Drinking water testing and sampling

On the safe side with profluid
Drinking water tests according to VDI 6023-A.
Water, more than any other medium, determines the cycle of life on our planet. For the development of human civilization, clean water was and is "the" key factor. No wonder when you consider that, for example, in the temperate European climate, an adult human needs about 1.5-2.5 liters of water per day to remain efficient and healthy.
Water rarely occurs in nature in its pure state, usually containing proportions of dissolved salts, gases, organic compounds and microorganisms.
Depending on its composition and degree of purity, water is either beneficial or harmful to health, and therefore requires extensive purification and sterilization for human consumption. In Germany, regulations and limit values for drinking water are laid down in the Drinking Water Ordinance (TrinkwV) and in the "General Ordinance for the Supply of Water" (AVBWasserV).
The respective state of the art for the construction and operation of drinking water supply systems is summarized in DIN 2000.
Benefits of regular drinking water monitoring.
Profluid with claim to the goal
Beyond sampling, we support you with many years of experience in solving problems on site. profluid GmbH operates independently of plant manufacturers and laboratory companies and can therefore act as a neutral consultant. Even in the case of old plants - often with inadequate plant documentation - we have already been able to help numerous customers together with the sanitary contractors involved, without tearing up walls or floors. Even problems that are not obvious at first glance, such as legionella, heavy metals or even excessive energy consumption are essential for our investigation. From the elimination of unused stub lines, recommendations for a total renovation to system disinfection with chlorine dioxide - we are happy to advise you. Our clients include facility managers, building operators, public institutions and landlords.
Services according to the Drinking Water Ordinance and the VDI6023 for drinking water installations
The conflicts of interest described in the standard are fundamentally excluded at profluid, since neither
laboratory tests nor plant installations/maintenance are part of our fields of activity.
Review and control of the plant documentation, in particular the string diagram for determining the sampling points.
Performing the initial inspection and establishing future inspection intervals
Documentation in the form of a report of all identified hygiene-related and design-related weaknesses.
Microbiological examination at the identified control points.
Investigation of the samples taken by a laboratory accredited according to VDI6023-A.
Detailed report of all deficiencies and identified problems with subsequent recommendations for action to adequately address these deficiencies as part of a risk assessment .
Legal safeguarding by securing the results. of hygiene inspection and drinking water sampling according to VDI 6023 in . the HixDB
Notes: Significant technical/structural interventions in existing drinking water installations require a new initial inspection. Technical defects of existing installations that lead to hygienic problems are not covered by grandfathering..
The intervals for repeat inspections and the scope of testing are regulated by the German Drinking Water Ordinance. The operator of a drinking water supply system or installation is responsible for testing and maintenance.
After sampling, questions often arise about the technical and/or hygienic solution of problems. We are happy to support you in this. It makes sense to develop a joint strategy with all those responsible for rapid and conflict-free implementation. As a result of the problem analysis, we quickly arrive at concrete proposals for action to avoid problems with compliance with the TWVO in the future.
We are independent and provide neutral advice.
Note: These measures are taken after consultation with the competent health authority, which according to the TWVO in case of problems with limit value exceedances in drinking water tests in any case to be switched on. Corresponding notifications are usually already made by the commissioned testing laboratory.
In the event of microbiological problems in drinking water installations, the installations are first examined for technical weaknesses (in particular stub lines, long interruptions in use, corrosion and deposits, and temperature problems in hot water supply systems). In addition, flushing the system with chlorine dioxide solutions has proven effective as a stop-gap measure until the technical deficiencies are corrected. (Chlorine dioxide solutions are approved for the purpose of disinfecting drinking water systems. (It is highly recommended to have the pipes cleaned by a specialized company before disinfection).
