Recognized Technology for the Control of Legionella
CSI technology has been proven and endorsed by some of the world’s most reputable organizations, including:
The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes “metal ionisation (copper and silver)” as an accepted technology for the eradication of Legionella.
Legionella: Guidelines for Drinking-water Quality, WHO (2004)
Legionella and the prevention of legionellosis (2007)
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognizes copper silver ionisation as a “control method designed to disinfect an entire water distribution system” for Legionella control and prevention.
Legionella : Drinking Water Fact Sheet, EPA, (2000)
Systems: Scientific Literature Review (2016)
OSHA technical manual on Legionnaire’s Disease, section III, states that facility water treatment to control Legionella growth includes “the use of metal ions such as copper or silver (which have a biocidal effect)
The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) released a new toolkit for building owners and managers that recognizes copper silver ionization technology as an effective means of Legionella growth prevention.
Developing a Water Management Program to Reduce Legionella Growth & Spread in Buildings, CDC (2017)
“CSA Z317.13.12” states that “Copper-silver ionization facility water treatment may be installed in DHW Loops to discourage growth of Legionella.”
