Did you get taken in by the salesman who precipitated the iron and other minerals out of your water, told you it was disgusting, and sold you a treatment system for a couple of thousand dollars – or more? Tonight at 8 p.m., CBC TV’s Marketplace goes undercover to expose the techniques used in door-to-door sales of water purification systems — devices that can cost thousands of dollars, but which most people simply may not need. Co-host Tom Harrington investigates the scare tactics used to entice people to buy — and meets an elderly woman who spent $3,500 on a purification system.
