Water treatment – established engineering or snake oil?


On 2nd of August, CIBSE Auckland presented an informative technical presentation on caring for our water.

Gareth McCabe of Waterpro Environmental Ltd reminded delegates of the often underestimated task of treating water. He concisely summarised key steps of Water Chemistry Control  and Control Options giving the audience some timely reminders of the microbial types and consequences of not treating. A brief history of  Legionella  and  the key components of the NZ Framework and Conditions of Compliance reinforced the message. Insider tips on the consequences of over dosing and potential negative impacts on certain types of piping added to the value of the evening. 

Thanks to Waterpro Environmental for providing the technical and refreshment content.
