Part 2 – "Supplemental Disinfection Methods and their Impact on Piping Systems"
Presented by: Christoph Lohr, PE, CPD, LEED AP BD+C, Director of Education & Strategic Projects, LiquiTech
Description: There are a wide variety of supplemental disinfection methods available to the building owner and engineer in the fight against waterborne pathogens. In this webinar, industry expert Christoph Lohr will identify what the science says about the pros and cons of various supplemental disinfection methods, the synergy between disinfectants and flushing, and how each disinfectant interacts with piping materials such as copper, CPVC, PEX, and more.

Part 3 – "Automation Technology for Improving Building Water Safety & Efficiency"
Presented by: Greg Swafford, CPD, GPD, Technical Sales Manager-Commercial Water, GF Piping Systems
Description: Plumbing systems have a tremendous impact on public health and safety, yet historically plumbing systems have been "dumb" systems. To improve building water safety and efficiency, smarter plumbing systems are needed. In this webinar, Greg Swafford will discuss how automation technology by GF Piping Systems is tackling the two most common issues in building water and making effective water management easier, safer, and smarter.
