Hello -

I assumed you were referring to "slow sand filtration systems", and
not just the "filters" involved in slow sand filtration systems.  My
search has uncovered several companies dealing in slow sand filtration
systems.  Please let me knos if this is not what you're looking for,
and I'll be glad to search further.  Thank you.

In the future, before rating an answer, you'll want to request more
clarification or research from a researcher.   Slow sand filtration
technology is an older technology dating back to the 1800's.  I
believe I supplied to you the preponderance of companies involved in
the manufacture of this technology.

Thank you,

To confirm this, I spoke with two of the companies.  The first said he
hasn't even heard of anyone else in the states doing slow sand
filtration.  The other company said they only knew of one other --
"Davnor" -- who I included on the list.

That second representative also mentioned that most any "water
engineering" company would be able to build one of these.  Not sure if
this is the kind of thing you're looking for, but I could supply you
with a list of engineering firms that could potentially build a slow
sand filtration setup for you.

Bosque Engineering in Tucson is owned by the same person who co-owns
Recharge Technology, LLC.  He is probably one of the leading experts
on recharge in the State of Arizona, if not the country.

And his name is Peter Livingston, not Bruce :)
