Tap Water Chilling in Chile is very important to the health of the average resident. If you are not familiar with the process then it is basically the same as it is anywhere else in the world. Essentially, water is brought to a temperature below that of the atmospheric pressure, usually minus zero, and is forced through piping to be cooled. Chilled water is used for drinking, cooking, bathing, cleaning, laundry and any other household chores related to cold water. There are two types of water chillers, electrical or gas, depending on your convenience and budget.
This type of water heater is connected to an electrical panel which has pipes that run down the outside of the house to a main distribution point in the city. The entire process of water removal, purification and chilling is under the guidance of an engineer or technician. This system is most efficient when using a chlorine water reagent. The cost is high, but it will save thousands of liters of water ever
