With an increasing daily effort to maintain a reverse osmosis freshwater treatment system and an increasing water bill something had to be done. Just 6 weeks after initial contact to AqSep a new supply well had been drilled and two WM22000E units were up and running in parallel. Subsequently additionally units have been added.
With a monthly consumption of about 700,000 gallons (2,650 m³) operational cost has dropped from over US$ 20,000 per month to just over US$ 2,000. This allow for a payback time of well under one year. Not including the time spent looking after the water supply have decreased from being a daily matter to some hour per week.
In addition, the water quality from the desalinated water is better resulting in less use of chemicals for the laundering.
