 We have seen treatment tank life
extended by six to ten fold (e.g., from
replacement once a month to less than
twice a year).  Of course, there is a
corresponding reduction in the waste
treatment and disposal cost, or
recycling costs, as well as the cost of
new chemicals for the treatment tank."

"critical" rinses where you can afford
not to have perfectly clean water.
