Cooling towers are an efficient way to cool water for air conditioning. During the hot and humid days you don’t want your air conditioning to be acting up. Cooling towers use a fan to move air through recycling water into open area. If the water gets dirty it can influence working productivity, system corruption, increase energy costs and potentially cause serious health issues.
During full system cleaning is important to remove all of the contaminant build-up and ensure that all of the components of tower’s are operating perfectly.
Here are a few tips in maintaining your cooling tower
- Use chemical biocides to control microorganisms.
- Keep sump water around 68°F or lower.
- Inspect the cooling tower equipment monthly.
- Clean and disinfect your facility’s cooling tower quarterly or twice a year if the unit is not in operation year-round.
