What You Should Know About Legionnaires’ Disease During COVID-19

In this new era of COVID-19, the idea of dealing with yet another deadly illness is a scary thought. But that’s what’s happening right now: Legionnaires’ Disease has become an increasing concern as a result of the COVID-19 shutdown, according to reports. Read on to learn more about Legionnaires’ disease and why you should be aware of it.

What Is Legionnaires’ Disease?

Legionnaires’ is a severe type of pneumonia that affects the lungs—it’s caused by bacteria called legionella (these bacteria can also cause Pontiac Fever). Legionella live naturally in fresh water lakes and streams, as well as in or around human-made fresh water systems, like faucets, fountains, and hot water tanks in your home. They also thrive in industrial fresh water systems, namely in cooling tower systems used in central air conditioning for businesses and industries.  The health risk arises when these bacteria are allowed to grow and spread without being treated, particularly in industrial systems.

Why Is Legionnaires’ Disease a Concern Right Now?

Fresh water used for air conditioning and plumbing systems has been left stagnate in many industrial buildings and businesses that were closed down for COVID-19. As a result, this sitting water gets warmer, creating an ideal environment for bacteria, like legionella, to proliferate. Case in point: The CDC reportedly had to shut down several buildings in Atlanta, including some of their own buildings, due to legionella being found in their plumbing and cooling tower systems.

Is Legionnaires’ Disease Similar to COVID-19?

They do share some characteristics. For example, similar to COVID-19, Legionnaires’ attacks the lungs. It’s also commonly spread through contaminated water droplets that people breathe in through the air. Those most likely at risk tend to be older, have pre-existing conditions, such as diabetes and emphysema, and have weakened immune systems. One thing these diseases don’t have in common: Legionnaires’ doesn’t spread from person to person, in general (although it can happen in rare cases). Also, COVID-19 is caused by a virus, which is different than Legionnaires’, which is caused by bacteria.

How Common and How Dangerous Is Legionnaires’ Disease?

Cooling towers Legionnaires’ is quite common. So much so that it’s standard practice for the water in cooling tower systems to be treated with chemicals that help prevent the growth of cooling tower legionella (which in turn helps minimize Legionella risk). In addition, cooling tower manufacturer Delta Cooling Towers, Inc. has developed state-of-the-art, anti-microbial product technology designed to reduce legionella growth. But how dangerous is it, exactly?

According to data from Centers for Disease Control (CDC), nearly 10,000 cases occurred in the U.S. in 2018, although experts believe that there may have been unreported cases because the illness is often underdiagnosed. Symptoms can include fever, cough, diarrhea, shortness of breath, and more. It’s treated with antibiotics, but about one in 10 people die after being infected. Experts say that even low levels of legionella have been linked to Legionnaire’s disease, and no amount of legionella is considered safe.

How Can You Protect Yourself and Your Family?

Because Legionnaires’ often occurs through industrial water-cooling systems, it’s important for facility owners and managers to make consistent efforts to reduce public health risk. Large buildings in the U.S. are encouraged to follow water management program standards and guidelines. And since cooling towers are known breeding zones for bacteria, it’s critical for those business to perform regular cooling tower legionella risk assessment.

One proactive (and preventive) measure would be to choose a cooling tower manufacturer that uses the latest product technology to help minimize legionella growth. Click here for more information about Delta Cooling Tower’s anti-microbial technology.

Flexcon Industries Well Tanks

Flexcon Industries Well Tanks

Flexcon Industries Well Tanks from N.H. Yates

Although there are various designs of well tank, the basic principle is really fairly simple. There is pressurized air on the top of the tank and a reservoir of water on the bottom. As the water pump fills the reservoir with water, the air on the top compresses and when the pressure get to approximately 50psi, a switch turns the pump off.  Then, as water is used and emptied, compressed air pushes the water out of the tank. When the pressure drops to approximately 30pi, the pump switches back on and the cycle repeats itself. At N.H Yates, we are proud to be a manufacturer’s representative for Flexcon Industries Well Tanks. Over the years, our team has utilized many Flexcon Industries Well Tanks for a variety of commercial applications. Here is more information on some of Flexon Industries top-selling models.

The FlexPro2 WWT is the only water tank in its category that offers CAD2 technology combined with a stainless steel water connection. The result is superior air and water separation and unmatched performance. Flexcon Industries patented manufacturing technique allows them to properly size the diaphragm in a full range of sizes from 14 to 119 gallons. Each tank undergoes a seam-weld test, a high-pressure test, and is then subjected to Flexcon’s famous helium test. Then before leaving the factory, a final air charge check ensures each tank arrives at the job site with the correct precharge.

Flexcon Industries Flex2Pro H2P Well Tanks

Flexcon Industries Expansion Tanks

Flexcon Industries Expansion Tanks from N.H. Yates

Water heaters can stress the pipes of a plumbing system during the normal thermal expansion that occurs during the heating process. Therefore, many engineers choose to install expansion tanks, sometimes called thermal expansion tanks, as a safety to minimize the risk of pressure damage to the plumbing system. It’s estimated that 50 gallons of cold water in a standard water heater can expand to take up the space of 52 gallons when heated to 120F. This extra water can create excess pressure in the plumbing system which over time can cause damage to the water heater, plumbing fixtures, and the water pipes themselves. At N.H. Yates, we are proud to be manufacturers representatives for the entire line of Flexcon Industries Expansion Tanks and have seen their product successfully utilized in many commercial and residential applications.

Hayward Flow Meters & Level Sensors

Hayward Flow Meters & Level Sensors from N.H. Yates

Most hot water boilers utilize flowmeters to measure the amount of liquid, gas, or vapor that passes through a system. While some flowmeters measure flow as the amount of fluid pass through over a certain time period, others measure the totalized amount that passes through a system. In combination with level sensors, flowmeters control the levels of water and/or gas that travel throughout a system to maintain temperature levels with a large facility. At N.H. Yates, we are proud manufacturer’s representatives for Hayward Flow Meters and Level Sensors and have utilized for many successful applications over the years.
