Water treatment is a service that offers medium to long term benefits. The impact is positive on the whole system and contributes mainly to increasing the operating life of the equipment in safe conditions and maximum efficiency. However, a very small number of owners or beneficiaries choose to have a clean installation and the negative effects are not expected. Unfortunately, this invisible enemy works naturally, and its effects are only visible for an informed glance or when serious damage occurs: broken boilers, broken or rust-eaten pipes, clogged heat exchangers, cooling towers or chillers. such as broken, pumps etc.
The most difficult is to identify the symptoms of a system in which water is not treated. These symptoms are: decreased flow of circulating thermal agent and forced circulation pumps which will generate a large number of stops and starts of equipment or an increased number of operating hours to compensate for the flow deficit. As a consequence, all the equipment: boilers, burners, pumps, etc. they are exposed to additional stressors and therefore reduce their life span to an appropriate extent. For the equipment under warranty, the non-treatment of water automatically results in the loss of the guarantee.
In addition, as expected, significant additional costs are generated but especially the discomfort of the tenants in the building. For systems that have not been previously treated and this service starts later, no major changes are observed in the first period.
These begin to appear gradually as the system is cleansed and stabilized. Except for chemical washes, the procedure is not recommended except in very serious cases and with significant deposits, the system must be gradually cleaned by various methods as less invasive as possible.
Awareness of the importance of this service but especially of its long-term effects is the first step in ensuring the life of the equipment in particular and the installation in general. Summarizing, by treating the water you get:
- Increasing the operating life of the equipment
- Increasing the operating life of the installation by slowing down the corrosion process
- The efficiency of the heating / cooling equipment increases due to the lack of deposits
- Decrease electricity and natural gas consumption and maintain energy efficiency
- Lower the operating cost and consequently – Minimizing the risk of damage or accidents
