Reduce The Risk Of Legionella In Your Remote Sports Changing Facilities
As sports facilities continue to reopen following the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring the safety of athletes and staff is more important than ever. One major concern for sports facilities is the risk of Legionella bacteria in remote sports changing rooms. Legionella is a type of bacteria that can cause a severe form of pneumonia called Legionnaires’ disease, which can be deadly. In this blog, we’ll explore how the Challis WMS water management system and its wireless cloud-based remote monitoring control and duty flushing capability can significantly reduce the risk of Legionella in remote sports changing rooms.
The Risks of Legionella in Sports Facilities
Legionella bacteria thrive in warm water environments, such as those found in hot tubs, spas, cooling towers, and large plumbing systems. Sports facilities, including changing rooms, showers, and locker rooms, can provide ideal breeding grounds for Legionella if proper water management practices are not in place. Inadequate water circulation, infrequent cleaning and maintenance, and inconsistent water temperatures can all contribute to the growth of Legionella bacteria.
The potential consequences of a Legionella outbreak in a sports facility can be severe, including serious illness and even death. In addition to the human toll, a Legionella outbreak can also lead to legal and financial consequences for the sports facility, including lawsuits and reputational damage.
The Challis WMS Water Management System
The Challis WMS water management system is a comprehensive solution designed to help sports facilities manage their water systems and reduce the risk of Legionella. The system uses wireless cloud-based technology to monitor and control water temperature, flow rates, and other key factors that contribute to the growth of Legionella bacteria.
The system consists of wireless taps and showers and other devices throughout the water system. The sensors monitor key factors such as usage, water temperature, flow rate, and transmit this data back to the central gateway in real-time.
The Challis WMS system also includes a duty flushing capability, which allows facility managers to schedule regular flushing of the water system to help prevent the growth of Legionella bacteria. Duty flushing involves running water through the system at a high flow rate to help remove any stagnant water that may be harboring Legionella bacteria.
The Benefits of the Challis WMS System
The Challis WMS system offers several key benefits for sports facilities looking to reduce the risk of Legionella bacteria in their water systems. First, the system provides real-time monitoring and control of key water system parameters, allowing facility managers to quickly identify and address any issues that may arise. This proactive approach can help prevent the growth of Legionella bacteria before it becomes a problem.
The wireless cloud-based technology used by the Challis WMS system also allows for remote monitoring and control of the water system. This means that facility managers can access the system from anywhere with an internet connection, allowing them to monitor and adjust the water system as needed even when they are not on site.
The duty flushing capability of the Challis WMS system is also a key feature for reducing the risk of Legionella bacteria. Regular flushing of the water system can help prevent stagnant water from accumulating, reducing the potential for Legionella growth. The Challis WMS system allows facility managers to schedule duty flushing at regular intervals, ensuring that this important task is not overlooked.
The risk of Legionella bacteria in sports facilities, including remote sports changing rooms, is a serious concern. Proper water management practices, including real-time monitoring and control of key water system parameters and regular duty flushing, are essential for reducing this risk.
