Its another scorching summer day in Sacramento. The local weather forecaster is calling for yet another 103°F day the fourth time this week. The phone starts ringing people from all parts of the building are calling to tell you that the air conditioning system is broken (again). With a heavy sigh, you grab your tool belt and head outside to check on the chiller. Outside, an idle chiller and a slimy, scale-encrusted cooling tower greet you. As you look over the system, the words of the cooling tower salesman echo in your head once again, Remember to keep up on your water treatment program.
