Hospitals, as well as homes and businesses in the North West have been starkly reminded about the dangers of cryptosporidium in recent weeks with the latest outbreak meaning that everyone had to boil their water for more than 3 consecutive days. Although just an inconvenience for many, for the more vulnerable it meant a very nervous time. Had hospitals, care homes and other businesses in the area had the new Brita Vivreau Hygiene Solution drinking water system installed, then the need to boil drinking water would have been eradicated, thanks to the sterile double membrane which filters to 0.45µm/0.2µm, thus blocking the 4.5µm cryptosporidium.
Nationwide, microbiological pollution can occur naturally in normal water coolers. For hygienically sensitive areas in particular this poses an obvious concern. The New Brita Vivreau Hygiene Solution drinking water system is a ground-breaking innovation that keeps pollutants such as cryptosporidium at bay, ensuring the ultimate in hygienic drinking water dispense. FDA approved, the Hygiene Solution eradicates bacteria growth around the dispenser nozzle without manual intervention or the use of chemicals; instead, the patented thermal germ barrier heats up automatically at regular intervals in order to thermally disinfect the dispenser, maintaining perfectly pure and pollutant-free drinking water from a Vivreau system every time.
And, following microbiological examination conducted by the Department of Hygiene and Environmental Medicine of the University Medical Centre at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz in August 2014, scientists concluded that the Hygiene Solution drinking water system ‘far exceeds the demands of the German Technical and Scientific Association for Gas and Water’, with Professor Dr Michael Pietsch adding that it “works flawlessly”.
