If you are worried about the polluted water that your company releases, you will be relieved to know that technology has advanced so much that there is always a solution for most pollutants. With a right wastewater treatment system, water can be saved, and that means a lot considering water shortages could affect more than 5 billion people by 2050. The question is: How to find the right wastewater treatment company to do the job for you?
While many industrial water treatment companies claim that they have aced the technology and can resolve water issues, the quality and the full range of water treatment services offered can vary greatly than you thought. It makes choosing the best wastewater treatment company feel like an arduous task at first, right? Here are 5 things business owners can do to make the process easier.
1. Gather the data to identify your needs
This helps you to determine which packages, services and prices best fit the business’s needs. The list should at least includes:
– What are the water quality issues?
– Which types of water quality testing will you need?
– Any physical water treatment equipment, biological water treatment methods or chemical water treatment methods that you prefer?
– Desired final water quality and demand results. Do you expect a valuable return on investment (ROI)? What are the potential uses of the treated water?
– Will the company offer custom engineered treatment systems?
– Is there a consultant to help you assess your situation?
2. Check the candidates’ expertise and technology
You will be surprised to know that you can shortlist a few of potential profiles just by doing research to get some basic information. All you need is the Internet.
After that, it’s time to dig deeper. Is the wastewater treater a Certified Water Technologist (CWT)? If not, do they have significant education in the field? Does the water treater have knowledge of your specific system or problem? An extensive knowledge of wastewater treatment, and wastewater treatment systems, will allow the company to fully assess the issues and therefore consult you with appropriate solutions.
Another thing to consider is their technology. Don’t expect your future wastewater treatment system to be cost-effective if the supplier lacks innovative equipment and hesitate to use high-quality chemicals.
3. Know exactly how much you will need to pay
Although the wastewater treatment system can be that expensive to maintain and care for, this will only make you lose less money in the long run.
However, you should be more emphasized on the importance of getting the balance between a reasonable price and quality of service. So check the Capex and Opex costs carefully.
4. Ask for references and read case studies
References and case studies are one of the easiest and most reliable ways to verify a company’s reputation and check out the experiences of previous clients. Industrial wastewater treatment companies with a long track record of operating in the marketplace are the best places to consider all of the available options and customize the most effective solution.
5. Interview the potential vendors
Before having your wastewater treatment process installed, spend some time to meet the representative of one or two of the potential vendors, face-to-face. Superstitious as it may sound, but sometimes your intuition can tell a lot about whether your business should establish a healthy working relationship or not.
Every year, pollution – from filthy air to contaminated water – is killing more people than all forms of violence (including war), disasters, and hunger. Maintaining the quality of water and sustaining an eco-friendly environment are essential, not only because it’s your business’s duty, but also because the world needs you to do so.
