What is flushing?

"Flushing" refers to the process of opening taps to allow water to flow and remove any stagnant water from interior pipes or outlets. The duration of flushing may vary depending on the type of outlet being cleared. It's a simple procedure that doesn't involve installing or maintaining water treatment equipment or following complex instructions. Flushing can be performed routinely to ensure continuous water movement and freshness.

Risks Associated with Stagnant Water



In stagnant water, microbial growth can occur more rapidly compared to flowing water. When water becomes stagnant, it lacks movement and aeration, creating an environment where microorganisms can thrive. These microorganisms can reproduce and form biofilms, which are layers of microorganisms and organic matter that adhere to surfaces in the water system.

Bacteria and other microorganisms are vulnerable as free-swimming cells. To overcome this, microorganisms form communities known as biofilms.  Biofilms provide a protective environment for microorganisms, allowing them to persist and multiply even in adverse conditions. Additionally, stagnant water may become warmer over time, further promoting microbial growth, including potentially harmful bacteria like Legionella.

Overall, stagnant water creates favorable conditions for microbial proliferation, increasing the risk of waterborne illnesses and compromising water quality. Regular flushing and circulation of water are essential to prevent stagnation and minimize the growth of microorganisms in water systems.
