The best practice recommendations we shared at the Institute of Hospital Engineering, Australia’s Healthcare Facilities Management conference are here, ready to be implemented in your operations.

At HydroChem, we deliver comprehensive strategies to solve your water treatment management issues. Daily, we prevent outbreaks of Legionnaire's disease, corrosion, scaling and fouling of your water systems. Known for providing highly reliable and consistent products and services we make your water treatment management trouble-free.

You have probably heard about the recent reports of Legionella detections in warm water systems in Queensland hospitals. The link between warm water systems and cases of Legionnaires' disease is unusual - normally it's the cooling tower system that is determined to be the source.The legislation governing the monitoring of warm water systems, and response to detections, varies from State to State.

To avoid confusion we've created an interactive map of Australia that clearly explains the legislation (or guidelines) in each state.
