Plaza Resort & Spa Goes Green

Plaza-Resort

In effort to save water and reduce their environmental footprint, the Plaza Resort & Spa in Daytona Beach, Fl. has changed the way they treat their cooling tower water. Waterhouse Corporation of Deltona, Fl. was contracted to replace the existing chemical water treatment program on 5 cooling towers with chemical free systems manufactured by Flow-Mark Water Treatment of Daytona Beach, Fl.

The FlowMark Pulsed Power Systems allow the cooling towers to operate at higher cycles of concentration which saves an enormous amount of water that was previously being wasted. FlowMark’s Advanced Oxidation Process provides the biological control, killing bacteria including Legionella, viruses, fungi and mold. The cooling tower water is now crystal clear and safe.

Comfort Inn Boston / Logan Installs Chemical-Free Electronic Water Treatment System for Cooling Towers & Heat Exchanger

The Comfort Inn & Suites Boston/Logan International Airport has installed a FlowMark “chemical-free” (also called “pulsed-power”) water treatment system for its cooling tower and heat exchanger. The FlowMark system, installed by Conservation Solutions Corporation (CSC), has sharply cut water use and eliminated the need for hazardous chemicals to control calcium, bacteria, scale, corrosion and biofilm.

“Chemical-free” water treatment systems are used to treat cooling towers, chillers, heat exchangers and evaporative condensers. They replace chemicals with an electronic field. This website describes how they work. “Chemical-free” systems have the best payback for hotels with cooling towers and chillers.

The Comfort Inn’s new system cost $6,300 to install and saves the hotel roughly $5,685 per year.
