Dialysis Water Treatment

The Water Manual

Read the Network's acclaimed Water Manual HERE.  This manual was first written in 2005, and has been widely used in dialysis both nationally and internationally. The Northwest Renal Network updated the resource in 2018 under the guidance of several of the original authors and a review panel of subject matter experts. Facilities must take responsibility for following the latest standards.
