The Clarity Of Energy Conservation
Domestic hot water is one of the top three sources of energy consumption and emissions in a typical building. Innovations in potable water treatment can lower your energy bills while protecting your pipework. At the core of Pace’s potable water energy saving efforts is the proprietary treatment Parafos®.
Causes of Potable Water System Inefficiency
Scale – Water contains minerals including calcium and magnesium which buildup, called scale. This results in narrowing pipe walls, degraded water pressure, fouling and clogged fixtures. Buildup of scale in the hot water tank and distribution network blocks heat transfer and significantly increases energy bills and emission.
Corrosion – Caused by oxygenated water, corrosion can result in pinhole leaks, water damage, mold, seal abrasion, pump failure and the potential for a complete building re-pipe.
Staining – Oxidation can cause unsightly red, green, or black staining in sinks, toilets and other fixtures.
Potable Water System Solutions
Water systems treated with Parafos® display noticeable results after the first few days of treatment. It prevents scale buildup by suspending minerals into the stream and gradually dissolves existing scale and iron deposits. By eliminating scale, Parafos® improves the efficiency of your system and reduces energy costs.
Parafos® forms a monomolecular film on the waterside of metal plumbing surfaces. This protective barrier alleviates many of the problems associated with corrosion and pinhole leaks.
Colourless, odorless and tasteless, Parafos® is NSF and CFIA approved safe for human consumption and environmental discharge.
Certified Safe for all Systems – Parafos® is tested and certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) and Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).
