Triple Clear Water Solutions suggests properties start by planning early. When reopening an under-occupied building, a systematic building flush should begin at least five days before a planned opening.
As every state across the country begins to reopen and find a new normal, providing clean drinking water should be a top priority.
Water filtration experts from Triple Clear Water Solutions, a leader in commercial water filtration with patented technologies that deliver safe, clean and filtered water, warn that the chance of bacteria growth, including E. coli and legionella, as well as metal contaminants like iron and lead entering your drinking water are a possibility, and need to be properly handled before welcoming people back.
Here are the tips once again from Triple Clear:
– Start planning early. When reopening an under-occupied building, a systematic building flush should begin at least five days before your planned opening.
– Do a full audit of the property. This includes checking the status of all domestic water and mechanical equipment, understanding the building occupants, and reviewing their plan to re-occupy.
– Do a risk analysis at the full building level. Now is the time to test, test, test – it’s crucial to understand where the concerns lie building-wide so that you can address any issues before reopening.
– Consider installing or updating filtration. At a time when there are many unknowns, installing a filter at the point of entry or point of use delivers peace of mind, acting as a firewall against harmful contaminants.
– Keep your records updated at the building level. Flow rates, water temperatures, treatment cycles, and filter maintenance are just a few areas to target when updating your team’s water management program.
