“The proof of the pudding is in the eating”
This is said to mean that you can only judge the quality of something after you have tried, used or experienced it.
Water leaks on supermarket chillers.
The cost impact of a blocked condensate is as follows:
- Engineer call out
2. Absorbent strip

6. Customer perception
Using the first two only, as these costs are easily measured.

The call outs before, and after the installation of Gel-clear tablets were recorded.
All data used is from a live client site on a major U.K. retailers’ store.
Before using Gel-clear, the average annual spend on absorbent strips for the branch was £2400.
