What the Project Entailed

This project consisted of pre-flushing, chemical cleaning and dynamic flushing of (lthw) low temperature hot water and (hthw) high temperature hot water systems (operating at 136oC) to BSRIA BG29 standards. Proportional balancing, setting to work and commissioning of air and water systems to CIBSE Code A & W. Legionella risk assessments to ACoP L8 & HSG 274 Part 2, domestic services chlorination and post works sampling.

Specialist Treatment

High Temperature Hot Water systems require low solid content so specialist inhibitors were blended to ensure long term protection to the system, deionised water was used during chemical cleaning and final system fill.

What We Brought to the job

Close co-ordination with client and end user as base and adjacent buildings were live.

Having worked in partnership with Comfort Commissioning Services for a period of time I have been highly impressed by their professional approach towards supporting my school. All staff who visit the school are highly proficient in their role and support my site manager to maintain high standards of safety. The communication, time keeping and flexibility provided have ensured that the service fits seamlessly around a busy school day. Jeremy Hallum, Head Teacher Heathlands Primary School
