Throughout the NAFEM Show, anyone who stopped by the Server booth could see how much water is wasted by perpetual-flow dipper wells. The counter started at 8:30 Thursday morning and measured recirculated water through its faucet until 3 p.m. Saturday – a total 54.5 hours. With the flow rate set at about 40 gallons per hour – the average is between 30 and 60 gph – this display was designed to emulate a restaurant that operates 24/7.
Just during the three-day show, the dipper well symbolically sent 2,108 gallons of water down the drain. The slow trickle doesn’t seem like much when you look at it, but the math doesn’t lie – it adds up.
In comparison, even when changing the water out every hour, the ConserveWell™ used only 11.92 gallons during the same time period.
How is there such a staggering difference you ask?
The Drop-In ConserveWell™ needs only 28 ounces of water each time it’s changed out – as opposed to the dipper well that pumps out about 30 gallons or more per hour.
Still don’t believe it? Try one out for yourself and see just how much replacing one perpetual-flow dipper well can save your operation.
