As our fresh natural water supplies become more scarce we turn to other alternatives like seawater desalination. In many places around the world the only water supply is sea water and the need for fresh filtered water is dire. These types of applications are in high demand for a way to treat the water so that it can be used.
Seawater Desalination is Cost Effective
With low energy technologies always progressing and with products becoming more environmentally friendly, such as membranes and pumps, the energy cost for running a sea water reverse osmosis system has become much more economical. Aqua Clear Water Treatment Specialists has years in expertise and manufacturing of commercial and industrial desalination reverse osmosis systems and Water Maker systems for the marine industry.
Seawater Desalination Technology
Seawater typically has a total dissolved solids concentration greater than 35,000 ppm. Aqua Clear will run design projections and will either select one of our pre-engineered systems or custom design a seawater RO membrane system that is optimal for your application.

Pretreatment and Post-Treatment Seawater Desalination
As a one stop shop, Aqua Clear’s water treatment specialists will engineer a pretreatment solution based on the client’s feedwater quality for long life protection of the RO booster pump and membranes. Pretreatment options include water softening, ultrafiltration, multimedia filtration, carbon filtration, dechlorination and antiscalant chemical dosing.
Also available are post-treatment options to further condition the RO permeate including UV disinfection and pH adjustment.
Aqua Clear’s membrane healthcare program includes our line of specially formulated reverse osmosis antiscalants, dechlorination agents and membrane cleaning solutions to extend the life of RO membranes. Client’s often integrate one of Aqua Clear’s clean-in-place (CIP) skids with their seawater RO system as part of their predictive maintenance.
Our #1 product to this very day is our service. Aqua Clear offers preventative maintenance, remote monitoring & control, and membrane healthcare programs to extend the life of RO membranes. We can provide year-round service and/or operation of the water treatment system to support your facility.
