Anderson, South Carolina, February 7th, 2017 – AquaOx is pleased to announce a brand new digital head for the world’s best 7-stage, whole house water filtration system. A whole house filtration system is essential for those wishing for a clean home beyond drinking water. Showers, sinks and washing machines are all subject to impurities and chemicals without filtration and it’s important to eliminate these adulterants from all phases of your water supply use to ensure the best possible health for today’s families.
A whole house filtration system provides many benefits and AquaOx uses a 7-stage system to filter out a veritable laundry list of elements that put your family and pets at risk. AquaOx filters out 99.9% of contaminants including heavy metals, toxins, chlorine, lead, mercury, and Trihalomethane’s. The AquaOx also reduces lime scale, mold, and fungi in your bathtubs and showers. And, of course, it removes bacteria, chloramines, hydrogen sulfides, volatile organic compounds, and pharmaceuticals that find their way into the water supply. The list of adulterants removed by the AquaOx includes over 200 individual compounds!
The ‘brain’ of a filtration system is called the head. AquaOx is proud to unveil a new, digital head that comes at no additional charge and includes the same 10-year warranty with which all AquaOx systems come standard. However, users can rest easy knowing the analog head—which is preferable when installing outside in wetter climates—is still available and covered by the AquaOx guarantee.
The new head is a digital component that provides several advantages over the analog model. First, the digital head has fewer moving parts. In fact, the only moving part relates to the regulation of the flow which sets the AquaOx into and out of backwash mode. Fewer moving parts means fewer parts to break down over time, obviously.
Whereas the analog model regulates the pistons, and both functions of the timing mechanisms—the 12-day timer cycle and the 3-day backwash cycle—the digital head’s only function are to regulate the backwashing cycle. Additionally, the digital head has a 48-hour memory, so in the event of a power outage, your system will backwash on schedule for up to 48 hours until power is restored. On analog heads, any disruption due to a power outage will delay the backwash schedule.
Another feature of the digital head is the ability for customers to customize the timing. While they come preset to start a backwash cycle at midnight, users can reset the timing to whatever hour best suits them. Once that time is set into the digital head’s memory, you can literally forget about it.
With AquaOx there’s no need to run to the kitchen to grab a glass of water in the middle of the night, any sink will do! Showers will no longer have the scent of chlorine and your skin will feel better as a result. Your pets will benefit as well when all their drinking water passes through the AquaOx, keeping them healthier and happier. Even your appliances such as your dishwasher, toilets, ice maker, water heater, and washing machine may last longer. Water contaminants such as chlorine can break down O-rings and other rubber components found in toilets, faucets, and appliances. Tubs and sinks are subject to stains and rings. Even pipes and valves are subject to deterioration as a result of compounds removed from your water supply. Over the life of your water filtration system, you stand to save quite a bit of money.
The benefits of an AquaOx system extend to the great outdoors as well. With better than bottled water on tap anywhere in your house, you can say goodbye to plastic water bottles! Not only can you leave them permanently off your shopping list, you don’t have to feel guilty about where they’re all going when you’re finished with them, nor do you have to concern yourself with possible harmful chemicals that leach from the plastic into the water. You are not just keeping your kids healthy, but you’re keeping the planet healthy for them!
Lastly, AquaOx has experience. We’ve been providing filtration systems endorsed by the Water Quality Association since 2007. We are owned and operated by United States veterans with design and manufacture taking place completely within the U.S. When you purchase from AquaOx, you’re also putting America to work.

In this world, it is not possible for anybody to become successful in any field without the help of another individual or individuals. The same thing applies to a comedian also. In case you are seriously contemplating to transform yourself into a great comedian then it is imperative to look for the services of comedy agents. Your talent does not matter too much in the entertainment industry and everything will depend on how many individuals you are actually known to.
Most probably you have heard some horror stories about different individuals such as musicians, actors and even comedians whose careers were jeopardized by some irresponsible agents. So why should you consider employing an agent? In the subsequent paragraphs, we will discuss several important reasons why you need a comedy agent.
Firstly, in case you do not have an agent you have to depend on your own contacts regarding searching for a gig in the industry. While it might be possible for you to accomplish your objectives in your local area where you may have quite a few contacts, it will not be the same once you plan to go outside your own locality.
The main job of a comedy agent will be to find work for you by looking for gigs at places. As a matter of fact, they tend to have much larger contacts as compared to an average person which helps them to get the job done. Apart from booking gigs in your own locality, they will also be efficient in other areas as well.
Moreover, they will be able to have a much better idea regarding your personal expertise after you have developed a good relationship with your agent. This will help them to find gigs in some areas where they understand that the audience would really appreciate your performance as well as a sense of humor. In fact, different individuals prefer different types of humor. While some will go for slapstick comedy, others might appreciate cynical barbs and parodies. Some others might have a preference for dry humor. Your agent will be able to properly guide you regarding what type of audience you’ll be entertaining during the show in an unknown place.
Furthermore, all your traveling, fooding as well as accommodation arrangements will be looked after by your agent while you are traveling abroad. It would have been really difficult for you to get this done all by yourself. Although it might seem easy initially, however, you will be able to concentrate on your performance by leaving the job in the hands of your agent. Apart from this, their service will be really useful to you when you have a very hectic schedule.
At times, you might be required to perform in a certain area and then travel to another location the very next day. This will really prove to be very tiresome for you especially after performing on the stage the whole night. The services of comedy agents become imperative in these types of situations.
Now that you understand the important reasons why you should hire the services of an agent, you must try to come across a reliable and trustworthy one for you such as Chris Killian. You can easily get frustrated in the search for a good comedian. In this case, you could employ an irresponsible agent such as Summit Comedy. You can also check out the comedian forums where you will find the names of well-known comedian agents who have served other comedians successfully in the past. Or you can hire Chris Killian here with Summit Comedy.
It is prudent to come across an agent who comprehends that the success of their own careers is simultaneously linked with that of yours. Try to contact several trustworthy agents and also meet them personally. Ask them important queries such as how many contacts there have got which will help you to find a gig, how much remuneration they will be asking you for their service and also how frequently they will be able to find gigs for you.
You should try to perform some research on these prospective comedy agents after meeting them in person prior to giving a yes and no. You might even ask the people you are acquainted with regarding their experiences with these agents in case they have appointed one in the past. After coming across a reliable agent who will be able to assist you successfully, it is only a matter of trying out cooperating with them.
