In September 2011, Mueller Co., a leading North American manufacturer and marketer of infrastructure and flow control products for use in potable water distribution networks and treatment facilities, expanded its product line with the addition of the Hydro-Guard brand of automated flushing systems and water quality sample stations.
The Hydro-Guard® system uses modern technologies, including SCADA compatibility, to monitor water quality in distribution piping and automatically initiate flushing as necessary to maintain disinfectant residuals as required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This system conserves water, reduces chlorine consumption, and improves customer satisfaction by helping avoid taste and odor, while requiring minimal supervision by utility personnel. On average, one Hydro-Guard Automatic Flushing System can save as much as 180,000 gallons of water and more than $7,000 annually compared to traditional hydrant flushing methods.
The Hydro-Guard system is manufactured at Mueller Co's Cleveland TN plant, and sold through authorized Mueller Co. field sales outlets. For additional information or specifications related to these various flushing automation products and sampling solutions, please e-mail the Hydro-Guard® Sales and Support staff at Sales@Hydro-Guard.com or call Customer Service at 866.642.7500.
