What’s your Water Safety Management Plan?
Legionnaires’ disease in Charlestown, Ca
When immunocompromised patients or clients are using and drinking water from your system, mandatory quarterly water testing may not be enough to secure safety.
In this example, a Caton Woods resident was diagnosed with Legionnaires’ disease after using and drinking water from a system with low levels of the Legionella Bacteria and the consequences can be severe. Not only is death a possibility, but also heavy fines, penalties and bad press. In addition there are also the response costs: bottled water handouts, increased testing, and other associated emergency actions.
By installing point of use filtration as one part of your Water Safety Management Plan (WSMP), you can dramatically increase the safety of the tap water in your facility. Instead of discouraging showers, install AquaMedix wallshowers. For washing dishes, install AquaMedix faucets. Contact us for more information about how we can be an integral part of your WSMP!
