A Message From Midwest Chlorinating

Water takes mutilple steps and uses many different resources before it gets to your tap.  In many cases, treated water is too valuable to waste. 

Water utilities spend millions of dollars per year on electricity that is used to treat and deliver water alone. And around 10% of the electricity a municipality generates is used just to treat, heat, and pump water to homes and businesses.

The negative effects of shutting down the system and draining the water to make repairs to water mains is essentially two fold; Not only is all the treated water lost from draining the system after a shutdown but the system has to be refilled after repairs are made to get the system up and running.  We'll save the risks associated with letting thousands of gallons of water drain into the hole that you'll be working in up to your imagination.

The bottom line:  Water is the most important resource on the Planet, way too important to be wasted .  It is more valuable than gold and more important oil.   We need water to live, period.

Some Intersting facts on Water:

The Earth is 70% water but less than 1% of the world's fresh water  is readily accessible for drinking.

90% of the earths water is frozen

Water systems fail at a rate of 50% or higher.

Less than 1% of the water treated by public water systems is used for drinking and cooking.
