Have you ever thought about what our water treatment control equipment allows us to do? Yes, it feeds our products and bleeds the system, but what it really does is allow us to go home! If we did not have something monitoring our program 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, we would have very different job. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to sleep in a mechanical room! It is for this reason that I want the Scaling UP! Nation! to focus on understanding what they are using to control their water treatment programs.
With this in mind, if you know of a mistake that you could make, wouldn’t you want to know about it before you made it? I would. This way I wouldn’t make that mistake, I would be free to make another. In this scenario two things happened, 1. I avoided a mistake and afforded myself less time on the job site and 2. I learned something from the “new” mistake I just make. And Folks, if you are not making mistakes, you are not working hard enough or working outside of your comfort zone. To also clarify, these are new mistakes, not the same ones over and over again, that just proves you are not learning.
Who can you align yourself with, so you can find out how to resolve mistakes or even better, what mistakes not to make in the first place? Answer: It’s you friendly neighborhood equipment vendor. The people that distribute your water treatment equipment are a great resource for learning items such as these. How well do you know these people? And, are you really using your relationship with them properly?
Our guest today is Laith Charles of Pulsafeeder. Laith and I met though the Association of Water Technologies and have gotten to know each other since that time. Laith is an electrical engineer and an expert on Pulsafeeder equipment. On today’s episode, we will learn about some new items Pulsafeeder has for all of us, as well as, some tips, tricks and common mistakes water treaters do. All designed to save you time in the field and make you a better water treater.
