The environments where we live and work every day can be the ideal place for the growth and development of pathogens that are harmful to our health. Mist or stagnant water, hot water recirculation networks, air conditioners, and storage tanks are all at risk for bacterial contamination. This is why they require thorough disinfection actions.
Both in public facilities (hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, schools, etc.), and in private ones (hotels, swimming pools, wellness centres, tourism centres in general), where people share common areas and use the same water, hygiene and cleaning of water systems are a priority that must be guaranteed with absolute certainty.
In fact, water circuits are characterised by critical areas: inside pipes, in stagnation or accumulation points, in boilers, showers, in the distribution terminals and in hot water recirculation systems, pathogens find the ideal environmental conditions to grow and develop.
Legionella can be found in all natural aquatic environments, such as rivers, lakes and spring waters and, from there, it flows up through water pipes, artificial circuits, toilets, tanks, pools, etc. It is one of the most common pathogenic agents and it represents a health hazard. Legionella sees its maximum development in the presence of suitable conditions such as temperature, aerobic environments, water stagnation, presence of biofilms and / or amoebae.
The infection can be contracted through aerosol and it causes between 5% and 10% of the total cases of community acquired pneumonia and between 3% and 20% of all hospital pneumonia. In Italy there are a few hundred cases each year, of which between 5% and 15% are lethal . Since 2000, the Istituto Superiore di Sanità (Italian health institute) has set up guidelines for the prevention and control of legionellosis (OJ No. 103 of May 5, 2000), which over the years were followed by new national and European regulations.
Sanodyna® is the right solution for the elimination of the legionella bacteria.
It sanitises cold and / or hot sanitary water in any structure in the most effective way by eliminating contaminations from Legionella and other pathogens, preventing its re-growth in full compliance with the regulations in force. Thanks to its metastable properties, Sanodyna® features significant advantages: it produces no toxic residues, it does not alter the potability of water and does not corrode piping, it does not irritate the skin.
Hospitals, clinics, nursing homes and health facilities in general are places where the risk of legionellosis or other infectious diseases is particularly high; the pathological conditions of some patients increase their risk of contagion. Therefore, maximum hygiene is required to prevent the formation of bacterial colonies in all sensitive areas.
The hospitality industry requires increasingly efficient and ecological solutions for disinfection. Sanodyna® offers the most effective solution for the sanitation of hotels, residences, country resorts, camp-sites and accommodations in general, ensuring compliance with the highest sanitary standards.
The use of Sanodyna® in water treatment at sports facilities such as swimming pools, spas, fitness centres and hot springs, permanently removes the risk of bacterial contaminations and the proliferation of other microorganisms such as fungi, which are the main cause for the typical pathologies of sports centres. In swimming pools, the use of Sanodyna® makes the water clean, clear and free from the negative effects caused by the use of products chemicals.
Large cruise liners are home to thousands of people for days, turning themselves into small floating cities with their bars, restaurants, laundries, spas and pools which need and use huge amounts of water. Sanodyna® is the answer to their need to treat waters onboard and waste water.
