A couple weeks have passed, and Martin's not over his hatred of bureaucracy yet. He's got a story for you to reinforce his point that’s brought to you by the Government of Canada by the authority of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

In this short instructive video, Martin Van Popta explains how to use Grander Living Water Energy Boards and Penergizers. These are the most popular Grander products because they easily demonstrate the effectiveness of this technology without having installation costs.
