Remote Water Treatment Process System Benefits

Conventional water treatment control systems often lack the ability to communicate all process parameters from a centralized location to the point of operation. Thus, standardized control of all the facilities within a water district is difficult. Process adjustments performed onsite may not conform to federal, state or municipal regulations for water quality control.

I've Never Met a Rich Sharecropper

Sharecroppers are poor tenant farmers. They farm the land for the owner in exchange for a share of or percentage of the crops they produce for the owner. They do what they are told and have no land to farm themselves.

No matter how hard they work, they usually are poor. Isn’t it an interesting thing that the least successful salespeople in our industry see themselves as sharecroppers but the most successful see themselves as farmers.
