Has Your Facility Been Closed for Weeks?

Flush the Water Pipes

Louisville Water delivers drinking water through a network of pipes to your business.  After the water flows through the meter, building owners are responsible for maintaining water quality. 

As buildings reopen, businesses, schools and property management teams will begin restarting systems that have been empty or under used.  Properly flushing plumbing is essential before reoccupying.

Flushing water lines and water using appliances, is an easy way to ensure that high water quality is maintained.  It moves older water, that has been sitting in the pipes, out of the building and brings in fresh water.

Flushing is easy - either follow the steps below or watch our short video for an animated tutorial.
