No dH2O in the PRB

If you ever do, please ensure that when The Lowest Bidder contractor says that he can install a building-wide house system for making & recirculating distilled water, THAT HE ACTUALLY CAN DO IT!!!!!

My new job is in a brand-new building, but my boss had to spend $$$Thousands out of his start-up funding for a Milli-Q Gradient unit (18 MegaOhm) and a Millipore Elix (15 MOhm) and resevoir tank in place of the much-promised house distilled system that probably never will be.

I speculated that we were the contractor's learning experience so that now he can try to do high-rise hotel hot water supplies, which work on the same principle of a constantly-circulating loop of freshly-treated water that the individual taps draw from at need.

18 meg water? Why that's pure enough to restore virginity. I am duly impressed!

And it could be yours, too, for the measley price of $8,517.14, through Fisher Scientific.

Their discount for OSU takes it down to $6,975.71, which is probably about what my boss paid for it last year.

This does not count the several hundred dollars every 180 days for a new set of filters, cartridges and other consumables.

This is only for the Milli-Q Gradient final unit that polishes the water to the 18 MegaOhms/cm. I haven't priced out the set of Elix etc. upstream of the Gradient.
