Managing a care home has many challenges so don’t let limescale be one of them.

HydroFLOW® units were directly specified in at design stage by the planning water engineer

Zorggroep St. Maarten is a foundation that manages nearly 20 residential care homes.

Managing a care home has many challenges. Water treatment might not be the first thing that comes to mind. This where HydroFLOW® steps in.

The Netherlands area has Hard to Extremely Hard Water.

In 2012  Maimtec had already had two successful installation programmes at their 90 capacity care home and in 2014 at a 60 bed residential unit.

Solely responsible for HydroFLOW® water treatment in The Netherlands, Maimtec provide limescale and biofouling solutions for commercial buildings. All Hydropath representative offer a free site survey, consultation and installation service.

In 2016 Nahum Pelled of Maimtec met with the Head of Maintenance of all 17 locations of Zorggroep St. Maarten residential care homes

“He told me that after they saw the results of the working of the HydroFLOW® units in the first 2 locations they came to conclusion that it will be right to equip all locations of this foundation with HydroFLOW® technology as a prevention measure.”

7 sites were proposed. Each Technical Team and Maintenance Team received a presentation on the benefit of HydroFLOW® water technology. A site survey on water system and proposal therewith.

HydroFLOW® electronic water conditioners offer a chemical-free approach to treating existing and new limescale as well as biofouling. They are an alternative to water softeners with the benefit of no ongoing replenishment costs, and of the treated water remaining potable.

Control of limescale is also important for the prevention of Legionnaires Disease. As noted in the L8 agreed code of practise for Legionnaires Disease, hardness scale forms a barrier to treatment chemicals and may provide microbial habitat. (L8-1, 1.9). Heavily scaled heat exchange surfaces make it more difficult to maintain the higher temperatures needed to reduce legionella risk.

Hydropath have nearly 30 years experience in the field. We offer a Free Consultation. Free Site Survey if Required. Contact our trained Engineers for more advice.
