LifeSource Water Systems says its water management and water treatment products and services can help commercial property owners and facility managers facing drought-related water restrictions, rising water rates and mandatory conservation practices.
The company is expanding its commercial division with “Whole-Building” water filtration and ScaleSolver conditioning systems that include integrated water meter technologies to help customers manage water usage and flow rates within their buildings.
LifeSource Water Systems is working with Comfort Systems USA on the commercial water management system. Ken Hoving, Comfort Systems USA executive vice president says water usage and flow rate data are continually captured via smart meters, which allows building property managers, facility engineers, and maintenance staff to more efficiently track water use and conserve water. “This is especially important for our customers who require mechanical engineering designs, construction, and ongoing HVAC and plumbing services in new and existing commercial buildings.”
LifeSource ScaleSolver conditioning products help reduce and prevent scale buildup for most applications caused by hard water. This water softener alternative does not soften water with salt additives, does not waste water, and does not require electricity or add any chemicals during water treatment. An accurate water meter is optional when it becomes essential to monitor, benchmark and audit water use and flow rates, implement leak detection and execute other conservation programs.
A March 2015 CFE Media National Water Management Study shows more than 78 percent of facility managers and engineers find water treatment and management best practices important. However, only 60 percent actually track water consumption. The survey revealed many facility managers and engineers are unaware of new technology alternatives to water softeners that don’t waste excess water for treatment, require delivery and storage of salt, and pollute the environment when dumping massive amounts of salt-brine discharges. Some municipalities have banned water-softening systems given the amount of wastewater and harm to the environment.
LifeSource Commercial Water Systems are being specified for new design-build projects and are also available for existing buildings, including multifamily condos, apartments, senior living communities, mixed-use office buildings, education and healthcare facilities, hotels, resorts, spas and more.
