UK legislation aimed at reducing the risk of Legionnaire’s disease has increased interest in our FlowThru series which ensures the circulation of water stored in the pressure tank.

One of our customers in the UK, Carter Pumps, recently published an article on their website about the risks of legionella and other micro-organisms in water systems. To mitigate the risk, they recommend the use of FlowThru vessels and emphasize that the vessel needs to be installed at the right location in the system.

Carter Pumps also draw attention to the Legionnaires’ disease guidance that was released by the UK Health and Safety Executive.
