Industrial Water Reuse

I'm searching for information to assist in a industrial water reuse
issue.  Here are the bare basics of the situation:

Water is being reused for product testing.  Textiles in this process
water experience a shortened life expectancy of 5 - 10 days with the
treated, recirculated water versus 45 - 50 days when city water is used
for testing.  Also, the textiles are experiencing a color change during
the testing (from white to orange).

Water analysis and comparison has not produced significant revelations.
I've searched the P2TECH archives and other resources to no avail.  Any
suggestions for more info?

Thanks and Happy Holidays!
