Two years ago, we took some time out to discuss the energy limitations and high cost of desalination plantson our blog. At the time, oil-rich nations in the Persian Gulf were the main proponents of these facilities, as it was too costly for the majority of countries to implements. To this day, desalinating seawater costs around five to 10 times more than drawing freshwater, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

In the U.S., water quality is important—but it seems unless we’re traveling outside our borders, it’s not too high on our radar. While we’re continuously making efforts in our own cities and towns to keep up with infrastructure, other areas in the world aren’t as fortunate to turn on a tap and have purified water.

Fiberglass/Composite boat hulls are incredibly logical—the strength to weight ratio is optimum, and the corrosion resistance is superior for seawater. The ability to control laminate characteristics via use of advanced techniques and constituents is what keeps these composites ahead of other materials.

It seems that, more than ever, companies are embracing the “Made in the USA” mentality, which is excellent for the industry and the economy. While news stories seem to change their tune every week on how U.S. manufacturing is faring, statistics and initiatives are heavily weighted toward the positives.

When students go on field trips to these facilities, they’re getting much more than a fun day outside of the classroom—they’re getting a hands-on education. Not only can students see these animals function in their element, it can also open up their eyes to new ideas, career paths and initiatives.

Hair and lint strainers used in commercial pools are a very important part of the filtration system of the pool. This simple device is used to remove large objects, like jewelry, adhesive bandages, hair, lint and almost anything that can come out of a bathing suit pocket or even things that are thrown in the pool.  The damaging materials aren’t always from the swimmers; leaves, stems, and rocks often make their way into pools.  After a few years of cleaning filter baskets, it’s hard to be surprised at what you find.  Removing these objects from the line will protect the pump and downstream filtration equipment.
