Regular cleaning and disinfection of water systems is essential to control water hygiene as sludge, sediment and scale can build up in a water system and provide favourable conditions for the Legionella bacteria to multiply. Different water systems require different types of treatment and H2o is experienced in all types of disinfection from mains supplies to water storage tanks.
ACoP L8 states that water systems should be cleaned and disinfected when routine inspection shows it to be necessary and/or if work has been carried out on the water system which may have lead to contamination. Specific features of a water system that regularly need cleaned and disinfected include:
- Cold water storage tanks;
- Hot water cylinders;
- Water supply downservices;
- Cooling towers / evaporative condensers; and
- New or contaminated mains water supply pipe work.
H2o Cost Reduction Services uses highly trained staff and specialist equipment to clean and disinfect any water system with health and safety being paramount in all our work. Upon completion of the water system disinfection we will issue a Certificate of Disinfection in accordance with BS6700 for inclusion in the site log book in order to remain compliant with ACoP L8.
Additional services that H2o provide are all types of water tank refurbishments and upgrades in order for our clients to meet all current water regulations and ACoP L8 recommendations. Also, where the safe microbiological condition of a water system cannot be guaranteed H2o can supply, install and service automated chemical dosing systems.
