  • Condenser water is exposed to contaminants from outside air, things like leaves, pollution and pigeons.
  • Algae can slime the condenser tube bundles reducing flow.
  • Sump and exposed water can freeze during cold weather operation.

  • The use of anti-freeze makes cold weather operation much safer.
