Here are 6 reasons why sustainable water treatment makes sense:
1. Reduce chemical use
The leading water treatment solutions include chemicals for controlling bacteria, but those same chemicals also speed corrosion and scaling in pipes and tubes, shortening the lifespan of HVAC equipment, and, ironically, spurring the need for additional chemical treatments.
2. Say good-bye to harmful byproducts
Water treatment chemicals, such as chlorine, can create hazardous disinfection byproducts that are considered harmful to humans and animals.
3. Worker and facility safety
Some chemicals used in water treatment programs are explosive in high concentrations, and most are dangerous to handle and store requiring compliance with special worker training as well as added material record keeping.
4. Decrease pressure on limited resources
Severe drought conditions over the last year underscored the need for clean water. Using sustainable water treatment products stretch the useful life of process equipment while reducing water and energy consumption.
5. Financial savings
Saving water and energy translates directly into bottom-line savings. But the savings don’t stop there – decreased reliance on chemicals means less money spent buying, storing, and handling chemicals. And, choosing products that effectively clean and filter water without contributing to scaling and corrosion means your equipment will last longer and need less labor and downtime for maintenance.

6. Get noticed
Local and national programs reward and recognize facilities that reduce their environmental impact through sustainable practices and products. AS Filtration’s products can help you earn LEED certification points and / or achieve ENERGY STAR certification. (Read more in our blog: Become an Energy Star).
