Since 2009, Pure Water Industries (PWI) has been the innovator and leader in mobile filtration Reverse Osmosis trailers. The industry is constantly changing but the end product is still the same. Typically when it comes time for one to purchase one of our mobile filtration trailers, numerous questions come up and we hope this page gives some insight into the most commonly asked questions.
What is Included In Your Build?
PWI constructs custom mobile RO trailers that are all housed in a 16ft. long trailer. All of the trailers are rhino lined and insulated so they can run 24/7 without noise complaints. In full honesty, they are no louder than an A/C unit and provide perfect “white” noise during the morning hours. Each trailer is retrofitted with a 60-gallon external gas tank so you can easily fill up the generator from the outside and these 16ft. long trailers come with a door on the side and barn doors on the back. They are roughly 6000 pounds and you will need a 1/2 ton truck to pull them.
Is This A Franchise?
No, we developed a Service Provider model for the easiest barrier of entry. This means, we custom-build your RO system, train you on how to use it, put your business name on our website as one of our Service Providers, and then it is your business to run. This means there are no territories and you can run this business how you want with no royalty payments to us. All we ask is when you get busy (which you will), contact us to build you another one to start your fleet!
What is Included in The Mobile Trailer?
As stated before all trailers are 16ft long. They include the following major components:
- RO Skid
- RO Membranes
- Bag Filter
- UV Light
- Pressure Pumps
- Diesel Generator
- 15-gallon tank that includes injection chemistry to protect the membranes
What Type of Maintenance Is Required?
The standard maintenance that we recommend is an oil filter change on the generator every other month and a fuel filter change every other oil filter change. In regards to the membranes, this is one of the most popular questions we get asked but the time frame varies on membrane health. This is an industrial-built RO system that is meant to filter a lot of water thus providing extended membrane life. For example, we filtered nine million gallons of water with our first set of membranes before we had them professionally cleaned. After cleaning, we filtered another seven million gallons of water before they bio-fouled. Purchasing new membranes can be expensive however there is regularly the opportunity to buy used membranes at a discounted rate. You might be asking, “Why would I want used membranes?” Well, the semi-conductor industry can’t use membranes if they can’t get them 100% clean but 95% plus clean is good enough for pool water. Another scenario with membranes is cleaning them once a year. When this happens they send you the membranes in a bag with a solvent. This solvent dries up in a year and they must be used prior to that time. So, you can buy a backup set and regularly switch them out once a year if you choose. There truly isn’t a set time they will last but during training, we provide hints on how to use them properly.
What Is RO Filtration Good For With Swimming Pools?
Reverse Osmosis lowers the following in swimming pools:
- Calcium Hardness
- Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)
- Cyanuric Acid (CYA)
- Waterborne Diseases
With RO filtration you can conserve up to 85% of the existing water in a swimming pool which is much better than a drain and refill. During times when drought conditions are in effect utilizing this form of filtration is not only great for water conservation but gives all bathers the BEST water quality to swim in!
What Additional Benefits Do PWI Mobile Trailers Come With?
PWI offers an Automation Package. This is truly one of the biggest benefits of using our mobile trailers. With our downloadable web-based mobile app you can see how the RO system is performing in live time. With this app you can see and perform the following:
- Connects to your cell phone, tablet, or iPad to see the control panel on the RO system working in real-time
- Ability to increase pressures, change settings, or shut down the system even when you’re not on site
- Wired to text your cell phone when the job is complete
Is Financing Available?
Yes, PWI works with a 3rd party equipment leasing company that provides financing for your trailer purchase. Please note, that this is business-to-business financing which means you must be in business for at least two years before they will work with you. In regards to equipment leasing the rates are typically higher and we also suggest that if you have an existing relationship with a bank try them as well.
