Title: FACTS PRESENTED:


1
  • FACTS PRESENTED
  • TODAY THERE EXISTS …
  • A WORLD-WIDE WELL WATER CRISIS.
  • A MARKET NEED FOR CONSERVATION.
  • A PRACTICAL, AFFORDABLE SOLUTION.
  • A TREMENDOUS OPPORTUNITY.

2
WELL WATER CONSERVATION AVAILABILITY.
  • THE PROBLEM…

3
THE PROBLEM…
The world is on the verge of a water crisis as
people fight over ever dwindling supplies…

-
Stockholm Water Symposium, 2004
4
India is at the epicenter of the pump
revolution. …smallholder farmers have drilled 23
million tube wells into the saturated strata
beneath their fields. But this massive,
unregulated expansion of pumps and wells is
threatening to suck India dry. "Nobody knows
where the tube wells are or who owns them…When
the balloon bursts, untold anarchy will be the
lot of rural India… - Tushaar Shah, head of
the International Water Management Institute
THE PROBLEM…
5
THE PROBLEM… …the 600 pumps are bringing
short-term prosperity to much of the country,
turning India from a land of famine to a major
rice exporter in less than a generation. Indian
farmers have invested some 12 BILLION in the
new pumps, but they constantly have to drill
deeper to keep pace with falling water
tables. http//www.newscientist.com/article/dn6321

6
THE PROBLEM…
Today approximately 300 million people live in
areas of severe water shortages by some
estimates, that number is expected to increase to
3 billion over the next two decades.

WATER RESOURCE MANAGEMENT
  • THE CONCENSUS NEED…

8
Regardless of the amount of water your well is
capable of yielding, it is always good practice
to conserve the water you use. This is especially
true in areas of low water availability or high
well density. Conserving water also makes
financial sense. The cost of making some small
lifestyle changes and buying a few water-saving
devices is far less expensive than that of
redeveloping a well, drilling a deeper well or
even drilling another well.
-CANADA MINISTRY OF THE ENVIRONMENT, B.C.

  • The accelerating need for safe clean
  • water has driven scarcity and quality
  • concerns, as water use escalates to
  • accommodate industrial expansion and
  • population growth, and by infrastructure
  • requirements, as both established and emerging
    regions seek to address them. -
    2006 Pentair Annual Report

Top Experts from 140 Countries to Assess Global
Progress on Key Water Challenges of the 21st
Century.
August 08, 2007 By the Stockholm International
Water Institute
  • The high level panel of distinguished experts
    will discuss climate, water and
    vulnerability...discuss possible ways forward to
    prevent vulnerable regions and poor people from
    even further damage from changed hydrological
    patterns and decreased quantity and quality of
    water provided for livelihood and sustainable
    development.

There are nearly 20 MILLION water wells in the
U.S., supplying ground water for public supply,
private supply, irrigation, livestock,
manufacturing, mining, thermoelectric power and
other purposes...
12
  • The National Ground Water Association
  • has determined that
  • 47 of the U.S. population depends on ground
  • water for its drinking water supply from
    either a
  • public source or private well.
  • In the Asia-Pacific region, 32 of the
    population
  • is ground water dependent.
    gt Europe - 75
  • gt Latin America - 29
  • gt Australia -15

14
There are 107,846 community supply wells in the
U.S.
These wells are for 41,264 community
distribution systems.
In comparison, there
are nearly 20 MILLION individual households
served by private wells.
15
PRIVATE HOUSEHOLD WELLS CONSTITUTE THE LARGEST
SHARE OF WATER WELLS IN THE UNITED STATES.
Michigan, with 1,121,075 households served by
private water wells, is the largest state market,
followed by
Pennsylvania - 978,202
North
Carolina - 912,113
New York -
824,342

Florida - 794,557
16
Irrigation accounts for the largest use of ground
water in the U.S. 49 BILLION GALLONS.
Nebraska leads the nation in the number of
irrigation wells in use with 69,583.
California - 64,423 Texas - 59,955
Arkansas - 35,574 Missouri -10,913
Kansas - 19,124 Florida - 16,376

AN EVER-PRESENT CONSTANT… We Move
WATER…. We Deliver WATER…
We Depend on WATER…

WE USE WELL WATER EVERY DAY.
18
  • 2 FACTS ARE VERY CLEAR…
  • WELL WATER IS CRITICAL TO OUR DAILY LIVES, OUR
    LIVELIHOOD, OUR WELL-BEING AND OUR SURVIVAL.

  • WELLS ARE BEING DUG AT RECORD LEVELS TO SUPPORT
    DEVELOPMENT AND POPULATION GROWTH WORLD-WIDE.

19
  • SO THEN WE MUST ASK…
  • WITH WATER BEING SO CRITICAL
  • TO OUR DAILY LIVES…
  • …HOW DO WE EASILY
  • AFFORDABLY MONITOR OUR
  • WELL-WATER LEVELS?

20
SIMILARLY, THEN… WHY DO WE NEED A GAS GAUGE
FOR OUR VEHICLES?
21
ANSWER
  • PEACE
  • OF
  • MIND.

22
  • SO THEN WE MUST ASK…
  • WITH WATER BEING SO CRITICAL TO
  • OUR DAILY LIVES…
  • WHAT PRODUCT CAN EASILY AND AFFORDABLY HELP
    WELL-WATER OWNERS MONITOR, CONSERVE AND EVEN
    MODIFY WATER USE BEHAVIOR?

THE WELL-WATER MEAUSUREMENT SOLUTION…
(12) United States Patent (10)
Patent No. US 6,490,919 B2
Bilinski et al.
(45) Date of Patent
Dec. 10, 2002
(57) ABSTRACT A well water level sensing
apparatus using a pressurized air column in
contact with the water at its distal end to
derive a correlated value dependant upon the
length of the air column which is converted
for retrieving stored water levels from memory
and displaying the retrieved water levels on a
visual display. The water level sensing
apparatus may be manually initiated or
programmatically controlled for continual
monitoring.

34
  • Markets were created for more efficient
  • lighting, windows, insulation thermostats, etc.

…Similar to the energy crisis of the 70s,
Pentair, 2006 USB Water Conference
35
  • Similar to THAT energy crisis,
  • Todays water crisis has created a market for a
    unique CONSERVATION product…
