Water Treatment Problems and Solutions
Treasure Island Casino had recently purchased a triplex softener system and was asked to be a test site for Culligan’s MVP controller. The customer was interested in the new controller because it offered the ease of programming; with the push of a button, all of the softeners take on the same setting. Treasure Island had a relatively new softener system with older controls, so as part of the field test, we upgraded the Treasure Island system with MVP (in 2002).
Mike Siegfried, Treasure Island Casino’s Master Plumber, had heard about brine reclaim technology from another company, who touted a possible 15% – 20% salt savings. Mike was interested in saving money on salt and asked Culligan for information on their brine reclaim system. Culligan offered Treasure Island Casino the opportunity to, once again, be a test site – this time, for Culligan’s new brine reclaim kit. Mike would be able to try the product for 3 months, and Culligan predicted a 30% savings in salt.
Since testing and implementing the system, they’ve been saving and average of 30% on salt. The brine reclaim system will pay for itself in 2 years. Mike likes the fact that one brine reclaim controller feeds all 3 softeners. He believes it will be dependable over a long period of time and it’s cost-effective.
