Hydrosense - Smarter test, safer water

Safe water to consumers

We at H2Optimizer can upgrade your tap water at the 'Point Of Entry', or POE for short, to a very high level of quality, purity and safety. Up to a clinical standard.
But the purity of your water at the tap and consumption points, the 'Point Of Use' or POU is determined by the condition of the water pipes after our water treatment unit. A biofilm may have formed on the inside of the pipes, which is an ideal basis for the growth of microorganisms such as the legionella pneuphilia SG1 bacteria, which is responsible for the life-threatening Legionnaires' disease!
When a pipeline network has been out of service for a longer period of time, for example as a result of a Covid-19 lock down, this danger even increases exceptionally.

Therefore, regularly test your tap water!

We can arrange this for you, but you can also quickly and easily test this yourself with our Hydrosense Rapid Legionella Field Test kits. A reliable fast test result on site in just 30 minutes!

Our Hydrosense legionella rapid test kits are available in several versions for testing all types of water sources: read below.

Hydrosense Pro Smartphone Reader App & Portal

To complement the already significant time-to result saving (10 to 14 days for lab culture tests versus 25 minutes for the rapid on-site test) and further accelerate the decision-making process when Legionella is detected in a water system Hydrosense developed the Hydrosense Pro Smartphone Reader App and an Online Portal. These tools, when combined, provide the fastest way to progress from taking a water sample to providing an actionable result to the duty holder for the facility being risk managed for Legionella.:

Is water quality testing and Legionella testing your priority?

The Hydrosense Rapid On-Site Legionella Test Kits can help. These use Lateral Flow Immunochromatographic Assay (LFICA) technology. That's the same technology used in Covid and pregnancy testing.

Our easy-to-use Legionella test kits detect Legionella pneumophila sg1 antigen in water samples and biofilms, the species that causes more than 90% of Legionnaires' disease cases.

Results are delivered within 25 minutes, are highly accurate and have a recovery rate of 80% (laboratory culture is 64%). They come in singles or as test kits and are available in 2 sensitivity levels - Ultra and Multi.

Adding Hydrosense to your water management program gives you real-time knowledge of the presence of Legionella when performing your water quality tests.
