Get the Copper Silver Ionization Solution That’s Built for Potable Water Treatment
CSIDefender® copper silver ionization (CSI) legionella growth prevention solutions are designed, engineered, and built for buildings with low, medium and high daily potable water usage. These innovative technologies are significantly more powerful, engineered completely differently, and are intended for facility potable water treatment rather than swimming pools
That’s why, when investigating alternatives and comparing the engineering requirements for your buildings, you should always ensure you are choosing a commercial, medical or military type CSI solution with the power and performance you need.
Why Are CSI Solutions Designed for Swimming Pools Ineffective for Facility Potable Water Treatment?
Most alternative CSI solutions are only effective for treating relatively small quantities of somewhat stagnant non-potable water on a daily basis. The relative swimming pool water usage load compared to a facility potable water usage is dramatically smaller. These types of non-commercial CSI units are not designed to be effective across the entire water distribution system, meaning they lack the power, performance, and available alloy required for larger installations. If installed within a facility’s potable water distribution network, they have been known to have performance issues and quickly fail, leaving you without any means of controlling legionella bacteria growth and putting your building occupants at risk.
That’s why, when making a decision about which solution to install, you should always look for commercial grade technologies such as the CSIDefender®. These solutions are proven and reliable Legionella growth control technologies.
