LOMBARD, Ill. — LiquiTech, a provider of water treatment to health care, hospitality, commercial, industrial, and government facilities, has announced the release of a new corporate website. The new site, www.liquitech.com, features improved navigation, updated content, and a new focus on monitoring and maintenance as a pillar of its copper silver ionization system.

“As an industry leader, LiquiTech believes the scrutiny in regards to safety for potable water should be just below that of blood transfusions,” said Tory Schira, chief operating officer of LiquiTech. “All potable water treatment systems must be monitored and maintained in order to be effective. There is no such thing as ‘plug and play,’ and the lack of maintenance is a leading source of adverse events associated with waterborne pathogens.”

Schira said the secondary water treatment market suffers from a lack of accurate and accessible information online. He said the upgraded LiquiTech website will continually feature updated industry news for both current customers and those interested in seeking information on how best to protect a business and people against the costs associated with infections or disease caused by waterborne pathogens, especially the bacteria that cause Legionnaires’ disease. It will also feature a continuously updated map of outbreaks across the U.S., with links to news articles.

LiquiTech’s copper silver ionization system was one of the first to be registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as being effective in the prevention and control of Legionella pneumophila in commercial potable water supplies (U.S. EPA Reg. No. 68250-1).

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says an estimated 8,000 to 18,000 peopleare hospitalized with Legionnaires’ disease each year in the U.S. Schira asserted that the number of confirmed Legionella cases reported each year to the CDC represents only a tiny percentage of the real number of cases. He said the number of Legionella cases misdiagnosed as pneumonia is closer to 600,000 per year.

“With a mortality rate of nearly 40 percent, Legionnaires’ disease continues to be among the deadliest preventable diseases known to us,” Schira said.
