Tenants magazine AT HOME: Stadtsiedlung Heilbronn with WATERcontrol active against Legionella

In August 2016 the residential property company Stadtsiedlung Heilbronn gave us the job of legionella testing in their drinking water installations. The current issue of their resident's magazine AT HOME gives a short summary of the collaboration of our two firms to deal with the problem of potable water contaminated with legionella. The article includes a check list for house owners and tenants what they can do to minimize the risk of biofilm growth in the domestic piping system.

From September to November 2016 we have checked 250 central heating boilers supplying more than 2.500 rental units with warm water. 600 samples were drawn and tested for legionella contamination. Just a few times the timit of 100 colony forming units was exceeded.

The project had a few additional requirements for us: we were asked to implement a data port in cooperation with another IT service provider in order to import the data (on samplings and results) in the ERP-Software of the housing company. Of course, we did the job to our customer's full satisfaction.

Safety at your petrol station: drinking and auto wash water need to be checked for legionella

Petrol stations are not entirely safe places to visit. Auto tanks are filled with flammable or explosive fuel such as petrol, diesel or methane. Additionally, a petrol station is always busy with car traffic. Due to these increased risiks station operators have a strong sense for safety. Due to current studies a new hazard arises: water vapour.

Gas leak detection with GAS-Control

WATERcontrol has evolved from the "big sister" GAS-Control GmbH, a specialist for preventive gas safety checks within builidngs. GAS-Control has worked for the German housing industry for 25 years.

To detect gas leakages, even on concealed lines, the firm operates with portable gas leak detectors that pinpoint tracers of natural gas where they escape from the pipe.
