The water in your tap could be running low.
A drought-struck Arkansas town has begun testing a water-saving product that could save the town thousands of dollars a year.
The company, WaterSmart Arkansas, is testing a new water-purifying technology in the city of Jackson, about 90 miles north of Little Rock.
It’s a device that uses a process known as electrolysis that can remove excess water and carbon dioxide from water to create hydrogen, a fuel that’s used in many water purifiers.
The process is relatively inexpensive, and can be used on water systems in places like Kansas City, Missouri, or New York City.
But Jackson residents have had trouble finding the technology in their tap.
The water system has been in use since 2006, when a new sewer system was installed.
The city began replacing its aging, underused water lines with a new system, but the city’s aging pipes are so old that the new system is no longer able to filter out the excess water.
A new system called WaterSmart Jackson was built in 2010, but it was not able to make the water purification process viable for the city.
That’s because Jackson’s pipes were built in the 1960s and 1970s, when water use was low.
In the last five years, the city has begun using water from an old system that’s still in good shape.
The old water pipes are not able.
So the city is now using water that is filtered from the water in the old system, which is now more than two years old.
That will mean more savings than just the cost of replacing the old water system, WaterSense CEO Michael Hsu said.
Jackson’s city manager, Mark E. Hogue, said the new technology should help the city avoid costly and time-consuming replacement costs.
Hsu has been testing the new WaterSmart device, which works by adding hydrogen gas to the water.
WaterSense said the device can remove about a third of the water from a tap.
Hsu said the technology is available for $75 a year and is designed for use with the old, underutilized water system.
Hogue said that’s about the same price that the city pays for the water it has in its system now, but that the water will be filtered out to make hydrogen and use up water from other systems in the future.
He said he has no idea how much the water costs to replace.
Hashi said he is optimistic that the device will be available for sale soon, though he has not heard if anyone has tested it yet.
The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
