Remote Temperature Monitoring

Safe, clean and fully compliant water systems are critical for us all

Legionnaires’ disease presents a significant risk in inadequately monitored and controlled water systems. It is contracted by inhaling airborne aerosolised water droplets that contain viable legionella bacteria.

Legionella bacteria multiply where temperatures are between 20-45°C and nutrients are available. The bacteria are dormant below 20°C and do not survive above 60°C.  In other words, to prevent legionella, it’s essential to keep hot water hot and cold water cold.

Further information can be found in the HSE document ‘Legionnaires’ disease. The control of legionella bacteria in water systems’, often referred to as ACOP L8, and in HSG274 part 2: ‘The control of legionella bacteria in hot and cold water systems’.  HTM 04-01 provides guidance on safe water in healthcare premises.

 

Remote temperature monitoring – the modern route to compliance

Traditional temperature monitoring methods can be expensive, time-consuming and labour intensive. In addition, there may be issues due to lack of access, particularly if buildings are vacant.

It is your responsibility to ensure that your water systems are continuously safe and compliant. Remote temperature monitoring uses the latest technology in temperature monitoring and record keeping. It also removes the need for physical temperature checks:

  • Wireless sensors are fitted to water points, providing continuous and accurate monitoring
  • Alerts are triggered and recorded via text, email or voice message, enabling you to efficiently managefailures or defects

For complete peace of mind, remote temperature monitoring is the ideal solution. And with flexible contract lengths to spread the equipment costs to suit your budget, thanks to Rock Compliance this technology is now available to all.
