A key aspect of the control of Legionella in water systems is to maintain the cleanliness of all water systems. Regular monitoring of hot and cold water storage vessels and their systems is required to identify presence of calcium carbonate scale, sediment, bio-films and signs of corrosion. Neglected water tanks and systems are high-risk areas for the proliferation of bacteria including Legionella pneumophilia, as they thrive in contaminated or stagnant conditions. When water droplets from these sources are disseminated and breathed-in this can result in the spread of Legionnaires disease.
A regular, comprehensive physical and chemical clean of these systems will limit the potential for high bacteria counts and followed by regular monitoring will ensure that your premises comply with codes of practice, whilst protecting their staff, customers and the public.
In our experience vermin and bird carcase are common place when trap doors and covers for tanks are not properly maintained so it is imperative that these are checked on an annual basis.
