Aquaman Pool Company in Phoenix is the first to offer a reverse osmosis system for your pool.

They comes to your house and filter your pool water just like an reverse osmosis system would do under your sink, just on a much bigger scale.

"The pump on is sending the water to the trailer and it's coming back pure water on the other end into the pool," said Chad Nikkel. "The water out of that hose is literally drinkable water, it's bottled water quality coming out of that hose.

"The water we create with this process is pure, so it's so much better for your skin, for your hair, for your kids. The chemicals in your pool work better, so you're not using as much chlorine, so that's better for our environment."

Not to mention the water savings which usually adds up to around 20,000 gallons.

He says every year 150,000 to 200,000 pools are drained, enough to provide water for 35,000 to 40,000 homes.

The cost is around a 1,000 dollars, so a little higher than what you'd pay to have it done the old fashioned way, but not much.
