This is a case study on a hydroponic grower in California and explores challenges that growers face when incorporating RO systems into their operations. The study illustrates how a water treatment system can operate on two different feed waters and one reclaimed water source. It also shows how improvements allowed the site to run on all of them and still increase system recovery while reducing the replacement frequency of RO and ultrafiltration membranes. The paper discusses how this location was able to overcome issues related to hydraulics, feedwater quality, and pretreatment.
