In the attempt to contain the COVID-19 pandemic, many buildings globally including: hotels, leisure centers, public buildings, schools, kindergartens, swimming pools, etc., have been temporarily closed and a high level of water stagnation within these buildings is expected. Water stagnation is a significant contributing factor to microbial growth within water installations and can increase the risk of contamination with Legionella and other waterborne pathogens. Several measures can help to reduce the growth of waterborne microorganisms during stagnation periods. Besides flushing, maintaining the required temperatures for hot and cold water, the installation of Point-of-Use Water Filters can provide an efficient physical barrier against waterborne bacteria and fungi.
