Abstract

The paper deals with the requirements of the potable water cold temperature and water exchange in water piping system inside buildings. The contribution describes the main factors influencing the hygiene of potable water in terms of its temperature and a exchange in the pipeline. In buildings, the resulting water hygienic risks can be reduced using the right technical solution. The technical measures described in the paper are usage of the automatic water flushing system, design of the potable water cold circulation and cooling system and optimization of the water pipeline distribution system inside buildings.
