The 3M Pro RO drinking water filtration system uses multistage filtration and includes a high-pressure booster that keeps consistent pressure. It is able to deliver 36 to 50 gal of clean water per day. The system has an electronic pressure switch set to activate at 40 psi and shut off at 60 psi. It is compact and can be installed centrally in a home. With its quick tank recovery, the system is convenient for sinks in kitchens, baths, wet bars and refrigerators.
Membrane processes can be classified in many ways, based on nature, structure or driving force. Hydrostatic pressure differences are used in microfiltration (MF), nanofiltration (NF), reverse osmosis (RO) and gas separation as the driving force for mass transport through the membrane.
Growing range of applications spans the water treatment spectrum
If you attended the WQA Aquatech USA 2013 tradeshow in Indianapolis in April, you heard about many exciting topics, but probably none that have been in the works for as long as the septic study. After more than 10 years in the making, the Water Quality Research Foundation published results from the Environmental Impact Study that was funded to investigate the effects residential ion exchange water softeners may have on the performance of onsite septic tanks.
Septic study results show systems working together efficiently
Recently, the Water Quality Assn. (WQA) released the results of a survey it commissioned on homeowners’ opinions on water quality and treatment. The respondents showed increasing awareness of water quality and willingness to pay for treatment systems — all promising news for dealers and distributors of residential water treatment.
MCA Smart Technology couples advanced tank technology with electronics to make complex solutions easy. It is incorporated into a wide variety of Water Quality Assn.- and NSF/ANSI 44-certified water softeners, producing high service flow rates with a trickle of water to drain. It also includes filtration solutions for problem waters. Backwash bed expansion is 25% greater than conventional systems, saving gallons of water and keeping filtration media cleaner.

New 75- and 100-gpd elements help remove contaminants and impurities in household water systems
Dow Water & Process Solutions, a business unit of the Dow Chemical Co., launched Filmtec reverse osmosis (RO) 75- and 100-gal-per-day (gpd) home drinking water membranes at the WQA Aquatech USA 2013 conference and exhibition.
The RO membranes are the company's latest innovation to facilitate potable water that tastes better, smells better and has fewer impurities to help bring clean drinking water to homes in water-stressed areas.
In today’s residential water treatment market, competition for customers is becoming fiercer. It is a challenge to stay ahead of the competition. In the past, the strategy was to get in front of as many people as possible and hope to close on percentages. In today’s world, however, that strategy is not only ineffective, but unrealistic. So, how can you increase sales and market share in today’s competitive world of residential water treatment?
Increasing sales in today’s competitive residential market
The Doulton Rio 2000 offers superior flow rates for domestic and light commercial environments. The module does not require a power supply and uses six bespoke Sterasyl ceramic filter candles to maximize flow rates even at low water pressure. The module is reusable—only the filter candles need replacement—and is available with or without a jumbo Big
