The Oxford Hotel

oxford hotelThe Oxford Hotel was built in 1891 and is Denver’s oldest hotel. The Oxford replaced its traditional chemical water treatment system with Silver Bullet in April 2011. The goal of the installation was to use Silver Bullet to ensure that the hotel’s cooling tower remained safe and clean without the use of harsh or toxic chemicals.

Within the first two days of installation, the water was so clear that building engineers were able to see the bottom of the water basin, something that had never happened with previous chemical treatments as the water “was always murky”. Silver Bullet was able to increase the cycles of concentration from 3 to 8, saving on average 19% overall water usage. Silver Bullet also eliminated scaling, leading to a 20% savings in energy use because the system was running much more efficiently.

Hear what Building Engineer, Michael Michna, has to say about the Silver Bullet Water Treatment system:
