Pool Construction Tips

Hi, I'm Mandy. If you're looking for tips on pool construction, you've come to the right place. We've just had a new pool installed and I'm full of advice! When I started on our pool I thought it would be an easy build. Boy, was I wrong. I didn't know anything about building a pool apart from the fact I wanted one. Luckily, our construction company set me straight. They helped me work out how big the pool could be and they showed me which shape would suit our yard space. They sorted out permits and even gave me advice on fencing. To find out what I learned, read through my blog. Hope it helps!

How safe is your air conditioning system?

by Bessie Beck

Looking after your industrial cooling towers is vital to the correct performance of your business air cooling system. The cooling tower needs to be maintained effectively to keep the condenser temperature at the right level, and to avoid it becoming a health risk. If you own a building that has a cooling tower, then you have a legal obligation to ensure the cooling tower is being maintained properly. You must be able to demonstrate that you have developed and implemented a scheduled maintenance regime to ensure that the cooling tower is working correctly and does not present a danger to your employees or the public.

Here are three simple steps you can take to make sure the maintenance of your industrial cooling towers is up to date and that your air conditioning remains safe.

Check the airflow

One of the most common reasons for a lack of operational efficiency, poor fan performance and even system failure is poor airflow. Poor airflow in industrial cooling towers can be caused by incorrect fan alignment, poor maintenance of the gearbox, loose components or damage to the fan blades. You should check the system regularly to ensure that nothing is loose and that the fan is undamaged and correctly aligned. You should also take the time to examine the basin floor and see if there is a build up of sludge that could be reducing the airflow.

Clear your tubes

When first installed, your air conditioning will allow the air to flow freely but it doesn't take long before a variety of contaminants, such as slime and mud, start to build up in your chiller tubes. If left too long, this slime will start to clog up the system. It is advisable that you call in a specialist to help regularly and completely clear your tubes to ensure that everything is running as it should.

Check for scale build-up

The nature of industrial cooling towers means that they are prone to deposits of scale forming. As limescale builds up, it reduces the efficiency of your air conditioning and may result in premature deterioration of the system. Regular descaling can help to improve the systems energy conservation and reduce your energy bills.

Instigate a regular maintenance routine and arrange for frequent servicing from a professional company with experience with industrial cooling towers. This is the most effective way to ensure that your air conditioning system operates at maximum efficiency and remains safe from dangerous bacteria and contamination.
