Water Conservation Measures

Why do we need to conserve water? We all know water is essential, but too many of us think it's unlimited, where we in the United States use more water per capita than anywhere else in the world. The reality is that fresh water is a finite resource that is becoming scarce. While water is constantly being recycled through the Earth's water cycle, people are using up our planet's fresh water faster than it can be replenished.

Water Tower Conservation (WTC) technology not only saves a lot of money, it saves billions of gallons of water every year. WTC patented technology pays the user to be a good steward of the USA's water supplies. It eliminates over 95% of the water wasted in blow-down that is required by traditional chemical treatment of cooling tower water. Machines cannot drink tap (potable) water designed for human consumption. It must be modified to eliminate scale, corrosion and bio-fouling. WTC technology creates near-perfect water for cooling towers from additional other water sources, including well water, reverse osmosis (RO), or reclaim water from sewage water, to significantly lower maintenance costs while save on energy and chemicals as well.

Cooling tower water must be treated to avoid scale, corrosion and bio-fouling. WTC, discovered in 2000 and process patented in 2004, is a more natural way to do so. It is clearly superior to other cooling water treatment methods and it saves more water and money than any other. By eliminating the blowdown required to keep the chemical process working, it also eliminates the constant discharge of chemicals into the environment.

WTC works just as easily for existing towers or for new construction. It works with well water and gray water The ROI is and it offers LEED points. It is a proven technology and has been adopted by companies like Apple, Boeing, Microsoft, Yahoo and Verizon for their mission-critical data centers. WTC's founder discovered that if you remove all of water's hardness with a high efficiency softener under the right conditions, then Mother Nature will give you scale and corrosion control with bio-fouling control for free.

WTC units are sold in dual alternating pairs. Brine tanks are also provided. While one unit is running, the other is either on standby or regenerating its resin. Both measure water pressure, flow-rate and discharge conductivity. Remote Performance Assurance (RPA) data is available in real-time mode to ensure acceptable regenerations. 

A 1,000 ton chiller, running at a 40% load factor, will waste about 525,000 gallons of water each year in blowdown. At major city rates of $28/1,000 gallons water/sewer cost, WTC saves about $14,700 for 1,000 chiller tons. A 25 gpm well will save $90,000 in water costs every year.
