Water Treatment in Kent

Water Treatment in Kent

Water systems within businesses, premises, and facilities are often vital, providing crucial amenities such as hot water, heating, drinking water, or within industrial settings; an essential component within production and manufacturing methods.

Keeping your water system clean, safe and efficient is very important but can often be overlooked, the consequences of which can be disastrous for businesses and for those responsible.

Testing & Analysis

Our engineers take samples to test and analyse the water which help us to understand the level of contamination and decide a suitable treatment plan.

In order to ensure the highest standards at all times, all of our tests are externally analysed by laboratories that are UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) approved. Some sampling tests can provide immediate onsite results and provide initial indications of chemical conditions which allow us to quickly identify urgent issues and act quickly to resolve them.

Bacteria Control

Our experts will create a tailored plan of action to treat your system including any cleaning, disinfecting, flushing or descaling and once complete will retest to ensure compliance to the required standards and regulations.

Water System Management

In order to prevent issues from arising in the future or going unnoticed, we can formulate an effective management plan that covers the ongoing monitoring and control required to negate the risks that can affect the system.

Our team of specialist engineers are all fully trained, experienced and knowledgeable in all aspects of water treatment services that we deliver and work hard to ensure that your water quality and hygiene is at the highest possible standards.

Keeping Your System Compliant

When water systems are left, without any checks, tests, or maintenance, it often won’t be long before issues start to occur that can prove to be harmful for the system and those who use it. Build-ups of scale, rust, and corrosion can not only lead to loss of system efficiency but help to provide the perfect environment for microbial growth, harmful bacteria, viruses, and parasites.

Sometimes those in charge of water systems make the mistake of thinking that just because a water system doesn’t contain drinking water that it can’t be harmful to people within the premises, but this is not true at all. Legionella for example is a dangerous bacteria in systems where water particles are often aerosolised, they can easily be inhaled into the lungs, causing Legionnaires Disease which can sometimes be fatal.

An outbreak of something like Legionnaires can be extremely detrimental, not only for those who are unfortunate enough to catch it but for those responsible for the contaminated water system. Landlords, organisations, and business owners have a duty of care to ensure that their water systems are safe and must take every reasonable step to assess and control the risks associated with them. Failure to do so or being unable to provide adequate proof that you have taken the necessary preventative measures can result in severe fines, legal action and even a prison sentence.

Does my water system need treating?

If you are a landlord, business owner or facilities manager within premises that contain a water system then you are responsible for ensuring that it is safe and fit for purpose.

How often it needs checking, testing or treating will depend on the type of system it is, its size and how complex it is. If a water system has become inefficient or there is reason to believe that it could be contaminated then it is always a good idea to get it looked at by a professional.

Untreated water can contain harmful contaminants including heavy metals, scale, corrosion, fertilisers, parasites, bacteria, pesticides, viruses and even animal and human waste, all of which can be extremely dangerous.

What are water treatments?

Water treatments are used to clean, filter, disinfect, purify or decontaminate the water within water systems, making them safe and suitable for their intended use. A build-up of contaminants can have a hugely detrimental affect on the system as well as being potentially harmful for those around it which is why it is important to ensure that water systems are effectively treated and maintained.

This may include eliminating harmful bacteria or contaminates from drinking water systems, the removal of corrosion and rust from industrial units or treating commercial heating systems, to name just a few.

Depending on the type of system there are various products, processes, methods and techniques that can be used to effectively treat water systems and the type that is used will be based on the assessment made of the system and any issues that have been identified.
