PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Today is Earth Day and we've found a way for you to tackle a household chore and help the environment while you're doing it.

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.

Clean everything you can, but in the end, you should clean your floors. People should resort often to reputed services like the commercial floor care Omaha NE to do things which can not do professionally. The cleaners know exactly what they have to do and they come always prepared with the right cleaning equipment and the best cleaning products.

"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". That is the biggest lie heard all year. A cool grand is an order of magnitude higher than the cost of draining and filling the old fashion way. Oh lord.

Not sure if Aquaman is the first or not, but we had Monarch Pools come out and perform that service a couple of years ago... the water ended up cleaner than new water out of the faucet, and the cost was about half of what's quoted in the article.
