What is Legionella and how is it controlled in DHW systems? (with Kevin Freidt)

What is Legionella and how is it controlled in DHW systems? (with Kevin Freidt)

Greg and Dan welcome Kevin Freidt, Caleffi Director Product Management & Technical Support (a..k.a. The Dr. of Disinfection) to the microphone.  They explore the fascinating topic of Legionella bacteria and its impact in domestic hot water systems.  Kevin starts with "bug basics":  where does the bacteria originate, when is it dangerous, what causes it to proliferate and how is it contained?  He discusses dead legs in potable water piping systems and explains how water becomes "old."  Not familiar with the ASHRAE 188 Standard?  Take note!  It's an important reference guide.  The Ask Caleffi Team completes this podcast with an interesting discussion on how we can ensure safety in our water systems.  

Thanks for tuning in!
