The Capital Athletic Club Dramatically Reduces Water Consumption With Installation of Xeros Award-Winning Laundry System

Sacramento's Premier Athletic Club Adopts Water Conservation Recommendations

MANCHESTER, NH--(Marketwired - Apr 29, 2014) - Xeros, the innovator of an ultra low water cleaning system, today announced that The Capital Athletic Club, Sacramento's premier full-service athletic facility, is using its Xeros Laundry System and has reduced water usage for laundry washed with this machine so far by nearly 50%.

California is facing the worst drought in the state's history and some cities are asking businesses to cut water use by 35%, a goal that is very difficult for many business owners to achieve. The Capital Athletic Club installation of the Xeros Laundry System, which uses polymer beads rather than water, has enabled it to markedly reduce water consumption while improving laundry cleaning quality and reducing costs.

The Capital Athletic Club is the premiere athletic facility in downtown Sacramento offering the best facility, equipment, amenities and service. The 52,000 square foot health club combines state-of-the-art fitness facilities with an unparalleled commitment to member service.

"This is the third year of record-low rainfall in California and we aim to do our part in water conservation," said Rick Leonard," executive director of The Capital Athletic Club. "Xeros' green and sustainable laundry system enables us to dramatically reduce our water, energy and detergent usage while delivering exceptional cleaning results for our members."

"This exciting technology shows tremendous promise," said William Allen, senior development engineer, Western Cooling Efficiency Center. "The energy savings are considerable and with widespread adoption it could significantly impact California's carbon emissions and general use of fossil fuels."

The Xeros Laundry System helps organizations, through the use of polymer bead technology, to deliver water, detergent and energy savings for a 'greener' clean. The patented, award-winning system uses up to 80% less water, up to 50% less energy, and approximately 50% less detergent, to deliver superior cleaning results as compared to traditional "soap and water" methods. By combining the beads' molecular structure with a proprietary detergent solution, dirt from soiled items is attracted and absorbed by the beads, producing cleaner results. The reusable beads have a lifespan of hundreds of washes before being collected and recycled for reintroduction into the polymer supply chain.

"Water conservation is a critical issue for California and the world. Our clients have experienced a reduction of up to nearly 80% in water usage with the Xeros Laundry System," said Jonathan Benjamin, president, Xeros North America. "With Xeros, The Capital Athletic Club is able to deal with this serious environmental issue while improving cleaning effectiveness, increasing the life of laundered garments and reducing costs."
