Subject: Chiller Almost Empty 

The chiller was making funny noises (tens of seconds time scale brief grating type noises - like if you took a piece of paper and let it touch a high speed fan). It was also below the "min fill level" line for water. I watered the thirsty beast and it is now quiet.

We may have been running the PSL with the chiller underfilled. I have been keeping it off lately for other reasons (the filters), though no longer feel the need to do so after talking to some people (Anamaria) about what they do at LHO. We may want to eventually change them, but we don't need DI water for the chiller.

 

I think it is fine to turn the PSL back on.
