Sphagnum moss is a natural bog plant that decays and forms peat. It has been used in the horticulture industry for years, and has a long folk history for its ability to purify water, heal wounds and preserve food. Today you can add “preventative measure for cooling tower scale and corrosion” to the growing list of its many attributes as a viable, all-natural water treatment alternative.

The new design of the Window Water vending unit provides energy-efficient LED lighting, extra security measures and easier installation. Credit card and remote monitoring options are available. Typical installations include retail space, carwashes, kiosk inserts and water stores. They provide 24-hour-per-day water vending for every application.
Scalewatcher commercial electronic descaling systems provide effective, eco-friendly limescale buildup removal and prevention. Microelectronics enable the descaling system to fit in small, normally inaccessible spaces in commercial applications. Ideal for use in laundries, restaurants and bakeries, the system is available in NEMA2/IP54, but any ingress rating or configuration can be supplied.
The LIQUIfit angle-stop adapter valve is designed to allow users to quickly add a connection between an angle-stop valve and a riser when installing water filtration equipment, coffee brewers or icemakers into a plumbing system. A tough engineered thermoplastic material minimizes the potential for cross threading and a removable banjo clip allows the installer to switch the handle orientation. The 1⁄2-in. angle-stop valve comes with an adapter and can be converted to either 1⁄2-in. IPS or 3⁄8-in. compression plumbing systems.

The Coca-Cola Co. has developed and tested at commercial scale a first-of-its-kind beverage process water recovery system to produce high-quality water that meets and/or exceeds drinking water standards for use in non-product activities such as clean in place and bottle washing. The system expands the range of manufacturing applications for recovered process water and sets precedent for conservation and reuse in the beverage industry.
The topic of hydraulic fracturing (also known as fracking or hydrofracturing) and its potential effects on groundwater have dominated recent water industry news. WQP Associate Editor Kristin Muckerheide caught up with Marianne R. Metzger of National Testing Laboratories to discuss fracking’s effects and what we can expect in the future.
Kristin Muckerheide: How does hydraulic fracturing affect well water and groundwater?
Scale not only clogs pipes and destroys valves, it also consumes energy. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s Annual Energy Outlook 2012, more than 10% of the energy consumed in a home goes toward heating water.
Many consumers use energy-efficient products to save money. What many do not know is that energy-saving efforts can be negated if they have hard water and do not address scale.
Developing a consistent standard for energy-saving anti-scale devices
