Clean Cooling

When industry moves into a neighborhood, residents might say, “Not in my backyard.” Jobs, an infusion to local economy and ancillary businesses are great—“just don’t build it within sight of my yard.” 

But the naysayers should look on the bright side. Most industry requires cooling towers, and cooling towers scrub pollen, insects, dust, debris and other allergens from the air throughout the surrounding community. So industry can be a good neighbor after all, if it helps alleviate your hay fever.

Live better, lose weight, get healthier, save money, improve taste, eliminate contaminants—the array of catchy slogans used by promoters of water treatment solutions is as endless as it can be confusing to consumers, who wade through jargon-heavy clutter to learn which treatment option does what to best protect their water.
