Hygienically clean drinking water is delivered from the water supply companies to the premises. At this point, the responsibility for drinking water quality is transferred to the owner. It is up to the owner to ensure the proper operation and maintenance of the drinking water system. Poor operation and maintenance will significantly increase health risks by exposing the occupants to water borne pathogens.
Hot water distribution is a critical factor: If the hot water temperature in the house is constantly regulated and monitored, pathogens such as legionella have no chance of survival. For safe protection, high water temperatures of >55 °C are necessary. The German Environment Ministry considers a hot water temperature of 55-60°C necessary for hygienic heated water. Keeping within this range is also considered the optimum temperature range for energy efficient operation.
System with static hydraulic circulation adjustment
Through the installation of throttle valves, permanently adjusted pressure losses are balanced in
the risers, thus permitting an even flow and distribution.
Dynamic, continuous thermally balanced system
Through the installation of control valves with thermostatic temperature control, variable
pressure losses are configured in a modulating way in the risers, thus permitting an even flow
Dynamic, thermally balanced
system in terms of levels
Through the installation of floor levelling valves, variable pressure losses in all plant
sections are configured in a modulating manner, thus enabling even flow and distribution.
