Cooling System Water Conservation with Reduced Operating and Repair Expenses
The Total Water Management program reduces water and energy use while monitoring volume, temperatures and quality of water continuously for a fixed monthly fee that is designed to be less than current water and energy costs. We place our guarantee on achieving water and energy conservation goals, and provide data and analytical reporting to validate cost savings.

Water Savings with Technology
Hydrotech assembled several technologies that conserve 50% water use or more, while improving the operating efficiencies of equipment.
How HydroFLOW Works
HydroFLOW attaches to the exterior of a water line. Any type or diameter of pipe with no cutting or intrusion.
Water inside the pipe acts as a conductor that carries the induced ± 150 kHz signal throughout the entire water system and causes dissolved calcium to crystallize in the water stream, which cannot attach to equipment.
Scale and biological materials no longer attach to equipment and piping and are filtered out.
Chemical use is reduced 75% and maintenance and repairs are less frequent
Cycles of Concentration are increased to 8 or more, with continuous removal of dissolved calcium that has been forced to crystallize and filtered out; which allows water conservation of 50-75% while using less chemicals.
Water characteristics are monitored in real-time on phones and desktops, while influent and blowdown water conservation data is available 24/7, with monthly operations reports emailed.
Cooling Tower Water Conservation and Cost Savings
- HydroFLOW installs without cutting pipes or interrupting operations
- Dissolved Calcium is forced to crystallize into suspended solids that cannot attach to equipment
- Solids are filtered from the water stream; reducing calcium
- Water conservation is more than 50%
- 10-12% energy savings due to efficiencies gained
- IoT sensors send data securely to the cloud. Analytics and predictive Maintenance improve operations 24/7
- Data is presented securely on mobile devices, desktops and BMS
Sustainable Water Management for Cooling Towers
Cost Savings Case
Commercial Building Water Conservation benefits the Community
Significantly Reduces Impact on Wastewater Facilities
50% Water reduction equals ~10,000 gpd from a 1,000 ton cooling tower (1 Building)
10 buildings would save 100,000 gallons/ day, or 10% of a 1 million gpd WWT Plant
