Tap water filtration

aqua-tools Infection Control Solutions provides health care facilities with sterilizing-grade terminal or inline tap water filtration devices.

Healthcare Associated Infaction (HAIs) are the focus of enhanced vigilance in health care facilities. .

In these facilities, the risk of HAIs linked to the water supply is directly due to the presence of pathogenic and opportunistic micro-organisms in the water. These germs can arise from:

• proliferation within the facility’s distribution network (the most common case);

• internal contamination due to the accidental introduction of germs at the point of use by patients (retrograde contamination), at technical points by maintenance staff or elsewhere (technical failure);

• external contamination due to uncontrolled pollution or technical disruption of the public network.
