Lombard, IL (PRWEB) May 31, 2014
LiquiTech, a provider of environmentally sustainable solutions for dependably clean water systems, today announced the release of a new corporate website. The new site, http://www.liquitech.com, features improved navigation, updated content and a new focus on monitoring and maintenance as a pillar of its copper silver ionization system.
“As an industry leader, LiquiTech believes the scrutiny in regards to safety for potable water should be just below that of blood transfusions,” said Tory Schira, Chief Operating Officer of LiquiTech. “All potable water treatment systems must be monitored and maintained in order to be effective. There is no such thing as ‘plug and play,’ and the lack of maintenance is a leading source of adverse events associated with waterborne pathogens.”
Schira said the secondary water treatment market suffers from a lack of accurate and accessible information online. He said the upgraded LiquiTech website will continually feature updated industry news for both current customers and those interested in seeking information on how best to protect a business and people against the costs associated with infections or disease caused by waterborne pathogens, especially the bacteria that cause Legionnaires’ disease. It will also feature a continuously updated map of outbreaks across the U.S., with links to news articles.
LiquiTech’s copper silver ionization system was the first to be registered by the United States EPA as being effective in the prevention and controlling of Legionella pneumophila in commercial potable water supplies (U.S. EPA Reg. No. 68250-1).
The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says an estimated 8,000 to 18,000 people are hospitalized with Legionnaires' disease each year in the U.S. Schira said the 18,000 confirmed Legionella cases reported each year to CDC represent a tiny percentage of the real number of cases. He said the number of Legionella cases misdiagnosed as pneumonia is closer to 600,000 per year.
“With a mortality rate of nearly 40%, Legionnaires’ disease continues to be among the deadliest preventable diseases known to us,” Schira said.
Headquartered in Lombard, Ill., LiquiTech provides medical grade water treatment to healthcare, hospitality, commercial, industrial and government facilities, with more than 1,400 water treatment installations spanning 10 countries. LiquiTech’s copper silver ionization technology is an effective solution for combating waterborne pathogens in an environmentally sustainable manner, without harmful chemical by-products or unintended consequences. LiquiTech’s proprietary Closed Loop Proportional Control (CLPC) technology is able to adjust itself based on changes in water consumption and quality thereby providing residual protection from Legionella and other waterborne pathogens. LiquiTech has a 20- year track record of providing medical grade water treatment, supported by more than 100 independent research studies. For more information, visit http://www.liquitech.com.
