10 Reasons You Need a Water Management Partner

10 Reasons You Need a Water Management Partner

You’re a facilities manager at a major hospital. You’re an executive director, maintenance manager or infection prevention specialist at a senior living facility or long-term skilled nursing facility. You’re a mechanical or general contractor. You’re working at a state or local health department. You’re responsible for keeping your HVAC systems running efficiently and safely. Not only to keep your facility warm or cool, but to prevent potentially hazardous bacteria outbreaks. We have a tip for you: don’t do it alone. Wondering why? Lucky for you, we have 10 reasons to not only work with a water management partner, but to work with this one.  

1. You can ensure a safe facility.

We Safeguard Water. That is Solid Blend’s Mission, and that is what we do – every single day. Most hospital cooling systems have cooling towers that are exposed to outdoor elements and can harbor dangerous waterborne pathogens – like Legionella – it can lead to potentially fatal outbreaks. Not only in your facility, but for miles around it. It’s a big deal, and a big job. We come alongside you to ensure your system follows the processes to run safely, free of bacteria. But, if an outbreak occurs, we’re there to remediate it – quickly.  

2. You can rely on us for it all.

From customized Water Treatment Plans or Water Management Plans tailored to your and your facility’s needs, to Emergency Rapid Response services, to annual boiler and cooling tower cleanings and layups, to potable water solutions, to new construction or renovation projects, Solid Blend offers any – or all – of the services you need to maintain a safe, efficient, and compliant facility.

3. You can save time and money.

By creating systems and putting processes in place, you know what you have to do now, and next. There’s your time. By having a plan for inspections, disinfections, cleanings, layups, and routine services, you can rest easy knowing your equipment is running properly, ideally avoiding any surprise (and not in the fun way) maintenance costs or bacterial outbreaks. There’s your money. See, just like we said!


4. You can become the expert.

How can I better understand my HVAC system? What are the benefits of solid chemistry? What are the latest regulations, legislation, and professional certifications around waterborne pathogens? Good questions, we know. But, now that we mention them, don’t you want to know the answers? You know what we’re about to say. We have them for you!

We host an annual Water Management Summit with the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) and the TriState Society of Healthcare Engineers (TSHE) to bring you leading industry experts to answer all those questions and more. Knowing your water systems are protected can not only add to your time and money savings but can give you the confidence to address other facility concerns. Stay tuned for more information on our next one in March 2023.

5. You have a saving grace.

Like many things in life, we know emergencies don’t always happen at a convenient time. If you have a water treatment emergency or suspicion or discovery of Legionella, we’re here. We have a dedicated emergency response team that you’ll talk to within an hour. If there is a Legionella outbreak, our team will be at your facility that day.

Remember how we said don’t do it alone? These are those times where you really want a partner by your side. We’ve got your back.

6. We are committed to you.

Your success is our success. Customer service is our middle name. Yep, call us Solid Customer Service Blend. Doesn’t have the best ring to it, but we’re rolling with it!

Our purpose is to create an environment where our team, our clients (that’s you!), and our community thrive. We are passionate about what we do, and that passion is the driving force behind providing the best service to you, and your facility.


7. We are dedicated to continuing education.

At Solid Blend, we think we’re pretty great. But, we also know we don’t know it all. Confident, but humble – pretty good motto, we’d say?! When it comes to standards, guidelines, laws, and regulations around water management, they are rapidly  – and constantly – changing. It is our job to not only keep our team and our processes up to date, but to ensure your facility continues to meet them. Wondering just how we might do that? We commit to providing 1,000+ hours of continuing education to our team every year.  

8. We are heavy hitters when it comes to guidelines and standards.

Speaking of those guidelines and standards… ASHRAE Standard 188. CTI Guideline 159. AWT Guidelines. ASME. ABMA. We follow and stay up-to-date with them all.

Plus, we have partnerships with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and the Ohio Department of Health; certifications from Certified Water Technologists (CWT); ASSE 12080 through the International Association of Plumbing & Mechanical Officials (IAPMO); and memberships at Cooling Technology Institute (CTI), Association of Water Technologies (AWT), and American Water Works Association.

All of that may have made your eyes cross – don’t worry – that’s what we’re here for. When it comes to the acronyms of standards and organizations, we’re on top of it.  

9. We have a proven track record.

We’re not the biggest fans of tooting our own horn (remember, confident but humble), but we do know if you’re committing to us as a water management partner, we want you to know we can back up everything we’ve said.

We’ve served more than 275 clients throughout Ohio and have partners that have been with us for more than 15 years. We’ve safeguarded water and responded rapidly since 1999, and we’re here to stay.

10. We are ready to go to work for you now.

Right now, many companies are facing the challenges of labor shortages and scheduling delays. We’re proud to say, not at Solid Blend. We’re in the business of keeping you and your community safe and healthy, and we know that can’t wait.

So, have we convinced you, yet? Let’s get to work – together.
