December 15, 2010 - FREE SAVINGS ANALYSIS PROGRAM
CHEMTROL® automation results in significant savings on chemicals, labor, maintenance and repairs. This translates as a high Return on Investment (ROI) and short payback periods, usually a year or two.
A proprietary computer Savings Analysis program is available at no charge for specific facilities. It takes into account the type of facility (pool, spa, water slide), its size and mode of operation (all year or partial), and the type of sanitizer and pH control used in the facility.
Three typical examples are available on the web page.
For a personalized FREE computer analysis, just send us the information for your facility (see form). We will run the analysis for you at no charge and send you the printout to show the savings and return on investment resulting from automation.
