LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Water Filtration Expert and Star of Animal Planet’s TANKED, Wayde King has pledged to install his superior filtration system in Flint, Michigan public schools while the current water issues are being addressed. King’s team has been working with the Mayor’s office in Flint to coordinate these efforts.
Since 2014, the residents of Flint have been plagued with contaminated water issues. The King Filtration System is an ideal solution for homes, businesses, schools and government buildings in Flint. The units are maintenance free, low-energy, self-purging pure alkaline spring water filtration systems, and warranted for 20 years. “This means, once the units are installed, homeowners and others with the units, will not incur any future expenses with additives such as salt bags or require any maintenance to clean or replace filters,” states King. “This is a whole-house filtration system delivering purified water for drinking, cooking and bath/shower usage. It’s a real solution for the community, not just a band-aid.”
King has over 30-years’ experience in developing and designing custom filtration systems. He understands the science and engineering to create efficient and effective filtration units that deliver superior water quality benefiting the public’s health and well-being.
King sees the biggest challenge to implementing a city-wide plan is the expense associated with the units and installation. Thus, when Elon Musk Tweeted on 1:52 PM - July 11, 2018 “Please consider this a commitment that I will fund fixing the water in any house in Flint that has water contamination above FDA levels. No kidding.”, King decided to call on Musk to honor his tweet and join his efforts. Musk has the financial means, we have the “fix”, a long-term “fix”.
“We have the capacity to begin installations immediately,” notes King. He is also reaching out to his fans and celebrity associates to assist with the cause and increase awareness of this dire situation.
As for the educational institutions, initially King will provide and install a custom system in a Flint public school at no-charge to the city with the hopes of creating an “adopt-a-school” fund for the remaining institutions.
"I would like to thank our friends at Tanked and Kings Filtration System for all of the work that they are doing on behalf of the Flint residents. We are working together to solve the water issue at the schools and hoping to go beyond that and into the community. With their help, as well as anyone else who steps in and steps up, we will move our residents from crisis to recovery," states Mayor Weaver.
