Shower Safe Legionella Filters
The Safe Water Products Shower Head & disposable/replaceable Legionella Filter has been validated using Legionella Pneumophila and is designed to remove Legionella spp. from water supplies contaminated with the bacteria. Several studies have reported outbreaks due to Legionella spp., where the mortality rate can be up to 40% or even higher for immunocompromised patients. For this high-risk group, the concentration of Legionella spp. in the water supply must remain below the detection limit.
When an installation is found to be contaminated with Legionella it is not always possible to evacuate until disinfection is carried out. With the Safe Water Products shower head and legionella filter, at least the occupants can continue to wash normally whilst the decontamination goes on around them. The filter contains a 0.01-0.2µm membrane incorporating pre-filtration which can be used routinely at temperatures of up to 60°C, while withstanding a max. temperature of 70°C for a total cumulative period of 30 minutes over the life of the filter.
The filter is capable of delivering high volume throughput over an extended period of time and is therefore a cost effective method of providing patient protection in health-care environments against Legionella spp. within a contaminated water supply.
