Support for maintaining water quality with SWS
To maintain drinking water hygiene, regulations in Germany require a full exchange of water every 72 hours across all tapping points within the building. More detailed information can be found in this article. The SCHELL SWS Water Management System offers efficient and sustainable support for maintaining drinking water hygiene. This is because SWS facilitates the central control and monitoring of networked electronic SCHELL fittings with the SWS Server. Stagnation flushes, which are essential to ensure the necessary exchange of water in a building in the event of longer interruptions in use or fluctuations in usage patterns, can be executed and logged automatically. Groups can also be set up, to flush multiple fittings at the same time. This achieves high flow velocities in the installation piping and specified normal operation can therefore be simulated. This offers optimum support for operators looking to maintain drinking water quality. Thanks to SWS, error-prone, manual stagnation flushes are now a thing of the past. The manual opening and closing of fittings consumes significantly more water than automated flushes, since it takes a while until all fittings are opened and flushing simultaneously. With SWS, the resulting personnel costs can also be avoided, thanks to this automation of stagnation flushes.
Maintenance work such as battery replacements can also be planned efficiently with SWS. So SWS not only offers support for maintaining drinking water quality but also for conducting operations efficiently while conserving resources.
