Legionella Remedial Work: Example of Work in Cold Water Systems
Legionella risk assessment is a crucial step in ensuring the safety of water systems. Once the risk assessment is complete, remedial work actions must be taken to remove or reduce the risk. The design principles should focus on preventing temperatures within the system that promote the growth of microorganisms, including Legionella.
At Techright Environmental, our remedial team carries out various tasks to address these risks. For example, they may install a new lid with a R31 tank breather and ingress screens, insulate pipes and tanks to prevent heat loss or transfer, and re-route pipework to ensure proper water flow. Additionally, they may replace and lower the ballcock to reduce the volume of stored water, and clean and chlorinate the water tank, providing a certificate as proof. While these actions may only need to be done once, regular inspections and cleaning are necessary to maintain the safety of the water system.
