Take, for example, a hotel in Washington, D.C. that traded biocide chemicals for Pathex filter media and hasn’t looked back:
Biofilm, scaling and corrosion were winning the battle in the cooling tower of a Washington, D.C.’s 10-story hotel. Resulting operational inefficiencies in the 200-ton cooling tower led to guests complaining about hot, muggy rooms.
An Aqua-Stream high-efficiency side-stream filter, fitted with Pathex antibacterial filter media, was installed. The Aqua-Stream efficiently filters suspended solids, and Pathex replaced the oxidizing chemical biocides that weren’t adequately killing bacteria in the cooling water.
Together, the products improved heat transfer efficiency, reduced water and energy consumption and decreased maintenance needs for the hotel – ultimately resulting in cooler, more comfortable rooms for hotel guests.
Cleaner air, cooler water and significant savings.

Already have a side-stream filter? Consider switching to Pathex filter media to boost the power of your filter. It’s a drop-in replacement for most sand and multi-media filter beds. Pathex kills bacteria on contact without using or leaching chemicals.
