Maintaining good water hygiene standards

Maintaining good standards of water hygiene and controlling levels of dangerous waterborne bacteria, including Pseudomonasand Legionella bacteria, which causes the potentially fatal condition Legionnaires’ disease, is an essential component in the successful management of any engineered water system.

Dirty and poorly maintained water systems, old and dilapidated pipework, neglected water tanks and poorly managed cooling towers can lead to a significant deterioration in water quality standards. Importantly, such conditions can also create ideal environments for the growth and proliferation of dangerous waterborne pathogens such as Legionella. This can significantly increase risks to the health and safety of employees, customers and other people, but it can also have a legal impact on your business as you may be breaking the law, exposing you and your business to potential legal action or civil prosecution.
