Water is a valuable resource and should never be intentionally wasted. By design, booth systems are supposed to recirculate the contained water over and over again, using fresh make-up water to replace that lost through evaporation and sludge removal. A well run recirculating booth system will recycle the water as much as possible until water chemistry limits begin to exceed values set by the chemical treatment company. Unknown or undesired losses of excessive water can sometimes be traced to a system mechanical issue – such as a broken level control or booth start-up procedures that cause excess water to flood the system. Water unnecessarily going to drain is the same as $ leaving the plant’s pocket.
