Historically, plumbing systems have been designed and operated without the ability to quickly and easily control or monitor their operation, thus making effective building water management time consuming and difficult. In this presentation, we review the impact of common building water issues, the principles of effective water management, and how emerging technology can consistently deliver hot water throughout the facility, minimize stagnation, optimize system performance, and support ASHRAE 188 compliance.
Learning Objectives:
Upon successful completion of the course learners will be able to:
  • Define the three key water management objectives for premise plumbing.
  • List the common building water issues impacting system operation.
  • Explain key water management principles for minimizing risk associated with premise plumbing.
  • Describe how automation technology supports key water management objectives.
