“I remain a strong advocate of copper/silver disinfection for the effective and safe treatment of water and safety from waterborne pathogens, specifically, legionella, which is a serious health threat in every healthcare organization.

I also attest to the fact that LPCH has been free of the tested waterborne pathogens since LiquiTech unit has been installed at LPCH.”

70%

Of all water systems are contaminated with legionella

We help reduce the high cost of HAIs and bolster population health by targeting the root cause: drinking water.

Water security is one of the most pressing issues facing facility owners and managers across multiple sectors. That’s because a clean water supply is essential to ensuring the health and safety of those environments.

Point-of-Entry Filtration

LiquiTech's SAFETGARD® self-cleaning filtration system improves incoming water quality by removing sediment, corrosion, and biofilm deposits at the point of entry. Damage caused by sediment and iron-based corrosion particulates can be extremely expensive and time-consuming to repair. Our unique process starts with a sediment analysis to determine the right solution for your facility. Compared to traditional filtration technologies, LiquiTech's SAFETGARD system can save up to 90% more water and involves far less maintenance and inspection.

Waterborne Pathogens

Common waterborne pathogens and bacteria that pose a risk to your facility

Photo of Legionella

Legionella

Legionella is a bacteria found in both potable and nonpotable water systems that proliferates rapidly in warm water environments. Legionnaires' disease, the resulting condition of being affected by Legionella, is a severe, often lethal, form of pneumonia that affects up to an estimated 18,000 people in the United States each year.

Pseudomonas

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic pathogen commonly found in moist environments and plumbing systems that is a common source of infection such as pneumonia, urinary tract infections, sepsis, and multiple other ailments.

Mycobacteria

Mycobacteria is a bacteria found in water systems that is the cause of Nontuberculous Mycobacteria (NTM) disease as well as several other ailments. It proliferates rapidly in warm water environments and poses a threat when exposed to humans.

Stenotrophomonas

Stenotrophomonas maltophilia is a bacteria found in moist environments and plumbing systems and is the cause of a wide range of illnesses such as bacteremia, pulmonary infections, urinary tract infections, meningitis, and many others.

Cryptosporidium

Cryptosporidium, also known as "Crypto" is a bacteria found in water systems that is the cause of cryptosporidiosis as well as several other ailments. It is very resistant to chlorine, which is why it can survive for days even in properly chlorinated pools.

Giardia

Giardia lamblia is a waterborne parasite that lives in the intestine of infected humans or animals. You can become infected after accidentally swallowing the parasite or via contact with blood. Giardia have been proven to be extremely resistant to oxidant treatments such as chlorine.

Testimonials

“Potable water is the most common source of healthcare associated legionellosis. It was not until a copper silver ionization system was installed that we saw a precipitous decline in positive Legionella cultures. Potable water cultures, positive for Legionella, were reduced from 30% to less than 1%. Most importantly, we have not had a single case of hospital-acquired legionellosis for almost 20 years, since the system was installed, linked to potable water.”
