Ecolab came up with a scam. Its is called "Apex". They say if you use the product and the system, that your electric and water use will go down. It does not work. They tried to sell it to a large restaurant chain. Before the customer would buy it, they connected meters to all the water and electric. Measured the use and then installed the system. After six months of test, Ecolab had to refund the customer thirty-seven thousand dollars. The system does not work and they know this. Most of the customers that do fall for the scam have the product removed with in the first 3 months. They have made or rip people off by millions of dollars, "mom and pops", corporate customers, goverment facilities, yes the public are paying for this scam. I was fired for not selling the system and blowing the whistle.

I like to use the toilet bowl example. If I install a meter on your master bedroom toilet, and one on your quest bath and came back in a month. What would we find. You flushed your MB toilet 111 times and the quest bath 10 times. What does that mean? You flushed 3.7 times a day and had 10 quest one day or 1 quest 10 times or 2 quest 5 times. You get it. Now, I am going to continue reading the meter each month and if you start using my bathroom cleaner, buying my bath mat, my products, we are going to save you water and electric.

How can you save me water? Its smoke and mirrors and that is how the product is referred to in the company.
