2006 - Water Pressure Problems

Sent: Wednesday, December 13, 2006 9:44 PM
Subject: Re: Water Pressure Problem

When we took over an existing brewery in Fresno, we were also faced with very low water pressure. (Our unit was at the end of a long line of businesses in an ancient strip mall. Each business subbed off their water, and we got what was left at the end.)

We solved it by putting in a reservoir in a closet. The water for the brewery and restaurant came out of the reservoir at normal water pressure. The beauty of the system was that we could soften and filter the water before it went into the reservoir, and our restaurant's coffee, soda, ice, and tap water were the best tasting in Fresno.

Dennis Poore of the Waterman Co. is golden, and he put everything together. I would not set up a new brewery's water system anywhere without him. (He'll fly wherever.) He's awesome. This is the contact info I found when I googled him:
