remote water TEMPERATURE monitoring
Legionnaire’s disease is not contagious, although it can be fatal by causing a form of pneumonia. It is formed from an infection by Legionella bacteria found in water and soil. High risk systems can include cooling towers, steamers, showers, baths, air conditioning units and much more.
Reducing the risk of Legionnaire’s disease and Legionella with water systems can best be achieved using temperature monitoring and control. As Legionella thrives between 20°C – 45°C best practice should be to ensure the following temperatures are maintained at all times. Hot water should be stored above 60°C, Cold water should be kept below 20°C.
Water Health & Safety
Our IoT water temperature monitor is being successfully incorporated into healthy water system management by our partners in the FM and water safety/hygiene industry across numerous sectors including nursing and care homes, hospitals, offices, schools, universities, social housing and health and community centres. Providing 24/7 remote water temperature and flow monitoring of outflows and storage vessels in real time, our IoT device is designed with a fit and forget style approach, with alerts being raised on high-risk temperatures that could encourage growth of the legionella bacteria, enabling quick action to be taken.
