How ProEconomy’s Advanced Water Treatment and Management Service Is Revolutionising Hotel Legionella Control

Used for food production, drinking, showering, cleaning, laundry, air conditioning and for guest facilities such as pools and hot tubs, water can be found almost everywhere in the everyday running of hotels and holiday resorts. As a result, water safety and compliance are vital for hotels to maintain their reputation and keep staff and visitors safe. This is where ProEconomy come in.

Thanks to their advanced water treatment and management service, ProEconomy are taking the stress out of facilities managers’ lives and revolutionising hotel water treatment.

The Most Advanced Water Treatment

ProEconomy’s Orca copper silver ionisation system has successfully controlled Legionella in every site it has been installed in, including some large hotels.

By destroying biofilm, the underlying cause of Legionella and other water borne bacteria, it is proven to not just eradicate Legionella but also prevent water borne pathogens from returning. Additionally, the Orca system has no COSSH issues and is safe to handle, making it a safer alternative to other water treatment modalities and avoiding potential harm of hotel guests and the environment.

In a recent peer reviewed scientific paper published in the American Journal of Infection Control, it has been demonstrated that it is possible to control Legionella independent of temperature when an Orca copper silver ionisation system is introduced into a new building in conjunction with an appropriately managed water system. Therefore, the Orca system facilitates 100% Legionella control and allows new build hotels to reduce energy consumption and, in turn, save money.

ProEconomy have installed their Orca system in a wide range of premises. This includes prestigious hotels including The Lygon Arms Hotel and Peebles Hydro Hotel, some of the largest hospitals in the UK, such as Great Ormond Street Hospital, The Royal Free and Addenbrookes Hospital and some of the most prestigious sites across Europe, such as the European Space Agency and Windsor Castle.

Tetras: From Outlet To Internet

ProEconomy are adding to their water treatment service by revolutionising the way water samples are collected, tracked and analysed with their new, cloud-based water management system, Tetras. From barcoding outlets to taking samples and recording everything on the Cloud, Tetras does it all. ProEconomy have the sampling resources, as well as the software experience, needed to take the stress out of water management.

Once a water sample is collected by City and Guilds accredited samplers, a UKAS approved laboratory will analyse the sample’s water quality. Then, unlike other outsourced sampling companies, ProEconomy take it one step further. After sampling, the laboratory scans barcodes, that have been added to the sample bottle, and uploads all sample results into a client’s easy to use online dashboard.

Here, clients can trend analysis results of individual outlets over time, graph site wide water quality, store certificates of analysis, create custom alerts and view results in real time, as soon as they are analysed. There’s even the option to download colour coded Excel spreadsheets of your results if that’s the format you prefer.

The whole purpose of Tetras is to combine a bespoke water management system with advanced outlet sampling in order to achieve compliance for clients. Sites have full transparent access, from individual sample details to site-wide results, so any water issues are detected, and therefore treated, before further contamination occurs.

How Are ProEconomy Revolutionising Hotel Water Treatment?

Admittedly, there are other water treatment and sampling companies out there. But, there are none like ProEconomy. Rather than having separate companies for water treatment and water sampling, ProEconomy allow you to seamlessly unify the two. Say goodbye to hordes of paper used for organising water hygiene and say hello to an easy to use, online system that simplifies the water management game by harmonising the journey from outlet to internet without a scrap of paper in sight.

Tetras comes free with the purchase of ProEconomy’s Orca copper silver ionisation system or can be purchased and integrated with any control modality for just £20 per sample.
