Have you ever seen an R/O rig for swimming pools?

We played around with a HD camera this weekend and made a YouTube video of our trailer and how we set up and treat pools with Reverse Osmosis.  The video is here, if anyone is interested:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wy0CBSVqyZ8

If you take a look at it and have any comments, I'd love to hear them!  I'd also love to hear how any of you are taking pool water chemistry to the next level.  Innovation keeps the industry moving forward!

  • Thanks, Lucas. We love what we do, and we love what the rig can do! The technology is not new by any means (as far as R/O), but the application is pretty unique! People love seeing inside the trailer when we pull up, and are always impressed. It really is pretty fun to haul around and let it work!

    Thanks again for the kind words!
  • Awesome video, it kept my attention the whole time, and what a fantastic process you have all set up in a trailer. Innovation is the way to go these days and you have a great system, I'm glad we met, keep up the great videos!

    I am now making videos as well, so I always love watching others talking about swimming pools, the link above says it has been removed, do you have any other videos on youtube? or is that particular video on another link?

    The first video in this link has been removed (it does not look like we can edit posts here) and I re-posted the new one a couple of comments up from this reply. I have to copy and paste links from this page instead of just clicking on the link, so you may have to as well. Here it is though, copied from above: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_pC3bUGpJo&feature=email

    Let me know what you think!

    Very Cool Bruce. Have you considered selling units like this to other professionals?

    Thank you, Don.

    Yes, and we have several folks in the financing stage at this point. The economy is not real helpful for a lot of folks currently, and money is somewhat hard to come by. However, there are SBA loans out there, and we are working with about a half dozen individuals (I have shared my business plan with one of them) who see the value of this technology and want to be on board with it.

    Thank you again for the nice comment. It makes us feel good to know that other pool pros are looking towards the future of our industry and how we can take this to the next level!currently

  • We deleted the YouTube video in favor of a "better" version. Since I don't know how (or if we're able) to edit the original link, I thought I'd post the new one. Same applies-comments and suggestions are always appreciated!

  • Thank you, Kim. I know that you have responded to my "aggressive water" posts as well, so you can see where I am going with all of this. We are diligently trying to do the right thing, with a tried and true process, just in a somewhat unique application. We do not want to cause any damage, nor tarnish our industry (I have been a builder for almost 15 years now), so it is paramount that we set the bar very high and maintain our integrity and obligation to the pool owner and the industry.

    Thank you for the nice comment on the video also. We are not video people, and I am certainly no actor! We just thought it might be good to get a visual out there on what this all looks like and how safe it is. The girls were playing in the pool the whole time and were in no danger!
  • I agree that an acidic pH would be more of a concern, and it is good that your return water doesn't have a low pH. As for a low calcium level, it would be a very short time and would mix in incredibly quick. But since you don't usually return the water right over (or onto) a shallow step, you have nothing to worry about and "lose sleep" over. BTW, the video is excellent.
  • i think you would be ok for 99.9999995% of the pools out there but there will be that one..............

The LSI is Reliable


Using the Langelier Saturation Index as a guide for maintaining proper pool water balance and to protect pool plaster has become a mainstay in our industry, and we believe, for good reason.

We at onBalance have conducted several LSI…

Aqua Genie


I have a real old Aqua Genie skimmer with a control valve.

My issue is there is no plumbing schematics detailing how to connect the feed inside the skimmer through the control assembly and into the bottom of the hopper.  If anyone knows…
