Intelligent washroom controls and water efficiency specialist, Cistermiser, has launched LinkThru, the groundbreaking temperature-monitoring platform that is set to change the way hospitals and healthcare facilities manage infection control.
Approved Code of Practice and Guidance L8 (fourth edition), published by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) in 2013 with technical guidance published separately in HSG274, states that all duty-holders, including employers, those in charge of premises and those with health and safety responsibilities for others, have a responsibility to manage and prevent the onset of Legionnnaires’ disease from potential legionella contamination of a building’s water systems.
The report seeks to combat legionella, a bacterial disease, in a practical manner by laying out a set of guidelines for those in a position of responsibility to follow.
Now Cistermiser has introduced a device to take this a step further. Using a specialist PropTech solution from Spica Technologies, LinkThru automatically checks the water temperature and flow activity in pipework systems every ten seconds, transmitting the results into a secure cloud application.
Users can quickly access the information from anywhere via a device such as a computer, tablet or smartphone and take corrective action if needed.
