Hotel Legionella Control Water Softener Sizing Calculator & Guide
Are Legionella and other harmful organisms a concern in your Hotel? Do industrial water softeners play a role in a hotel concerning harmful bacterial growth and guest safety? Hotel water softeners are often breading grounds for pathogens like Legionella and other bacteria due to stagnant water in tanks, pipes and valves. This is often exacerbated by impractical softener configurations, oversized equipment and warm environments. Getting rid of softeners is not an option because removal of softeners results in scale, which helps harbor biofilm that protects Legionella. The below calculations are used as rough guides for our patent pending Hotel Legionella Control Softener System.
Do you have a defensible Water Management Plan in place? Every effective water management program has a goal to reduce or eliminate hazards such as stagnant water and dead legs whether in industrial water softeners or other plumbing and equipment. Industrial water softeners are one of those hazards as they almost always have at least one or more tanks and connected piping sitting stagnant. Our Hotel Legionella Control Softener System takes care of these hazards. To size one of these systems, input gallons per day (GPD), hardness (grains) and peak flow.
The results are only guides.

* Peak Continuous GPM is not instantaneous peak flow rate. It represents a continuous high flow rate at peak times of the day (e.g. for 30 minutes or more).
** Instantaneous peak flow rate is the maximum GPM for a short time (e.g. 1-5 minute period).
