ECHOTec watermaker offers energy saving post-treatment as a standard feature
Water from any reverse osmosis (RO) watermaker is extremely pure, has little salt content, and is very soft and acidic due to the removal of alkaline mineral constituents of the seawater. Therefore, similar to rainwater, using RO product requires significantly more freshwater to rinse off soap, shampoo and other detergents.
The newly developed post treatment system returns some hardness to the water to combat this problem. Rather than incorporating finicky and maintenance intensive energy recovery pumps to increase energy efficiency at the cost of reliability and increased purchase price, ECHOTec is the first watermaker manufacturer to offer a practical, low maintenance solution that saves up to 50% fresh water by improving the RO product quality.
The ECHOTec post treatment element also contains a mixture of minerals that returns bicarbonate alkalinity, correcting pH only enough to reach a neutral equilibrium. This dramatically reduces corrosion on plumbing due to acidic product water.
As the water is slightly re-mineralized, this will also improve the taste of the product water.
