Scaling UP! H2O

107 Day 1 Of Industrial Water Week (Pretreatment)

Industrial Water Week, Day 1: Pretreatment Happy Industrial Water Week Nation! We have an entire week that is devoted just for us, the Industrial Water Treater. Last year, a friend of the show, James McDonald launched this holiday to help us celebrate how awesome our job is. Industrial Water Week is always the first full week in October.

Here is what we celebrate:  
Pretreatment Monday  
Boiler Tuesday  
Cooling Wednesday  
Wastewater Thursday  
Careers Friday  

There is just so much to do in our job, our holiday requires more than just one day to celebrate. We get a whole week! 

Today we celebrate pretreatment. Pretreatment is anything that we do to improve water quality to make it more acceptable for a specific end use. That means filters, water softeners, dealkalizers, and the list goes on. Today, as we celebrate industrial water week, think of all the things we use in our pretreatment processes.  

To help us celebrate this awesome holiday week, we took our recording gear to the Association of Water Technologies Annual Convention to take you right into the action. Please enjoy.
