The owners of a new 82-room facility were looking for an alternative to the conventional methods they had been using to prevent scale buildup at their other hotels. For example, at a similar-sized property. $300 to $400 per month were being spent on salt for an ion exchange water softener. This Candlewood Suites has three water heaters, and it was specifically water heaters that had caused the owners significant problems at their other properties. The water hardness at the Candlewood Suites location is 25 grains, and the customer was initially skeptical regarding the technology developed by Fluid Dynamics.

In October 2012, a total of three Fluid Dynamics units were installed to treat the entire facility. The installation consisted of two, 2-in. Scaletrons and a ¾-in. unit on a recirculating hot water line.

At the time of writing, approximately two years later, the hotel has not experienced any issues associated with scale accumulation. Without the use of chemicals, salt or power, and without the need of any maintenance, there is no sign of any scale at this hotel. The owners said they are delighted with the results and significant savings.
