Pentair's Phil Rolchigo on using technology to achieve water circularity

Water is an essential resource in everyday life. Pentair wants to weave circularity into tech-enabled water management both in the industrial setting and residential homes. The company produces water treatment equipments and designs systems for waste water reuse and recovery. Chief Technology Officer Phil Rolchigo says it's important to think about water management at the beginning stages of new projects. "When I think about technology, I think about using technology to help Mother Nature equalize supply and demand in a way that we have the right quantity and quality of water in the right places for use," he said.
