Anyone who owns an aquarium knows how difficult it is to maintain water quality at a consistently high level. The principle “the larger the tank, the more stable the water values,” depends on the number and size of the tank’s inhabitants. When those inhabitants are dolphins, as at the Nuremberg Zoo, located in the Nuremberg Reichswald southeast of Nuremberg, Germany, the water treatment requirements are particularly challenging.

Lanyard

Company Reference: 

The Squids 3104 detachable dual-loop lanyard is ideal for electrical applications, while still offering maximum durability with its interchangeable design. By eliminating the use of metal, it is nonconductive and non-marring. The 3104 model features a stretch cord and quick-connecting buckle for easy exchange of multiple tools. Without sacrificing quality or capacity, the dual-loop design is also nonconductive and non-sparking, ensuring protection in other sensitive applications.

Wrench

Company Reference: 

Dual-socket ratchet wrenches fit most popular water works fasteners. The L2017ERG wrench includes 1¼- and 11/16-in. sockets. A thick grip helps lessen hand fatigue and is designed for longevity with slight cushioning. The switch on the head allows safe action reversal, and thru-bolt sockets let the bolt pass completely through the socket and arm head so nuts can be worked on any threaded length, replacing the need for separate regular and deep sockets. 

Alarm

Company Reference: 

The Revere wireless low salt alarm is a convenient, simple and affordable way to ensure you will never be surprised by hard water again, ensuring protection of your skin, hair, clothes and appliances.  This product installs in minutes without the need to program or input any data, making it ready to use as soon as you take it out of the box.  The versatile design fits any 3.5- or 4-in. brine well.
