The problem we solve: 1. Outbreaks are commonly associated with shower heads Epidemiological studies indicate that Shower head is an ideal environment for Legionella. Low levels of chlorine, accumulation of scale and organic material in the shower head create an ideal environment for Legionella. All the existing solutions such as Washing water pipes with high levels of chlorine are solutions that do not work continuously 2. The data indicate that in about half of the shower heads, Legionella bacteria is detected at a concentration higher than the permissible, when Legionella is detected the institution is required to perform an expensive disinfection process and then make a re-test to verify success of disinfection, this procedure take a lot of man hours and is very costly (Tens of thousands of $ each year).
About our solution: ? Continuous disinfection of the shower head, when water stops. System prevents Legionella and another bacteria accumulation. ? Small sized disinfection unit (chlorine tablet) operates only when water stops. ? By preventing air entering the shower head we minimize aerosols that transmit the Legionella, minimize chlorine oxidization and preventing scale and organic sediments. ? The silicon valves preventing from air enters to the shower head which minimize aerosols that transmit the Legionella. ? Minimize chlorine oxidization. ? Preventing scale and organic sediments.Progress to date:
We designed product for marketing.

Hospitals and Hotel are required by regulation, to perform a routinely (between once and four times a year) examination to detect Legionella in the bathing water. There are data that indicate that in about half of the cases, bacteria are detected at a concentration higher than the permissible, when Legionella is detected the institution is required to perform an expensive disinfection process and then make a re-test to verify success of disinfection, this procedure take a lot of man hours and is very costly (Tens of thousands of $ each year).
