Safe, Compliant Water Systems

In order to ensure that a water system is safe, hygienic, clean and fit for use, it is vital that it is properly and professionally tested, treated and monitored. Whether the system in question is for drinking water, a HVAC system or a storage tank, if the water becomes contaminated then there can be consequences not just for the system but those who use it and are within its vicinity as well as the business or individual responsible for it.

When water systems are improperly maintained or left unchecked for long periods of time, they can develop dangerous build-ups of contaminants such as scale, corrosive water and microbiological growth. Whilst this might not sound that harmful, it actually can be in a lot of ways.

Accumulations of scale, rust, corrosive water and the like not only impact the efficiency of a water system but make the chances of break downs and replacement parts more likely which can be costly. Having the system treated regularly helps to not only keep the system running efficiently but reduces the chance of faults occurring or parts failing as well as increases the lifespan of the system which all helps to save a substantial amount of money over time.

Microbial growth can include parasites, viruses, bacteria and a whole host of unwanted contaminants that make the water extremely dangerous. Some people make the mistake of thinking that just because a water systems purpose isn’t for drinking water that it can’t harm people, but this is incorrect. Bacteria such as Legionella, can be easily inhaled from aerosolised particles such as in a shower, air conditioning system or steam from a spa pool and can lead to Legionnaires disease. This is an extremely serious disease that can make people extremely unwell, cause long term health problems and in some cases prove fatal. Keeping your system compliant and taking every reasonable action to ensure that it is safe is the best way to protect yourself, your business, employees, residents and those who use the system.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s involved in water treatment services?

There are different methods that can be used to effectively treat water systems and the type that is used can depend on the type of system, its size and which issues or contaminants have been identified from test results of samples taken. A water treatment specialist will take into account all of this as well as their assessment of the system to produce a tailored treatment plan using the most relevant methods, products and equipment.

Some of the aspects of water treatment can include;

-          Chemical treatments

-          Descaling

-          System flushing

-          Disinfecting agents

When carried out by an experienced and qualified professional, these water treatments are extremely successful at quickly resolving contamination issues that have been affecting the system, in turn making them more efficient and safer for everyone involved.

How often should I get water treated?

How often a water system requires treatment will depend on a number of factors including what type of system it is, its complexity and its size. A professional water treatment specialist will be able to analyse and assess your system to determine how regularly it requires testing, treating and monitoring.

There are some signs to look out for which could indicate that a water system needs treating such as – it has become less efficient, parts have broken or required replacing due to rust, scale or corrosion or people have become unwell within the premises with symptoms that could be related to waterborne diseases.

As a landlord, facilities manager or business owner of properties containing a water system, you are responsible for taking every necessary and reasonable step to ensure that the system is fit for purpose and safe to use.

How important is water treatment?

When a water system is left without regular monitoring, testing and treatments, contaminants can infiltrate the water to levels that become dangerous. Scale, rust, heavy metals, viruses, parasites and bacteria are just some of the impurities that can build up and thrive in untreated water systems causing them to be less effective, break down more often, require replacement parts, have a shorter lifespan and even be harmful to those around them.

Even when the water in question isn’t for consuming, washing or won’t even come in contact with humans, that does not mean that it doesn’t need treating and it can still be extremely dangerous. Contaminated water can be aerosolised in and around certain systems and environments such as steam and air conditioning where the particle can easily be inhaled into the lungs, causing potentially fatal illnesses and diseases.
