    Replacement Machine ROI

    They got calculators for how big a machine you need and other things.
    How about one for replacing a water cooled with air cooled?
    Water prices keep going up and it would help show them the new one would pay for itself at some point.

    90% or more of the water cooled machines I work on are on loops, so they save a ton of power over their useful life.

    Sorry meant where they are dumping down the drain I still see them.
    I suppose its easy enough to figure but if its something I come up with they wont believe ....... put it on their phone and suddenly it is important and factual

    Sell them on common sense. Being "green". They are no longer allowed for new install in many municipalities

    Dumping condenser water in the drain is definitely no longer allowed in my municipality. Oddly enough, some of the larger institutions (like the state universities here) seem to still have a lot of large machines still dumping down the drain. I saw a huge, OLD manitowoc in a kitchen last week that was just pouring water down the drain. There were loop water pipes passing by just 4 feet above it!
