Radio-Tech and GES form Legionella Monitoring Partnership

Posted: Thursday 18th November 2010

General Environmental Services Ltd (GES Water and GES Technology) has signed a distribution agreement with Radio-Tech to provide its clients with aquavision, Radio-Tech’s wireless legionella* management system.

GES supplies customers with water treatment and hygiene programmes and legionella monitoring forms a core part of its business. Kevin Bloodworth, Director of GES Technology is responsible for driving innovation and looked at several methods of improving legionella control. He commented:

“We found that Radio-Tech’s product was by far the best product on the market. aquavision goes above and beyond the minimum standard of legionella monitoring set out in HSE’s ACoP L8 guidelines. Clients get a better overview of the system and it enables them to identify problems that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to see, so it’s a great investigative tool.”

aquavision works by wirelessly monitoring water temperatures at multiple sites from any internet enabled location. It is a fully automated system that has been developed to assist water treatment companies, facility management and property management companies to comply with current guidelines and legislation.

Kevin noted that Radio-Tech’s product enabled GES to give clients an all-round better service:
“With aquavision, the process is automated so clients don’t have to remember to manually check temperatures every month, or make sure the contractor has been in to do it. It also helps us cut down on the number of vans we send out thereby improving our costs and environmental footprint”, Kevin said, adding, “We can also offer aquavision to clients on a lease basis which provides a much-improved and cost-effective solution to customers.”

Using aquavision to wirelessly monitor water temperatures is less invasive than the traditional method of manually checking and automatically flushing outlets on each floor of a building.

Kevin continued: “aquavision has other advantages; sometimes there are security or privacy issues at certain properties, or the need to be discreet. For example, care homes often don’t want strangers intruding in resident’s personal living space every month, which can be very disruptive. aquavision eliminates this issue by remotely and wirelessly monitoring water temperatures regularly without the need to enter private property.”

Craig Anderson, Sales Manager at Radio-Tech commented on the new partnership deal with GES: “Their wealth of knowledge and experience in the water industry combined with our technical and design abilities make this an ideal partnership.”
