Thorough water disinfection ensures that pathogens such as legionella or coli bacteria are killed. Bacteria or germs in drinking water are often underestimated. The danger they pose is enormous. Only careful water disinfection ensures the safety of drinking water. The diversity of pathogens is high. Among the germs in drinking water, some are considered particularly persistent. Consuming germ infected drinking water can lead to serious illness or even death. Especially on hot summer days, pathogens such as legionella multiply rapidly. The risk of infection by germs is increased, especially in warm holiday regions. In such instances, one should pay particular attention and inquire whether continuous water disinfection is carried out.
Wet germs multiply particularly well in water. Aside of legionella, the best known bacteria are pseudomonads, coli bacteria and enterococci. Legionella are rod-shaped bacteria that mainly multiply in hot water systems. These drinking water germs feel most comfortable at water temperatures of 20 to 50 degrees Celsius. Pseudomonads are cold water germs. These are mainly found in stagnant water, older piping systems or weakly flowing pipelines. Coli bacteria and enterococci are intestinal pathogens that are very dangerous to human health when consumed in high concentrations. With all germs in drinking water, there is an increased risk for immunocompromised people as well as children and babies.
Water disinfection should not be carried out only in an emergency. Whether in private households or in public institutions: A test by water sampling should be used regularly. This provides information about the quality of your drinking or service water and prevents diseases caused by germs in drinking water. It is also advisable for companies with high water consumption to carry out permanent water disinfection.
