4 steps to optimal drinking water hygiene

Drinking water hygiene is important and affects both our well-being and our health. Therefore, drinking water installations in buildings must be carefully planned, built and operated. GF Piping Systems provides systems and products which contribute in a simple and efficient way to an optimal drinking water hygiene in large buildings like hotels, retirement homes, hospitals, sport facilities and apartment buildings.

The integral drinking water hygiene concept of GF Piping Systems comprises four areas: Prevention, monitoring, intervention and risk assessment. This approach to secure drinking water hygiene offers numerous advantages, especially for existing properties because their given condition can be considered when restoring high-quality drinking water. As refurbishments are executed in stages, preventive measures can often be carried out only occasionally. Thermal or chemical disinfection, on the other hand, are ideal in terms of intervention.

Prevention

With the phrase "better safe than sorry" in mind, we ensure to improve the drinking water quality in a preventive manner during the use. Specific installation concepts and measures are applied.
  • Drinking water systems with no dead legs (full bore)
  • Constant thermal-hydraulic balancing 
  • Drinking water exchange (flushing)
  • Avoidance of limestone formation, corrosion and biofilm formation

Hycleen Automation System

The optimal temperature for drinking water, the regular flushing or exchange of drinking water and the sanitary design of valves and pipes are the most essential preventive measures to avoid bacterial growth and Legionella. GF Hycleen Automation System integrates it all in one concept.
  • Automatic and configurable thermal-hydraulic balancing
  • Automatic and configurable flushing
  • Automatic detection of the valves types and valve IDs
  • Simple and clear programming of the system parameters 
  • Sanitary design of the control valves
  • Simple dimensioning without difficult calculations for balancing
  • Configurable leakage flow
  • Automated cleaning cycle for the control valves

JRG Sanipex MT

In piping installations for drinking water, it is crucial to prevent the formation of biofilm and bacterial growth (such as Legionella). The choice of piping material and the connections between the piping components are important to avoid limestone formation and incrustations, and to give corrosion no chance. GF Sanipex MT combines all of these critical criteria in one system.
  • High-quality and corrosion-free plastic piping system 
  • Multilayer pipe and connections with smooth inner pipe surfaces
  • Sanitary full-bore design with no dead legs

INSTAFLEX

In piping installations for drinking water, it is crucial to prevent the formation of biofilm and bacterial growth (such as Legionella). The choice of piping material and the connections between the piping components are important to avoid limestone formation and incrustations, and to give corrosion no chance. GF Instaflex combines all of these critical criteria in one system.
  • High-quality and corrosion-free plastic piping system 
  • Pipe and connections with smooth inner pipe surfaces
  • Sanitary electrofusion connections with full-bore design and no dead legs
  • Point of use fittings with water circulation loop design

JRG LegioStop

Valves are crucial and commonly used components in a drinking water installation. The sanitary design of the GF Legiostop valves is ideal to contribute to an optimal drinking water quality.
  • Valve body in high-quality and corrosion-resistant bronze
  • Valve stem and seat in high-quality stainless steel
  • Full-bore design with no dead legs or crevices
  • Design that prevents incrustation and limestone formation
  • Complete separation between drinking water and operating mechanism

Monitoring

Water stagnation and unadapted temperatures can lead to hazardous microbial contamination (e.g. Legionella) and bacterial growth.  Continuous monitoring of the drinking water installation and its essential parameters ensures that drinking water hygiene remains at a high level. 
  • Temperature monitoring
  • Sampling of the bacteria count
  • Sampling of the pathogenic bacteria

Hycleen Automation System

The optimal temperature for drinking water and the regular flushing or exchange of drinking water are vital criteria for healthy drinking water. It is important to carefully monitor these criteria to allow quick and efficient adjustments. GF Hycleen Automation System integrates it all in one concept.
  • Continuous logging and monitoring of the temperatures through the Master monitor
  • Automatically generated and exportable reports
  • Automatic detection of the valves types and valve IDs
  • Simple and clear programming of the system parameters
  • Monitoring also possible via simple connection to PC, GTC, tablet and smartphone

Hycleen Des 30

When chemical disinfection of drinking water is needed or desired, the GF Hycleen Des30 unit which uses water and (high purity) salt, is without any doubt one of the safest and most efficient disinfection solutions available. The monitoring of the drinking water quality is important, both in an everyday situation as during an intervention.
  • Monitoring of drinking water quality by means of sampling
  • Monitoring of chlorine concentration

Intervention

When high microbe counts or pathogens are detected in the drinking water sample, it can usually be attributed to not following the preventative measures. Deploying interventions should be used only as a last resort to ensure high quality drinking water.
  • Thermal disinfection
  • Chemical disinfection

Hycleen Des 30

It is always better to be safe than sorry. However, in some cases, intervention is necessary when microbiological contamination does get detected in the drinking water. Chemical disinfection can be an efficient and necessary method to solve this. GF Hycleen Des30 makes sure our drinking water is again up to the safest level.
  • Highly efficient disinfection solution against bacteria – smallest amounts are sufficient
  • Disinfectant approved to EU Biocides Regulation
  • Depot effect in the entire drinking water system
  • No development of resistance in microorganisms
  • Reduction of biofilms
  • No microbiological induced corrosion
  • No transport/no storage of dangerous chemicals, environmental friendly

GF Hycleen Automation System makes sure our drinking water is again up to the safest level.
  • Simple and configurable thermal disinfection procedure
  • Clear visualisation and automatic logging/monitoring of the thermal disinfection procedure

Risk assessment

When changes occur in the use of buildings (and its drinking water installations), or in case adjustments are made by the water suppliers, it is recommended to perform a reassessment of the drinking water hygiene and, if needed, to adjust some of the parameters.
  • Evaluation based on the monitoring of temperature and flow
  • Evaluation based on sampling
  • Intervention possibilities through Hycleen Automation System (flushing, thermal disinfection) and Hycleen Des30 (chemical disinfection)
