We just started recycling the water at California Lutheran University on Monday, September 12th. The water was really hard and the salt content alone was a third of the way to the salinity of the ocean! When all is said and done, Cal Lutheran will have conserved around 620,000 gallons by choosing to recycle their swimming pool water instead of draining and refilling.
Draining a swimming pool of this size takes a lot of work, coordination and time. At a busy University having down time in one of their swimming pools wasn’t an option and either was wasting 780,000 gallons of water. When they contacted us, we explained how our mobile filtration trailer comes to them, that we can conserve up to 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool and there will be NO DOWNTIME! Our mobile filtration trailer uses Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration to lower calcium hardness, total dissolved solids (TDS), cyanuric acid, phosphates, salts and waterborne diseases without draining the pool. This is a huge plus for Cal Lutheran because they will be able to continue to use the swimming pool, they can conserve about 700,000 gallons of water and there is no risk of damage to the liner as the water level never changes. It will take a couple weeks to process the water but in the end water conservation was the most important thing to them and they are excited to have drinking quality water put back in their swimming pool.
Stay tuned as we will be giving updates as well as a final product post when the job is complete. Thanks again, Cal Lutheran we are looking forward to providing you with an excellent end product and making an impact on California’s current drought situation!
