Just wanted to let you all know that Bert and I connected for free to the Viber app before our last Loreto trip and used our iPhones to say in touch with the kids while we were there and to text and phone our friends in the US and Canada while we were gone. Viber lets you text and call for free to anyone in the world who is also connected. It works great! Check it out at www.viber.com

I trust you are doing well. I came across your web site information and thought I’d pass this water softener and water purifier information along if you think it would be helpful. This information is to help any homeowners interested in protecting their pipes from calcium build up and in providing sterilized water at their kitchen sinks. They can contact me directly – email@example.com.
WaterKing Water Softeners:
Water-King is a no-salt, electronic water softener that we have tested in Loreto Bay (BCS) in almost 100 homes since November ’08. Here are some of the results:
Shower tiles squeegee off water without dragging.
Milky rings at bottom of glass glasses have significantly disappeared.
Rings around toilet bowls have disappeared.
Detergent in washing machine foams instead of looking murky.
Softer feel on skin.
As you know, softer water will also prevent calcium build up on shower heads and help the preserve the bathroom valves and plumbing parts of the water appliances.
Water-King Water Softener How does it work?
Hard water is caused by Calcium and Magnesium combining into large particles forming Lime scale. This is the white buildup you see on the faucets and shower doors.Saltwater softeners remove these minerals and in the process adds salt to the water. Calcium and Magnesium are actually good for you. They are in all daily vitamins. Salt is not good for you and is hard on your metal fixtures. Water-King sends electromagnetic sound waves through the water and pulverizes the large particles of Lime scale (Calcium and Magnesium) and breaks them into very fine particles like you would find in natural soft water. Therefore you have the benefit of soft water and the good minerals of Calcium and Magnesium without the salt.
The manufacturer offers a 100 day money back guarantee and 5 year warranty. I offer a full refund (less installation cost). Contact: Doug Brown – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bill Doyle, owner of The Construction Coach in Loreto Bay reported, “Laurie and I bought one and had it installed in our house in Loreto, and we are astounded at the difference in the quality of the water. These things do work!” You’ll find reports at: http://www.water-king.com/commercial_downloads.htm Find the heading “Product Literature” and click on “Water-King Research Data”. Also visit Waterkingusa.com. The WK2 is recommended for homes fed by aquifer or well water rather than the smaller WK1 unit. No maintenance required.
Trojan UV Water Purifiers with a 5 Micron Water Filter
This water purifier meets another household water need that has worked successfully in Baja. The Trojan water purifier and filter require minimal space under the kitchen sink, and its dedicated spigot provides for drinking water and washing produce. The Trojan Ultra Violet (UV) systems pass the most stringent California testing standards. A significant advantage over reverse osmosis is that costly filters do not need to be changed constantly from sitting idle. The Trojan’s UV lamp can be turned on when you arrive and immediately sterilizes the water, and the lamp can be turned off again to prolong its life during your absence. Details follow:
- www.trojanuvmax Model A with the 5 micron, carbon pre-filter.
- It is a “point of use” installed under the kitchen sink; water is good for drinking and washing food and dishes.
- It comes with a 5 micron, carbon filter. The filter serves to removes sediments and “polishes” the water for better taste and to remove odors.
- We know from previous installs that the UV Max and filter use minimal space and mount well under the sink with out sacrificing the trash receptacles. A spigot is mounted through your sink or counter top.
- * Parts can be supplied to install a line to your refrigerator’s ice-maker so you have purified water for ice.
Maintenance: Change the UV bulb and micron filter about 1x/year if lamp is continually plugged in during the year. Warning lights will prompt you. Replacement bulbs and filters on hand for your replacement convenience.

On the 4th podcast we had 4 call-ins and 5 guests text messaging questions for Replay. I will send them the blog content from this podcast. First was the mosquito problem that was caused by the heavy rains. There were great numbers of these bugs and bites were heavy. The first question is: will LBC be notifying homeowners about this in the future and will spraying be done and will the pond on the golf course be treated? Communication on different levels still seems off.
Second question: can the monthly news letter have more info about matters that are of more concern than that the Posadas are 65% complete but still no business (coffee shop, retail, etc.) in sight. How about if some questions be asked by the homeowners and the responses are in the newsletter?
Question three: Who is the person in charge of business development for the Paseo? There should be something started to at least have a small market for the basics since this is a walking community.
In regards to the new sales techniques and question four: Why are you underselling all the casas sold to date and throwing in furniture and 2 years of homeowner’s dues and the Cortez Club.
The last of the questions is: why is there no one around from LBC/Replay at the Homeowners’ Weekends? Many wanted someone to be there just to say hi. Many questions could have been addressed very easily and included in the news letter. The team spirit was not there as only one team showed up!
My closing comment is we all want the same thing. We want this community to be the best it can be. Many homeowners have put their retirement dollars into it. Let’s all invest in communications, it’s cheap and renewable!
