Pacific Water Systems
About Us

Pacific Water Systems is a full-service water treatment Company. It was founded by the Russell family in 1955 as a franchised dealership of Culligan International, Inc.

Today, the company represents the Culligan, U.S. Filter, and Barnstead lines of commercial, industrial, and laboratory equipment and has vendor relationships with many other major manufacturers.

Pacific Water Systems developed international sales beginning in 1978 and became one of Culliganís largest suppliers of equipment to the Middle east and countries of the Pacific Basin. We have also had significant projects in Africa and in the oil fields off the Angola shore.

Our engineering, sales, and service personnel are experienced with virtually all process water treatment technologies and many waste water processes for the reduction or removal of hazardous materials. We can design, procure, and supervise the installation of water treatment systems worldwide.

Our principal clients include the electronics and biotechnology industry groups, hospital and university research laboratories, general manufacturing firms, and small municipal water systems.

Primary technologies include ion-exchange, filtration, organics removal, membrane separation, ozonation, and disinfection.

While waste water treatment capabilities are case specific, we have extensive experience in water reclamation for the printed circuit board industry.
