At Danco, we understand how important it is for industries like property management, health care, education, and retirement to have a water management program designed to prevent the emergence of Legionellosis. With our experience and expertise, we develop a program that ensures you meet ASHRAE Standard 188.
We Put Legionella Management First
It’s absolutely critical that building owners and water treatment providers meet ASHRAE Standard 188. You have the responsibility to meet these standards and provide safe, healthy water to those who work or live in your facility. To reduce the liability of building owners and operators in cases of disease outbreak, you must have verified, documented adherence to Standard 188.
What Makes Up an Effective Water Management Program?
To ensure that your facility meets the standards of ASHRAE Standard 188, Danco can serve as your program team, responsible for water management program development and implementation. From there, we’ll help you along as you take the following steps.
1. Determine Water System Plans
The Program Team will determine the potable and non-potable water systems at your facility and develop plans for your water management system.
2. Analyze Building Water Systems
We will conduct a comprehensive analysis to detect any hazardous conditions in your building’s water system.
3. Identify Control Locations
For monitoring purposes, we will identify locations in the water system where control measures are required.
4. Set Control Measures
Once control locations are identified, we will determine control measures to be applied at those locations.
5. Establish Control Limits
Control measures at each location require set limits. We will determine limits such as maximum value, minimum value, and ranges in which a chemical or physical parameter must be monitored and maintained at an acceptable level.
6. Monitor & Take Corrective Actions
After all control limits are set, we will perform ongoing monitoring to ensure the water management program stays within control limits. If results fall outside of the set limits, the appropriate corrective actions will be taken.
7. Verify Program Implementation
Once the program is implemented, we’ll establish procedures to confirm that the water management program is being implemented as designed.
8. Confirm Program Efficiency
When we’ve verified your program’s implementation, our team will validate that program is effective at controlling hazardous conditions.
9. Conduct Documentation & Bookkeeping
Finally, the Danco team will keep a record of all procedures and maintain ongoing documentation as necessary.
If your facility needs testing for wastewater, deposits, microbiology, or just strict water testing, Danco can help. Find out how our analytical services can keep your facility running smoothly, year after year.
