As a 58-year-old man with three advanced degrees (including broadly analytic lab science - criminalistics) and thirty years of primary home laundry experience, I viewed pureWash's technology and claims with a jaundiced eye. And I've been a "quiet environmentalist" since before participating in the first Earth Day in 1970 (IMHO consistent environmental actions speak louder than the latest "Green" condemnation demagoguery). But the "ionized water" technology has been used over the last decade in institutional and commercial settings with results at least as good as typical detergent-based laundry techniques for both sanitation and cleaning.

The pureWash unit presented favorably upon inspection, installation was quick and without incident, and the unit tested out as specified. Test load was four large heavy cotton bath-sized heavily soiled "dog towels". My spaniel girls, especially the young one, enjoy the wet Spring and get profoundly mucky. The test towels were loaded with dirt and muck and grass stains and filth. I normally wash and rinse warm with a well-rated scent-free liquid detergent and liquid non-chlorine bleach, both properly measured for each load. My primary goals in laundry are to sort properly, wash with the appropriate detergent, use enough detergent to reach "break point" for cleaning the laundry, and to get all the soap and dirt out of the laundry before drying. The pureWash was used without detergent or non-chlorine bleach and with cold wash and rinse. Some initial observations:

* The intake water from the pureWash was actively very fresh smelling without any hint of perfume, just fresh like spring thunderstorm rain.
* The wash water upon draining was filthy and smelled foul (probably because there was no masking detergent odor).

After proper installation the unit did not work. No red light or Blue light as indicated. An Electrician determined a bad power cord. I called the company and they were very nice and listened to me. Instead of making me return the entire product for warranty, they simply sent me a new power cord. Power cord made the unit work. Blue lights indicated everything working properly. But the instructions say that the unit will create bubbles when it is working properly. I did not have any bubbles. I figured out that my Low Flow unit could possibly require low water flow. I started restricting my faucet by about 50% and the unit started making bubbles. My newer front loader has higher flow than the Low Flow will allow. I now have the unit working properly with low flow water filling my washer slower. I think the High Flow unit would fit my needs better. Bottom line is the company is very easy to work with and the unit is now working properly. If you have a problem, you can speak with a real person.

After several months of studying this "pureWash" and after my wife firmly commented that we were not going to even think about buying one,,,,, I bought one. When I unpacked the box and she could see what it was,,,, you know what hit the fan. Man did I get the silent treatment.

After I checked the water pressure and temperature, 60 psig at 58 degrees F, I mounted the unit on the wall, hooked up all the water lines, turned on the power and did a flush on our LG 4.0 front load washer. In just a few minutes I could begin smelling the ozone's. Our laundry room is only 9' x 8' so the smell got strong quickly. Luckily we have an exhaust fan and a window in our laundry room so I was able to remove the smell quickly. I have even noticed a fresher smell through the house which is nice. My granddaughter said "it smells like the Ocean."

Anyway, my wife has this blouse that has a stain on the front. She was planning to take it to the cleaner to see if the stain would come out. I took this blouse and threw it into the washer with towel, t-shirts, p-jays, and whatever else was in the laundry basket. I did treat the blouse with a Spot Removal product. When the wash cycle was finished I removed this blouse and the stain was GONE. My wife looked for the stain, none there, smelled her blouse and smiled but still not speaking to me. Then I took a white t-shirt that was washed a few days ago in hot water with bleach and compared it with one that was washed with her blouse and said can you tell which one was wash in bleach and hot water Vs the "pureWash". She picked the "pureWash" t-shirt as being the one washed in bleach and hot water.

Pros; Cleaner clothes, better smelling clothes. No detergents, bleach or softener. Occasional spot removal.

I had a problem with mine, it wouldn't produce the bubbles until I turned the faucet down. Full open, no bubbles, 1/4 turn close and it works fine. My water pressure is 60 psi and the unit requires 40 - 75 psi. Not sure why turning it down helped, but it works, that's all that matters. Hope this helps someone else.

I bought ours from Direct Buy but wanted to post a review here so more people could learn about this product. It works as described. Our Whirlpool Duet washer uses hot water even on the cold cycle so I needed to buy the "Y" water splitter from Home Depot. I knew this because when I ran a load on cold, the hot water hose got warm. I really like the fresh smell of the laundry, kind of like the smell of a thunder storm. My son says it smells like tv static (whatever that means). My wife does prefer to add a little fabric softener and/or detergent for the scent but I never use any. If you leave a load in the washer overnight, there is no musty smell in the morning. Our dish towels used to smell after the detergent perfume smell wore away but now they don't. We also had some black mold growing in the soap tray that got washed away after 2 PureWash loads. Based on the amount of detergent my wife used for 5 of our clothes a year and the great price we got from Direct Buy, this unit should pay for itself in under 2 years. The only issue I had with the installation was that the paper template to drill the screw holes was off. The screw holes were too close together on the template. Make sure you hold the unit up to the wall to verify the holes before drilling.
