Providing Clean, Safe Pool Water


As a Southern California native, Jeff Henneforth realizes the importance of conserving water. “Saving water should always be something we are all striving for,” said Jeff, who along with his wife, Rachel, is a Poway High School alumnus. Years ago, when Jeff needed the pump replaced for his swimming pool, water preservation (and cleanliness) took on a whole new meaning. “The company that installed our new pump recommended a company that did reverse osmosis for pools,” recalled Jeff. “I’ve owned homes with pools in Texas, Nevada, and California, and I’ve always had to drain or half-drain the pool at some point to try and get better water. Seeing a trailer that could filter my pool water and utilize a unique software system that allowed control of the trailer remotely was very exciting and just made sense. This is a great service and a new industry.”

And with that, Jeff started Triton Water Renewal, a company that cleans pool water by using a mobile reverse osmosis system, helping to save water, improve water quality, and maintain the life of pool plaster and equipment. “We can process 40,000 gallons a day remotely with a Cummings generator providing power to the pumps, all enclosed in a 16-foot trailer,” explained Jeff. “We use a powerful UV light (killing any living bacteria) and a reverse osmosis filtration system to clean the water.”

Jeff explained that the reverse osmosis process can save up to 85 to 90 percent of customers’ existing pool water. “If you have a 20,000-gallon pool and can save 17,000 of those gallons instead of dumping it down a drain, that’s a win for everyone,” said Jeff.


In addition to saving water, Triton Water Renewal improves the quality of pool water. “In Southern California, we get the end of the Colorado River water. Usually this means high calcium, salt, pesticides, chloramines, and other runoff type by-products in our water supply,” Jeff said. “This is the water we fill our pools with and then we add a lot of chlorine, salt, and tablets to the water to keep the algae at bay.” Over time, the chemicals added to our pools burn off and leave behind solids in the water molecules known as Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), which, Jeff explained, make the water extremely hard and require the use of even more chemicals to keep the water clear. “The water that we produce is 100 percent drinkable,” said Jeff. “We are currently in the process of getting our FEMA accreditation to be a pure water provider in the event of natural disasters.”

An added benefit to using Triton Water Renewal’s system is extending the life of the pool and its equipment. “The number one killer in pool equipment, especially heaters, is calcification,” Jeff stated. “Cleaning the water with filtration and maintaining healthy calcium and TDS levels in the water keeps all kinds of problems at bay and provides clean, safe pool water with the minimum amount of added chemicals.”

“This is a new and exciting service for people who swim a lot and know good pools versus bad ones,” said Jeff. “We are excited to be on the ground floor of this new industry!”
