When we started our business nearly 5 years ago we were convinced that we had the perfect product, the perfect need and that the timing was right for a legitimate issue that we are facing in (predominantly) the Southern states. The issue was water conservation, and the problem was how to get hardness minerals out of the pool without draining and wasting an average of 20,000 gallons of water each time. We put our heads together, researched a lot, and came up with a mobile filtration system that could lower calcium, total dissolved solids, cyanuric acid, phosphates and other harmful solids from the swimming pool, all while conserving an average of 85% of the existing water.
The solution has been extremely well received… we have worked on many commercial pools, lots of homeowner pools, and have a satisfied customer list that regularly gets their swimming pools recycled with our 40,000 gallon a day mobile filtration system. In the process of doing this, we have conserved more than 10 million gallons of water, which has led to some national attention for us. Along the way we have received numerous requests to provide our trailers to others, perfected the system and are now able to offer a very attractive dealership model to those interested in offering this technology to their clients.
Some pool operators have asked that we look into building a smaller scale unit; one that could be provided for a smaller initial investment. A lot of work goes into designing these mobile filtration trailers, and we refuse to compromise on materials or performance. We felt compelled to go back to the design board and create a smaller system, at a lower buy-in point, and are proud to now offer a mobile filtration trailer that can process 20,000 gallons of water in a day rather than 40,000 gallons. Since most of our clients allow us to set up the trailer in the morning and pick it up the following day, this smaller unit should handle the smaller pool market easily, and with the trailer sitting outside for the same amount of time as our larger unit. Recovery rates will remain nearly identical to the larger producing trailer, but overall run times will increase. The original trailer (40,000 gpd) starts around $85,000 to purchase, while the cost of the smaller trailer (20,000 gpd) starts at just under $50,000.00. We were able to listen to what the industry wanted and we are proud to have put together an option that is a lot more affordable, the return on investment is quicker, and financing (if interested) is a lot easier to obtain.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 800.432.4794. Our goal from the start was to take proven technology that works and put it on a platform that makes sense. The “Puripool Process” works incredibly well, and with an easier buy-in, we look forward to many more companies having the ability to offer purification-instead of wasteful draining-of swimming pool water over the globe.
