Protection From Pathogens
Legionella is a bacteria that thrives in warm-water environments, including plumbing and HVAC systems. When inhaled through a mist or vapor, it can lead to Legionnaires’ disease. This is a severe form of pneumonia that has a fatality rate of nearly 25%. Approximately 18,000 Americans contract this dangerous infection each year, with 99% of these cases traced to infected potable water systems.
Among the most common sources are cooling towers, drinking fountains, ice machines, whirlpools, showers, humidifiers and sinks. Hospitals, hotels and other properties with large concentrations of people often have the highest risk factors.
This threat is serious enough that the city and state of New York have passed laws regarding treatment of cooling towers and drinking water systems for healthcare facilities. These laws require property owners to obtain regular water samples and report the results to the health department. Complying with these regulations is crucial for public safety as well as avoiding legal consequences.

Our Advanced Methods
We utilize the copper silver ionization process to disinfect systems. This methodology has been clinically proven in numerous studies to be the most effective for preventing and remediating this form of bacterial infection. By introducing disinfectant ions into the plumbing infrastructure, any traces of Legionella living inside are neutralized.
Best of all, this technology utilizes no hazardous materials, is safe for consumption, and causes no damage to pipes or other equipment. Our solutions also include point-of-entry filtration, ultraviolet disinfection, and full testing and validation. We can evaluate your precise needs and prescribe only the solutions that are necessary.
