    Contaminated Water Systems

    Sometimes individuals or organisations make the mistake of assuming that just because their water system isn’t used for drinking water that it therefore can’t be harmful to people and try to cut corners and costs by not keeping up with treatment and maintenance as often as they should.

    However, just because the water is not consumed, it does not mean that it is OK to neglect the system. Legionella for example is a natural bacteria found in water which, if left unmonitored can rise to dangerous levels and doesn’t need a person to drink the contaminated water to become infected. If water containing 

    Legionella is aerosolised then it can easily be inhaled into the lungs resulting in Legionnaires Disease which is extremely unpleasant, can cause long term health issues and in some cases can even be fatal.

    As well as the potential risk that contaminated systems can cause to humans, there is also the financial downside to not properly maintaining your water system. When rust, scale and corrosion is left to build up, it affects the systems efficiency and can cause it to break down and require replacement parts more often as well as shorten the lifespan of the system, all of which is extremely costly and can be greatly reduced with regular maintenance, treatment and monitoring.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      The cost of a water treatment plan will depend on the size, type and complexity of the system as well as how much and what type of treatment is required. The cost of properly maintaining a system however is a corner that should never be cut in order to try to save money for a number of reasons including;

      –          Untreated, contaminated systems are less efficient and their running costs higher which means wasting money every day.

      –          Effective water treatments help to resolve issues and can have systems running at peak efficiency, reducing running costs and improving productivity.

      –          Systems with build-ups of rust, scale and corrosion tend to breakdown more often, require more replacement parts and have a shorter lifespan. Water treatment helps to eliminate these issues which results in a healthier system that costs less.

      –          In the event that there is an outbreak traced back to the system, the person responsible will need to provide proof that they took every reasonable measure to ensure the water system was safe. Failure to provide this can result in heavy fines, penalties, loss of business, closures, damage to reputation, legal action and in some cases even a prison sentence.

      Having a professional water treatment and maintenance plan put in place helps to provide a detailed timetable of when your system requires testing and treating. This helps to ensure that it doesn’t get forgotten about or left longer than required which can have potentially disastrous results.

      If you do not have a plan already in place and are unsure if your system requires treatment then there are a few things you can check or do such as;

      –          Find documentation of when the last tests, checks or maintenance were carried out.

      –          See if there are any signs that the water system is contaminated such as working less efficiently, making more noise, tubes or pipes freezing, getting blocked, changing pressures and obvious signs of biological or microbial growth.

      –          If in doubt safe is always better than sorry, especially when it comes to water systems so book in with a specialist to get it assessed and treated if required.

      If you are responsible for a water system and are looking to secure the services of a water treatment specialist then be sure to use a professional, trusted provider with the proper accreditations.
