Controlling the temperature of your building’s water system is essential to preventing the proliferation of bacteria and water contamination. We have designed a health monitoring solution to check the quality of water in the system.
Health risks related to hot water systems
The temperature of the hot water supplied to buildings is a key factor in the growth of bacteria. This risk is increased if the water stands for too long. One of the best known bacteria is the legionella bacteria known as “Legionellosis”. It is present in the natural environment and can proliferate in artificial water sites, particularly at temperatures between 25 and 55 °C. It affects an average of 1,400 people each year but this figure has been increasing since 2018. This bacterium is fatal in 10% of cases.
A public health issue
As a building manager, you have a responsibility to limit the risk of bacterial growth and so ensure the safety and good health of building occupants. In France, you are also obliged to apply the provisions defined by the Order of February 1st, 2010 on the monitoring of legionellosis. The latter sets out the technical requirements applicable to collective installations for the production, storage and distribution of hot water for health, social and medico-social establishments, hotels, tourist accommodation, campsites and other establishments receiving the public.
Our solution: essential for health monitoring
Birdz has designed an offer to monitor the temperature of domestic hot water networks. A system of sensors is used to prevent the risk of microbiological proliferation and to issue an alert if necessary. This installation monitoring system ensures a first level of safety and comfort to protect the health of occupants.
Our end-to-end integrated package is aimed mainly at the tertiary sector, building managers and technical facilities managers. The range of sensors and technologies we use enables us to adapt to all physical configurations of the installations in place.
