Ecological solution for water systems gains regional endorsement
After numerous installations proving the efficiency of AQUA4D® in buildings in Valais, Switzerland, the regional government has now explicitly mentioned this technology in their directives for energy and resource use.
After numerous installations proving the efficiency of AQUA4D® in buildings in Valais, Switzerland, the regional government has now explicitly mentioned this technology in their directives for energy and resource use. Specifically, the section pertaining to water use recommends to “install an Aqua4D water treatment system directly after the filter and after each circulation pump on the water system.”
This represents the latest in a line of recommendations and roll-out across Switzerland, where there are some 2,500 installations to date. Since its first emergence in the early 2000s, this clean technology has constantly caught the eye of organizations and institutions. Eric Plan from CleanTech Alps was one of the first to recognize the far-reaching potential of this technology. “AQUA4D has always been a pioneer in the cleantech field and contributes to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals,” says Plan. “Their pioneer’s spirit, social responsibility and company’s values have been rewarded with major distinctions in the past years, among them the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution label and the Highlight’s portfolio of the Swiss Confederation.”
AQUA4D® is an ecological, economical and modular solution for the effective protection of water pipes in buildings against the problems of scaling, corrosion and bacterial development. The effect is also proven in stagnant water, i.e. in buildings with low water consumption (e.g. sports halls, school buildings, second homes etc.) that are not in permanent use, irrespective of water quality and hardness. This last point is becoming more and more stringent for salt softeners that are set for a certain water hardness, as the water changes continuously during the year, with the various sources of supply interconnected. As a result, the salt softener quickly loses efficiency.
