Water treatment is a critical element in any facility’s building’s maintenance plan, and failure to properly manage waterborne risks can lead to hazardous conditions and even premature equipment failure. Most business owners and facility managers don’t spend too much time thinking about how to take care of the water that their facility uses every day.
However, cooling towers, chillers, boilers, processes, and other equipment that rely on water all require regular maintenance to make sure that everything is operating safely and efficiently. That’s why working with an experienced water treatment professional in Boston is essential.
Boston Water Treatment and The Risks Of Failure
Throughout Massachusetts, there is a need for water systems to be regularly tested and maintained. For buildings with cooling towers and other water-central equipment, it is imperative that water treatment is instituted.
These processes aren’t just about making sure your water is clean so that the machinery runs efficiently, but it is also the “insurance policy” that your equipment will last its useful life. Water treatment also ensures your system will be safe from dangerous bacteria.
Although Boston does not yet require that cooling towers, condensers, and other similar equipment be tested regularly for Legionella, a hazardous bacteria that can be life-threatening to humans, you should still be proactive. All it takes to contract Legionella is exposure to water droplets floating through the air containing this bacteria.
Did you know that airborne water drops can travel for miles from their point of origin? This means that a cooling tower that hasn’t been treated properly for Legionella could be making people sick miles from its location.
Tower Water takes this risk seriously, and if your buildings’ cooling tower contains this harmful bacteria, it could be considered negligence that your systems are not properly evaluated for this risk. In other cities, those with confirmed Legionella in the water could be fined or shut down until the problem is resolved, leading to loss in business income and opportunities.
The best way to avoid problems with Legionella while simultaneously keeping your systems in good health is to proactively work with an experienced water treatment service provider. The professionals at Tower Water can help you handle the task of testing and treatment so you can focus your attention on other business matters.
Choosing The Right Expert
Finding a company that you can trust to handle the critical task of handling your building’s water treatment system is important. The best water treatment pros will have years of experience, specifically in industrial or commercial settings, as well as knowledge of any local or state regulations to keep you in compliance.
They will also have an established relationship with a reputable testing facility that can give you a detailed breakdown of what’s in your water. This ensures that you can craft an effective water treatment plan.
Tower Water is growing in the greater Boston area. They are an established leader in the water treatment industry, tackling issues ranging from Legionella, to developing programs to mitigate corrosion and scale, and providing specialty pipe cleanings for new construction HVAC systems.
Make sure that you choose to work with an expert who offers personalized and unique strategies that are specific to your building. A cookie-cutter approach doesn’t work when it comes to mitigating the many issues that can arise in cooling systems. Your water is unique to your facility.
