The benefits of pilot testing low pressure membrane systems is presented. Although often required by regulatory agencies, pilot testing is offered as a means of confirming system effectiveness to treat challenging waters, a means to evaluate equipment options and lastly a beneficial way to provide operational experience. Presentation illustrates how piloting helps define system costs through confirmation of design parameters such as membrane area needed, chemical and power requirements, and operational integrity of equipment to be used.
