Effective treatment begins with a solid design. Our experienced staff will ask the necessary questions to help you design your equipment needs.

Our knowledge of water technology is coupled with a diverse group of suppliers and manufacturers. This allows us to provide you with custom solutions with the latest design systems available and any documents needed for bidding or specifying.  We can use CAAD, Visio, Revit, 3D, as well as manufactures programs for application and performance.

Our engineers can design a solution from the start or evaluate the performance of an existing system. We stay current with developing technologies and regulations at the local, state and federal level.

  • Water Testing
  • System design and optimization
  • Evaluation of current system performance
  • Engineered (CAAD) designs
Additional Information 
Questions for application
  1. What quality of water is required?

  2. Resistivity, conductivity, PPM, TDS, Particulates, Plate Count, Ohms, Mhos, Siemens, Etc.  All quality issues must be known.

  3. Is there a Bacteria Spec?

  4. Is there a TOC Spec?

  5. Is there an endotoxin Spec?

  6. Is there a TDS Spec?

  7. Is there an ohm’s resistivity or conductivity spec?

  8. If they want “just PEDI mixed bed water” what does that mean specifically in quality?  18Meg? 10 Meg? 200K?  What is the minimum/maximum resistivity and conductivity?

  9. Is the application batch, continuous or sporadic?

  10. If batch, how much per batch? How many batches per day/week/month?

  11. If continuous, is this 8 hpd/24/7/365, sporadic?

  12. How many points of use are there?  Are there different qualities needed at each point? Is recirculation needed at one or more points to keep the quality up?

  13. Is an RO storage tank necessary?

  14. How critical is it if the RO goes down?  Is redundancy needed or extra pumps?

  15. Future expansion?  Piping issues, space issues, cement pad issues, pre-treatment issues, and storage issues?

  16. If so, what size, and where is it put? (before PEDI or after?)

  17. Are there bacteria issues in the storage tank?  This begs recirculation and UV issues?

  18. Repressurization pump after RO storage.  You will need the flow rate of product water to batch, size of piping to batch, length of piping and quality of piping.

  19. Minimum – maximum flows, channeling, peaks, continuous.  Possible recirculations for proper flows.

  20. What temperature is the 18 GPM RO need based on?  77° or 60°, or 55° or 52° - or how was this RO determined?

  21. What is the incoming water pressure?  Will there need to be a pre-booster pump?

  22. Has an SDI test been done on site?  This is critical for membrane fouling issues and operational issues including flux rate and proper RO sizing.

  23. Has there been osmotic back pressure discussions?

  24. Is CO2 an issue – as membranes won’t remove CO2 and DI’s may exhaust extremely prematurely.

  25. PEDI questions – 9” vs. 12” vs. 14” vs. dual bed SB, pre-treatment vs. in-series PEDI MB.

  26. Monitoring water at all points – is there a system to shut equipment down when quality drops below spec?

  27. Who is responsible?

  28. Has EDI been brought up?

  29. What is going on with the auto-DI discussions?  Many more questions/issues here!  Neutralization, chart graphing, MPCA issues, separation, recirculation, quality control.

  30. Space requirements for total system VS what is available?  This includes floor footprint, height, doors, docks, stairs, piping in the way, hoists, lifts.

  31. Power and drain requirements? For all components.

  32. Pre-Treatment needs – Depth filters, softeners, iron filters, carbons, 10 micron, UV, feeders.

  33. Are we truly the sole source?

  34. Will there be any install, start-up, PM’s, service contract needs, chemicals, salt?

  35. Spare Parts!?

  36. How long will membranes last?  At what % rejection will they need to be replaced / cleaned?

  37. Clean in place skid – is it required?
