Getting back to work

Water Supply Flushing for Reopening Buildings

As buildings re-open that have had little to no water usage during the Stay at Home Order due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to DRAIN, FLUSH and in some cases disinfect the hot and cold-water systems to remove harmful contaminants.

Low water usage can contribute to bacterial growth, including Legionella which can cause a serious type of pneumonia called Legionnaires’ disease. It can also cause other water quality and public health issues due to the build-up of lead and copper in stagnant water that’s been collecting in older pipes and fixtures.
