Comfort Services Group provide a range of pre and post-commissioning chlorination and sterilisation services for new and existing water systems. Our trained and highly experienced engineers carry out chemical treatment of domestic and commercial water systems within all regulatory and legal guidelines. Our chlorination and sterilisation services are carried out within the current HSC ACoP (2013) guidelines.
The core aim of the chlorination and sterilisation of water systems is to minimise the risk of bacterial growth and is essential practice in the running of a commercial water system. The primary target of bacterial control is Legionella and our sterilisation services follow HSG274 Pt2 which offers guidelines in the management and risk control of Legionella bacteria. The Legionella bacteria is most commonly associated with being the cause of Legionnaires disease with several high-profile instances making headline news in recent years. Legionnaires' disease shares many symptoms with pneumonia and is most commonly spread through water and air conditioning systems. Legionella bacteria is also the primary cause of other conditions including Pontiac fever.
Chlorination and sterilisation of new water systems should be carried out as part of the commissioning process before any new system is turned on or set-to-work. Water in an, otherwise efficient, water system can quickly become contaminated by a range of bacteria if cold water storage tanks are poorly, or irregularly, maintained. A build-up of contaminants in the system can aid the spread of bacteria including Legionella and e-coli. We recommend that regular testing and maintenance is carried out on cold water systems to help prevent contamination
In addition to carrying out chlorination and sterilisation treatments of water systems, Comfort Services Group can provide pre-installation risk assessments for legionella.
