Publication Date: 
June 18, 2012

H2Zero Backwash/Recycle Systems conserve water by storing and treating contaminated backwash water from filtration and treatment systems.

Increasingly stringent regulatory discharge standards and emphasis on sustainability are demanding more environmentally friendly solutions for these residuals.
