00:01:48,840 --> 00:01:52,260

by the Calgary based

Synergetic Oil Tools company.

43

00:01:52,260 --> 00:01:55,050

It uses a proprietary

mixture of quartz crystals

44

00:01:55,050 --> 00:01:56,680

and semi-precious metals

45

00:01:56,680 --> 00:01:59,870

to produce a negatively

charged passive energy wave

46

00:01:59,870 --> 00:02:01,040

that changes the structure

47

00:02:01,040 --> 00:02:03,900

of calcite molecules into aragonite

48

00:02:03,900 --> 00:02:05,920

so that it remains in solution rather

49

00:02:05,920 --> 00:02:08,970

than glomming onto your pipes or skin.

50

00:02:08,970 --> 00:02:11,335

The tool is quickly installed

around the metal intake pipe

51

00:02:11,335 --> 00:02:13,861

of your water heater and

within a few minutes,

52

00:02:13,861 --> 00:02:16,580

you can feel the difference.

53

00:02:16,580 --> 00:02:19,200

Northrop demonstrated

the energy it produced

54

00:02:19,200 --> 00:02:22,330

with two pieces of ice

that melted far faster

55

00:02:22,330 --> 00:02:25,640

on the Enercat than it

did on a ceramic plate.

56

00:02:25,640 --> 00:02:27,620

Users save money on energy costs

57

00:02:27,620 --> 00:02:29,530

because water heats more quickly.

58

00:02:29,530 --> 00:02:32,810

Soaps are more effective in

soft water so you use less,

59

00:02:32,810 --> 00:02:35,100

and the tool is maintenance free.

60

00:02:35,100 --> 00:02:37,410

Nor does the Enercat use salt, filters,

61

00:02:37,410 --> 00:02:39,255

or electricity to soften the water.

62

00:02:39,255 --> 00:02:42,190

The unit costs about $400.

63

00:02:42,190 --> 00:02:43,820

64

00:02:43,820 --> 00:02:48,820
