In 1975, the founders of the company quickly discovered the considerable difference in the quality of water depending on location. The water source, whether city or well, hardness, iron and sulfur content, and total dissolved solids, were all issues that had to be addressed. Many of the aforementioned issues were easily rectified with basic equipment applications. The issue of total dissolved solids (TDS) however proved to be a bit more challenging.
Originally thought to be the industry’s preferred method of TDS removal, de-ionization (DI) was the way SoBrite also resolved this issue. We shortly began doing more research with the effects of Reverse Osmosis (RO) which proved to be more effective. SoBrite currently manufactures a complete line of RO units ranging from 500 gallons to 16,000+ gallons per day.
In the mid 1980’s SoBrite began to focus its energies on the manufacture of water treatment equipment. Our first “filtermatic” water reclamation system with its patented AquaPrep odor control technology, was created in the early 1990’s. As the requirements for water conservation and the demand for reclamation of water began to grow, so did the market for reclaim equipment. Although many of our competitors’ systems were able to reclaim water, odor control was consistently an issue. SoBrite’s solution to these odor control issues is to offer our AquaPrep system with its proven odor control technology as a stand alone system.
Over the years we’ve expanded our original product offering to include a comprehensive line of water reclamation systems, ranging from basic demand units with odor control to zero discharge, to high volume filtration systems.
