Plumbing systems in commercial buildings are designed to be used often. Stagnant water in pipes is a fertile breeding ground for the bacteria that causes Legionnaire’s Disease.

Those looking for detailed web information should visit our Building Wisconsin web page Turning on the Tap. In today’s video from Building Wisconsin TV, host Stuart Keith meets with plumbing professionals to find out the steps necessary to safely reopen plumbing systems in buildings that have been closed or underused due to COVID-19.
