While you are showing them pictures also show them the increased utility costs.  Worked for me.

Hi All:

I have a couple of hold-outs who insist on using one-pass water in reflux condensers and the like. The "California is in constant drought" argument gets me nowhere.

So I'm looking for flooding incidents when the tubing popped off the condenser and flooded the lab or building, etc. Images would be awesome.

Thanks!

Best,

Debbie
