Ship Sanitation: Potable Water Mobile App
Ships may be equipped with two or three different water systems: potable water, non-potable water used for other operational procedures and water for firefighting.
How does it work?
Whenever practicable, only one water system should be installed to supply potable water for drinking, personal hygiene, culinary purposes, dishwashing, and hospital and laundry purposes. Non-potable water, if used on the ship, needs to be loaded and distributed through a completely different piping system, which should be color coded according to existing international standards.
Use the Ship Sanitation: Potable Water mobile app for document review. The app reviews the following: Constructional drawings of potable water system. Drinking-water analysis reports. Medical logbook or gastrointestinal record book (or both). Water safety plan. Maintenance instructions of treatment devices.
