The Stephenville man says he is being considered for the Nobel Prize in Physics for an innovative water system.

Philip Alford continues to quietly create aqueous systems inside his shop in his Stephenville home while famous scientists from around the world research the system that could earn him the Nobel Prize in Physics.

Last fall, Philip learned he was being considered for his award RPG (very good) water catalyst It was originally developed to clean the environment.

That plan began to change about 10 years ago when a series of what he and his wife Glenda call “flukes” led the couple to Idaho where they met Dr. Robert Haralek.

“Dr. Haralick has developed facial recognition software for computers, but his main interest has always been water,” said Glenda Alford under Surface News During an interview at the couple’s home. “When he saw what Philip was doing with the water, he ordered a system for his house.”

Today, Dr. Haralik calls Philip’s water a “medicine” because of its healing properties.

In October 2022, Dr. Haralik gives a presentation on the RPG Water Catalyst at the World Water Congress in Germany, and later tells Philip that it could win him a nomination for the prestigious award.

“I’m excited that it’s come this far and that they’re finally paying attention,” Philip said.

(If he is officially nominated, he won’t learn ahead of time because the nominees are kept under wraps until they are revealed.)

“Some people think that all diseases are caused by dehydration because if your cells are not hydrated, they cannot do their jobs, and that is why (scientists) are so interested in this water,” Philip said.

Philip water is known for its moisturizing properties.

During the interview, I splashed water on my hand, and then immediately wiped it with a tissue. There was an immediate and amazing difference in the smoothness of my skin.

Other testimonials from customers using the system say that their cataracts disappeared after water was sprayed into their eyes over a period of time.

Others say they have experienced relief from psoriasis, eczema, insect bites, and burns.

Dr. Gerald Pollack, author of Phase Four Water, describes it as “highly structured water” and “medical grade.”

During an experiment in his lab where plant cells were observed under a microscope, Dr. Pollack discovered that it takes tap water eight hours to pass into plant cells and just eight seconds for Philip’s water to do the same.

A laboratory in Italy compared it to the “healing waters of Lourdes” in France.

From a young age

Philip’s interest in water developed at an early age.

“When I was in diapers, we had a big circular tank in the middle of the pasture,” he said. “I had a free reign to explore and noticed that wildlife would go to a certain area of ​​the reservoir to drink water.

“It took about 50 years to figure out why they did it.”

Philip discovered that cattle always drink against the prevailing wind.

“Wherever the prevailing winds come, the water is smooth,” he said. “The little ripples on the other side create a change in the water that the cattle can smell.”

While studying animal tracks on Google Earth, he learned that cattle are attracted to water with some form of movement.

“The movement causes a change in the water that the animals go after,” he said.

With that much knowledge, Philip set out to fine-tune the RPG for human consumption.

The path to discovery

Philip opened Alford Water Conditioning in Stephenville in 1984, then sold it in 2004.

“I really planned to forget the water, but I couldn’t,” he joked. “It will not disappear.”

Soon after selling the company, Philip had a heart attack and began looking for ways to filter the water without using salt or chemicals.

I was already working on a filtration system to clean up the environment, and very early in the journey we figured out a way to capture and contain everything we filtered from the water by recycling it.”

It was this discovery that led to today’s RPG Water Catalyst.

the wait

Philip could know if he’s been nominated for the Nobel Prize in Physics as early as December when the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences meets in Stockholm, Sweden.

“This is a whole new science,” Philip said of his system. “They said I discovered a law of physics that no one knew about. Scientists are searching for my water and working to confirm the results.

“I’m not doing this for the Nobel Prize, I’m doing it for the people I’m going to help.”

In fact, Philip was offered $110 million in 2008 by a company that wanted to buy a patent for offshore drilling, but he turned down the offer because he didn’t want to limit the system’s reach.

Today, Philip sells RPG Water Catalyst systems to homes and businesses around the world for $4,000 to $5,750.
