Is your water legionella free?

By April 5, 2017Legionella, News

It’s surprising how frequently we read press reports about sports premises suffering problems with their water systems. How certain are you that your water supply is clean, healthy, uncontaminated and legally compliant?

Are you clear on water?

You must have a safe, clean domestic water supply in order to safeguard your members, guests and employees. Your water tanks are one place you really don’t want a birdie.  They must be sound, clean and free from vermin and other pollutants, in order to ensure a clean water supply.  When did you last check or clean them?

Cold water tanks must also be adequately screened from sunlight and solar heat gain in order to prevent the formation of bacteria such as legionella. We clean, disinfect, restore and maintain water tanks so you can be confident that your domestic water is safe and healthy for everyone to use.

Avoid a Legionella outbreak

You must be equally confident that your piped water supply is clean and free from potentially deadly legionella bacteria. This means ensuring that your risk assessment is up to date and remedying any areas in the pipework where water can remain static and encourage the formation of legionella bacteria.

We are L8 approved and can provide testing for legionella as well as an accurate risk assessment. Within your domestic water supply to kitchens and washrooms, we can perform remedial work to remove pipework ‘dead-legs’ and rectify any areas where water is not flowing freely.

For ongoing compliance, we can provide basic training in monitoring for legionella, and ensure that you know how to flush the domestic water system through following periods when it hasn’t been used, in order to ensure a fresh, uncontaminated water supply.
