The Value of purified water testing
WHO Guidance on HPC Water Testing
"(Microbial) Growth is typically reflected in higher HPC values measured in water samples.
Elevated HPC levels occur especially in stagnant parts of piped distribution systems, in domestic plumbing, in bottled water and in plumbed-in devices, such as softeners, carbon filters and vending machines.
HPC measurements can be used to monitor the performance of filtration or disinfection processes.
In piped distribution systems, HPC measurements are assumed to respond primarily to distribution system conditions. These arise from stagnation, loss of residual disinfectant, high levels of assimilable organic carbon in the water, higher water temperature and availability of particular nutrients.
HPC measurements are used:
- to indicate the effectiveness of water treatment processes, thus as an indirect indication of pathogen removal;
- as a measure of numbers of regrowth organisms that may or may not have sanitary significance"
