    Water cooled internal condensers?

    Has anyone used these? Do you think these will go anywhere? coolyoudirect.co.uk

    Not sure... Looks like they took a spin on the water source heat pump and made it a split. It'll probably use more water than people would think.
    I know the standard is 2-3 gpm per ton (12k btu). Not sure what it would be with say a 55-60 degree entering water temp. I could definitely see issues with fouling the condenser over time with hard water and mineral deposits. Water treatment would help but I highly doubt anyone would go for it let alone maintain it correctly.
    It is a really neat idea. I would imagine it would fill a niche in the market, just not sure how big it would become though.

    water treatment for a pump and dump is big $$$$$. even then, would you shut down the condenser when regeneration has to take place (2 hours)?

    Yeah, that's what I was getting at. If you live in a colder climate, it would probably have a lower flow with colder water, making fouling even worse.
    This would be restricted to city water applications. Forget it if your house or appt. is on well water... like me.

    Edit: Sorry Marc, I thought I hit reply...

    And here is a company with the water on the inside and air source on the outside! I like this idea better than refrigerant lines to the wall mounts.
