Water systems in schools, colleges and universities are unused for long periods of time – particularly over the summer break, which provides the perfect breeding ground for legionella.
Many school buildings, both public and private contain old, adapted water systems, creating long pipe-runs and dead-legs – again perfect for legionella bacteria to grow in water.
We have a large portfolio of independent, academies, trusts and local authority schools namely, Walhampton School, Bryanston School and Bournemouth School.

This is an excellent way to monitor exactly how much water you're using throughout the day and night.
By logging regular readings every 15 minutes you are able to build an understanding of how your water is being used and when. This will allow you to easily identify potential leaks on your network which may result in a large water bill.

- Calorifiers and hot water cylinders
- De-scaling and disinfection of shower heads and hoses
- Flushing of little used outlets

“AquaCare were brilliant from the outset and came and surveyed and offered a complete solution within two weeks. Even better for us was that the job actually came in at below the expected cost and we were able to modify our heating controls to make it run more efficiently within the price. I would not hesitate in recommending AquaCare for any works. The levels of workmanship are high and carried out efficiently and their staff are well informed.” - Mr Player, Bournemouth School
“We have found the service provided by Aquacare to be professional, prompt and reliable, and would have no hesitation recommending them to others. Michele, our contact at AquaCare, has been crucial in building the relationship. She’s so helpful and if we ask her to do anything she does it without question. Since we switched to AquaCare there has been a noticeable, positive difference in service.” - Jon Mortimer, Bryanston’s Estates Bursar
“We had a problem with low water pressure in the school because of an issue with the main water connection. AquaCare came out and solved the problem for us. They installed a wider diameter supply main, bypassing the aged water tower and putting the school back on mains supply. The results were immediate and significant – higher water pressure throughout the school and staff quarters, and with minimum disruption – thank you AquaCare.” - A spokesman for Walhampton school
