WATER SYSTEM MANAGEMENT
BY UK LEGIONELLA WATER SERVICES
Keep Your Water Storage Sparkling Clean
At many facilities, Legionella bacteria can lurk undetected in water systems, posing serious health risks if left unchecked. As your partner in safety, we want to help you proactively manage this threat. By working together, we can implement the water management strategies necessary to safeguard your building occupants.
Legionella thrive in temperatures between 20°C and 45°C and stagnant water. To inhibit growth, hot water heaters should be set at 60°C or higher. Mixing valves can then reduce temperatures to prevent scalding at taps and showers. Keeping cold water below 20°C with insulation also helps.
Regular flushing of infrequently used outlets and eliminating system dead ends are important to prevent stagnation. We recommend cleaning fixtures and tanks quarterly. Monitoring temperatures monthly at key locations will allow us to ensure your whole system remains outside Legionella’s comfort zone.
We can also advise on selecting components like pipes and tanks that discourage bacterial growth. Streamlined layouts and minimizing stored water help too.
With routine assessments, adjustments, cleaning, and testing, we can work together to stay one step ahead of Legionella. Documenting these proactive measures will demonstrate your commitment to safety and regulatory compliance.
Our ultimate goal is simple – safeguarding the health and wellbeing of everyone in your building. We consider it a privilege to be your partner in protecting your occupants and assets from waterborne hazards like Legionella. Please reach out to us anytime to discuss implementing a customized water management plan for your facility.
