San Diego, California, March 11, 2015 – “In our old system, the reflector tubes rested directly on the support water. This allowed for perfectly level support along their length and frictionless rotation,” said Nicholas Kramer, the principal engineer. To eliminate evaporation while still maintaining the various advantages of a water-borne system the company looked to the waterbed. “We decided to install a barrier between the reflectors and the support basin to fully enclose the water,” Kramer continued. The barrier is a very thin plastic sheet that rests on the surface of the support water to isolate it from the outside air.
