Recently we have seen some comments online from people who speak negatively toward atmospheric water generators in general. We find that these people do not understand the technology of an atmospheric water generator, and it’s benefits. People’s instinct is to turn to a filtration system for their water needs. There is nothing wrong with that, as some filtration systems can be of great use. However, one question that people don’t ask is, what do I do if there is no water to filter? Then what? Since my response to a negative post online, was not approved by a moderator, I thought that I would post it here.
I just wanted to address a handful of the questions and comments above, to clarify some things. To start, EcoloBlue is a global company that has been in business for over 7 years, and has over 9,000 customers worldwide. While we do have our home and office atmospheric water generators (AWGs), we also have a full line of water solution products, including 7 industrial models that can create from up to 26 gallons of water a day, to up to 2,600 gallons of water a day, our emergency ACE Container for disaster relief dispatch, and even our new design plans for our water stations that can create up to 260,000 gallons/day of water for communities. The number in each of our product names, represent the amount of liters of water it can create up to in a single day, humidity dependent.

To speak specifically about the home/office units… we have our EB30 Standard model that can create up to 8 gallons of water a day, that is $1299, and our more energy efficient model, the EB30ME (linked in the post above) for $1599, and our patented carbonated water model 30s for $1699.
As you have already stated, you are aware that AWGs act as a dehumidifier, to simplify it for everyone. It pulls in the air, condenses it, and purifies it. However, dehumidifiers are designed to pull humidity out of the air, while creating as little water waste/production as possible. EcoloBlue AWGs use a more sophisticated technology, and are designed to create as much water output as possible. They also use a 12 stage filtration system, including carbon, reverse osmosis and UV to purify the water. While this is a bit much for water created from the air that is already generally clean, our systems are hybrid units that can also filter city, pool or other water if needed. The production on all of our units is scaled based on a 35% or higher (for the home/office units) humidity level. The higher the humidity, the more water it produces.
Our systems are also designed to recycle the RO waste water that is produces. So, our systems do not waste any water. This is unlike under the sink RO systems that waste more water, than your actual purified water output.
We are just trying to educate people of the technology. Everyone has their own reasons for wanting pure water, and they should just be aware of all the options they have for acquiring it. Our home and office units come with a 6 month supply of filters, but through the end of Sept 2014, we are happy to offer a 2nd 6 month filter kit for free with a 30 Standard, 30ME or 30s machine purchase. Just mention you read it here.
We are happy to educate people more on our products and their benefits, just give us a call at 800-691-6043.
