The SeaQuest Solution
Using SeaQuest keeps the system clean and keeps corrosion under control. The result is less red / black water complaints, which reduces the need for flushing. Free chlorine residuals are increased, which further reduces the amount of biofilm and the need for flushing.
When flushing does occur (typically to comply with fire hydrant regulations), clean water is produced almost immediately. As a result, using SeaQuest allows for significant water savings from reduced flushing.
What leads to Excessive Flushing ?
Excess flushing is typically a symptom of water quality issues. Red water caused by corrosion, black water caused by improper sequestering of manganese, and the growth of biofilm are common issues resulting in the need to clean the system out by flushing.
Flushing does not address the root cause of these conditions and results in significant wasted water.
