Here at WaterIQ Technologies, we offer a groundbreaking solution that could be a perfect fit for your water quality improvement projects. Our Pulsar unit can be seamlessly installed in wastewater clarifiers, utilizing ultrasonic technology to prevent biofilm growth and reduce or eliminate algae. As a result, your facility can significantly cut costs related to regular cleanings, including chemicals and labor. Our satisfied customers have reported savings of up to 75% in these areas, with an average return on investment between 12 and 18 months. Additionally, using the Pulsar units in reuse tanks or reservoirs can effectively control harmful algal blooms (HABs) without the need for chemical treatments, eliminating any concerns about chemical residuals in irrigation water.
