Thanks for the info Shane. I contacted them and, unfortunately, here was their response: We offer deionization systems using ion exchange with activated carbon as the treatment technology. It is not reverse osmosis, however it can produce water with greater purity and no wasted water. The draw back is that it has a limited capacity on water supplies with high mineral content. In most locations I am aware of, Southern Calif. water sources are high in mineral content.
I hear you, Rob. I hate paying taxes too and think there are alot of things our government shouldn't be involved in. Ulimately, I also think it would be great if we lived in a country with your definition of "rugged individualism" (no government at all)...as well as with a stable population, abundant natural resources and a human race free from greed, anger, hatred and fear, where no one killed each other or stole from each other. Unfortunately, that's not the reality of the world we live in today. We can work towards some of those goals though. And a good place to start would be to focus on the many things we have in common - one of which is evidently a love of the outdoors. If you're a fisherman, you love the water as much as I do. If someone dumped a barrel of nuclear waste into your favorite river, you'd be just as bummed as I would. You couldn't fish there and I couldn't surf the rivermouth downstream. This is the silver lining in the environmental crisis we face today. There are still some people who try to label environmental problems as liberal issues, but more and more people are seeing them as they really are - everyone's problem. And this has the potential to bring people together of different cultures, religions and even political ideologies.

There was another article in The New York Times today about solar power. It shows why government intervention is crucial if it's going to get off the ground as a large-scale energy option. Check it out. "Solar Power Grabs Public's Attention, But Not Money" by Andrew Revkin and Matthew Wald. http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/16/business/16solar.html?th&emc=th
