Part 1: Building Re-occupancy: Procedures for Flushing Bacteria from Stagnant Building Water Piping
May 7, 2020, 9:30 – 10:00 a.m. PDT
With recent COVID-19 events causing extended vacancy of public buildings, a serious issue is associated with stagnant water in the buildings’ water systems where bacteria will grow and flourish in the biofilm of plumbing tanks, fixtures, and pipes. In this webinar, you’ll learn how to minimize the transmission of Legionella bacteria and other microorganisms.

Part 2: Supplemental Disinfection Methods and their Impact on Piping Systems
May 14, 2020, 9:30 – 10:00 a.m. PDT
A wide variety of supplemental disinfection methods are available to the building owner and engineer in the fight against waterborne pathogens. In this webinar, the presenter will identify what the science says about the pros and cons of various supplemental disinfection methods, the synergy between disinfectants and flushing, and how each disinfectant interacts with piping materials such as copper, CPVC, PEX, and more.
Presented by Christoph Lohr, PE, CPD, LEED AP BD+C, Director of Education & Strategic Projects, LiquiTech
Part 3: Automation Technology for Improving Building Water Safety & Efficiency
May 21, 2020, 9:30 – 10:00 a.m. PDT
Plumbing systems have a tremendous impact on public health and safety, yet historically plumbing systems have been “dumb” systems. To improve building water safety and efficiency, smarter plumbing systems are needed. In this webinar, the presenter will discuss how automation technology by GF Piping Systems is tackling the two most common issues in building water and making effective water management easier, safer, and smarter.
