Reverse Osmosis / Nanofiltration

Poole & Kent has completed more large-scale water treatment plants than any other contractor in Florida – including the world’s largest membrane process water treatment plant in Boca Raton. The ultra-efficient Boca Raton facility is still enjoying a direct chemical cost savings of nearly $1 million per year, together with a day-to-day safety risk to the facility and surrounding community that has been completely avoided.

It’s this type of complex challenge where P&K excels. We believe we have the greatest installed capacity of Reverse Osmosis and Membrane Treatment Facilities in the country – all Florida projects, from membrane softening to plant expansion.
