Treasure Island Casino had recently purchased a triplex softener system and was asked to be a test site for Culligan’s MVP controller. The customer was interested in the new controller because it offered the ease of programming; with the push of a button, all of the softeners take on the same setting. Treasure Island had a relatively new softener system with older controls, so as part of the field test, we upgraded the Treasure Island system with MVP (in 2002).
Culligan offered Treasure Island Casino the opportunity to, once again, be a test site – this time, for Culligan’s new brine reclaim kit. Mike would be able to try the product for 3 months, and Culligan predicted a 30% savings in salt. The testing began in the summer of 2006.
The hotel area of Treasure Island Casino uses 31,000 lbs. of salt per year. They’re considering putting brine reclaim on the hotel softener, as well, which would result in a total savings of approximately $2,000 annually.
The brine reclaim system will pay for itself in 2 years.
