Water Hygiene Solutions:

We offer tailored water hygiene services to help your business reduce the health risks of waterborne bacteria by identifying & assessing risks, developing action plans and providing solutions where required.

We offer the following services:

 

Legionella Risk Assessment

Legionella risk assessments are a legal requirement. The purpose of a risk assessment is to identify and assess all potential legionella risks within your property. We carry out risk assessments on hot and cold-water systems and provide our clients with a detailed risk assessment report which includes the following areas:

  • Executive summary
  • Scope of assessment, including clear identification of buildings systems and their use.
  • Identification of key personnel.
  • Identification of the risk systems.
  • Schematic diagrams or references to them.
  • Results of condition surveys including analysis and evaluation of risk for each system
  • Including an explanation of how the risk rating is derived.
  • Recommended and prioritised corrective actions.
  • The site and system-specific control measures.

Water Sampling and Analysis

We conduct water sampling and analysis as part of ongoing legionella and other waterborne bacteria preventative maintenance programmes. We use an UKAS-accredited laboratory which tests for a wide range of microbiological and chemical parameters. On receipt of the results, we issue a final report which contains a full breakdown of results as well as any corrective actions required.

Clean and Disinfection

Clean and disinfection is a key factor in minimising the transfer of legionella from water source to host. Performing a clean and disinfection of your water systems will help keep them clean and free from contaminants.

This will:

  • Improve water quality and system efficiency
  • Reduce build up from biofilm
  • Minimise the growth of Legionella
  • Minimise system failures
  • Help you comply with L8 practices.

TMV Servicing

Thermostatic Mixing Valves (TMVs) are typically used in water systems as anti-scald devices. Due to the temperatures that they operate at they are identified as being a contributory factor to the growth of waterborne bacteria such as legionella. It is for this reason that they require regular maintenance which includes fail-safe testing and full annual servicing.

 

Hot & Cold-Water Monitoring

Hot & cold-water outlets (tap, showers etc) should be monitored on a regular basis to ensure they reach the correct temperatures. This is essential to minimise the risk of legionella growth and to kill any bacteria.
