I am new to the world of cooling towers. I work in maintenance at a 150 bed Assisted Living/Skilled Nursing facility. We currently utilize a hydronic heat pump system for the 150 individual apartments. Each separate living unit has one 10,000
BTU heat pump for one bedroom units or two 7,500 BTU heat pump for two bedroom units.
My Question concerns water treatment for our closed loop system. We have a chemical treatment pot where our chemical
salesman adds chemicals. (The salesman reputation is questionable) So is it standard procedure to add chemicals & then
circulate the chemicals for 20 minutes in the closed loop system ? After 20 minutes the chemical pot is isolated until next
Or would it be more beneficial to continuously circulate water through the treatment pot ?
Thank You for your input. John
