This whitepaper from Viega discusses the myriad of potential solutions that have been introduced to the market aimed at controlling or eliminating pathogens from plumbing systems.

These solutions range from on-site disinfection systems, like copper-silver ionization systems and chlorine dioxide generators, to hyperchlorinationand thermal disinfection.

One solution designers should not overlook is taking steps to reduce the risk of microbial growth in the first place. Sound system design should acknowledge the importance of minimizing microbial growth and focus effort on reducing colonization, not just treating a bacterial problem once it’s established and detected.
