Water Hygiene

Providing the health, safety and hygiene of your water systems.

ACoP L8 Compliance

Legionella bacteria grows in warm water typically between 20 and 50 degrees centigrade, but proliferates fastest in stagnant water at 35 to 46 degrees centigrade.

At the heart of the Health and Safety Executive's ACoP L8 for control of legionella, is to undertake a risk assessment of the entire water system and implement a scheme of control.

Sampling and Analysis

Normally, the routine analysis of domestic water systems is not recommended by the ACoP L8.

However, under certain circumstances, such as where the temperature regime cannot be maintained, the testing for Legionella and other organisms is seen as being essential in the overall control of a system. In the case of cooling systems, the sampling and analysis for Legionella Pneumophila is a quarterly requirement. 

Tank Cleaning and Disinfection

Cleaning and disinfection of cold-water storage tanks and complete water systems are carried out to BS8558 standards or the ACoP L8 by our trained technicians.

All of our work carries a Completion Certificate.


Our Solution to Combatting Legionella

We can undertake an assessment of your water systems, highlight any areas of potential risk and provide you with a detailed legionella risk assessment report.

We will make recommendations for the implementation of an effective monitoring and maintenance program, which will minimise the risk of a legionella outbreak.

Where a risk assessment is already in place, we can review this for you or undertake an audit.
