they can use white balls. White surface bounces light from the sun rather than the black colored balls w/c absorb light.

WTH! Just because it’s food grade plastic, does not mean it’s safe to eat! What a dingdong! Just made me question the whole project. Also, I’m wondering why the filtering and cleaning doesn’t happen AFTER the reservoir.

So how long were people consuming carcinogenic water before they realised the water was carconegenic, and made these balls?

The bromide ion is antiepileptic, andbromide salts are still used as such, particularly in veterinary medicine.Bromide ion is excreted by the kidneys. ... Chronic toxicity from bromide can result in bromism, a syndrome with multiple neurological symptoms.Bromide toxicity can also cause a type of skin eruption.

6:43: Difficult to prevent a reaction that violates conservation of mass! Seriously, though, I guess this is why L.A. tap water is no longer chlorinated to the point of undrinkability, which is certainly a pretty big additional benefit.

This is great. (: In today's world every single problem will have a solution with the help of using more plastics, oil and other forms of energy. And they will all create more problems to be solved by great scientists. Evil circle more looks like it.

Great, more plastic, just what we need. No doubt some minute particles of plastic from those balls will be leaking in to the water.

We have trout and salmon and other fish in our reservoirs and they feed on Mayfly and other flying insects. If we used that system in our country it would surely kill them all off. There is no way we would use these balls in our reservoirs.

The plastic is probably not safe in the water, there will be some degredation and consumption of it.

"The black additive [in the balls] is carbon black, which isn’t supposed to be harmful when it leaches, which is great. Yet even with this precaution, most plastics leach endocrine disrupting chemicals that interfere with animal and human hormone systems (Yang 2011). Some endocrine disruptors, like bisphenol A (BPA), break down in water after a few weeks or months. Some don’t. We don’t know what chemicals are in the Shade Balls, but they will leach, especially because the balls are in the hot sun and are meant to be left in the water over a long period (reports say 10 years). Most water treatment systems don’t take these kinds of chemicals out of the water." --- FAIL!

Watch at 5:52 when the Thai Airways plane's jet engine sucks in a bird (RIP) right after the guy speaks of using these balls at ponds near airports to prevent....waterfowl from getting sucked into jet engines. Dang, son!

The concept of "shade balls" really does work in the hot, sunny countries where it has been implemented...because they obviously are not the idiots that comprise California government and actually understand scientific principles. By which I mean, every other locale which has utilized this concept has correctly used WHITE balls. Because, SCIENCE. #dumbasses
TL;DR: "The only color that does not attract heat is white because white objects reflect all visible wavelengths of light. Black⁠—the color that absorbs all visible wavelengths of light⁠—attracts the most heat."
