Legionaries Disease

LEGIONNAIRE DISEASE

Legionnaires disease, or Legeionellosis, is caused by "Legionella pneumophila, a ubiquitous aquatic organism that thrives in warm environments." It was identified after 34 Veterans died after attending an American Legion Convention in the Bellevue-Stratford Hotel in Philadelphia in 1976. 

This is a type of pneumonia caused by bacteria. You usually get it by breathing in the mist from hot water that contains the bacteria. The mist may come from bathtubs, showers, hot tubs this bacteria can be found in water heaters where low HEAT temputures are present. 

WHAT CAN I DO? 

Prevention is the number one cure, keep your water heater temperture set above 125 degrees and service your water heater once a year in the Sacramento area by flushing your water heater tank, see additional prevention below.

         -SOLUTION-

 

PREVENTION OF LEGIONELLA BACTERIA

  • Allows your water heater to be set at 140℉, minimizing risk of Legionella bacteria in the tank.

  • Mixes hot output with cold supply, for greater effective hot water storage, more hot water on demand.

  • Adjustable temperature control limits output to 120℉ to prevent risk of scalding.

  • Integrated recirculation port simplifies installation.

  • Optional temperature gauge available.

  • Available installation kit includes ProPush flexible connectors to easily connect to Copper, CPVC or PEX piping.
