149 The One About Some of the Lesser-Used Technologies

Mark Lewis, water treatment expertScaling UP! Nation!, as a water treater, we always need to learn new things. If we ever stop learning, somebody else or the industry is going to pass you by. Staying ahead of this curve is especially important when it comes to learning new and innovative ways to treat the water treatment systems we oversee. If we are not careful, we can become overly comfortable with the same type of water treatment program. New technologies are always developing around us, but does new mean better?  

Friend of the show, Mark Lewis, CWT, is back with me today to talk about some of the lesser-used water treatment strategies in the water treatment world. Learning about new or lesser-known water technologies gives water treaters more options. A good water treater with possibilities is always a good thing. Join Mark and me as we take you through some of the ways we evaluate new technologies.
