My name is Jim Galloway

I’m from Bucks County PA living along the Delaware River and have also for a few years, lived on the New Jersey Shore. Both are beautiful, rich, and for the most part healthy Environmental areas with a lot to offer in Saltwater and Fresh clean Pocono Mountain Water separated by the Salt line that moves slightly back and forth year after year.

  • In the mid-1980s, I started a company called Galloway Bros. that sold Water Filtration Units (Carbon Block coated with Silver) that were developed by engineers from within the American Water Industry. The design is the same or very close to the same design that is used today on most Countertop and Under-Sink models.

Besides my work education and background in different Water treatment disciplines, I am an avid outdoorsman and love to play and fish on Saltwater and Freshwater especially Surf Fishing on the Jersey Shore for Striper Bass. The Large-Mouth Bass on Delaware.  I am an In-ground Pool and Boat Owner.

I’m a Survivalist searching for the best in Water Purification for the Home and Portable Outdoor Filters, Rainwater collection, and Hydroponics systems. I love anything that has to do with Pure Clean Water. New Technology for our future and advancements in the cause of the earth’s environment. Cause Water-Its all we Have and all we ever Will 

 

On a Personal Note:

I have 5 children and have been married for 40 years to my wife and love Sookie who is a passionate & talented Professional Florist and Gardner and Artist.

I have been a  Musician & Songwriter for many years starting back in the ’70s playing Drums and Acoustic Guitar in and around the Jersey Shore and South Philadelphia along the famous South Street.

I have music published on Music Row in Nashville TN and one of my dreams still is to write a popular song. I’m that skinny kid in the picture circa 1978.

I think water is in my veins. I have made a living all my life taking care of water and it was a flood in 2012 that destroyed my home and all our possessions.

We are Hurricane Sandy Survivors, My wife and I lost almost everything but our faith. Thanks to her we kept moving forward. I have seen firsthand what Global Warming is capable of doing. Coastal populations should be concerned and take practical approaches to the future by planning for future storms.

I’m also a Pisces and strangely enough, I developed a non-life-threatening disease a few years back called Hydrocephalus which doesn’t affect me but there’s a shunt in the front of my head that pumps H2O  back into my body. I say it looks funny.  My grandkids say it kinda helps me swim better. I agree!
