WHERE AND WHEN IS CHLORINATION MOST VITAL?
13/03/2017

To prevent nasty diseases like Legionella from causing big problem, cleaning every watertanks is an essential practice. As part of an ongoing hygiene plan, regular testing and chlorination is one habit you should get into. With experience in working with a substantial number of systems, we are the ones to call you need water tank cleaning and system chlorination.

Chlorinating water systems consists of adding chlorine into the supply at a pre-set contact time and strength for the sake of disinfection. This is a widely recognised and proven approach of treatment and aids in the removal of pathogenic organisms from both tanks and the pipe works. This method originated in the early 20th century and is still used extensively today to treat various set ups, including those found in schools, factories, and hospitals.

Some of the most crucial times when chlorination is necessary include as part of major extensions, new installations, and system changes. New installations for example are deemed to be part of a structure’s commissioning procedure. Therefore, under the Water Supply Fittings Regulations 1999, pipe work needs to be disinfected prior to a connection.

Dormant water supplies are also a focus for chlorination efforts. If the system has not seen regular usage in recent times, it is unlikely that the pipe work will have been flushed regularly. This increases the risk of dangerous bacteria growing. Legionella in particular thrives in those locations where water stands unattended and has a temperature of 20 degrees Celsius or above. Other places where inactivity is likely to occur includes areas with too much water stored up and where services are practiced at an infrequent rate.

At Nationwide Water Solutions we practice every tested and recognised method of chlorination.
