Cleaning and disinfection of water storage systems

A certificate of completion is issued on completion of the contract.

Water storage tanks must be kept clean - neglected tanks and reservoirs are high risk areas for the spread of the potentially fatal legionella and other types of bacteria which can proliferate in stagnant or contaminated conditions.

Descale & Chlorination Services Ltd uses various methods of cleaning and disinfection techniques for hot and cold water systems:

  • using chemical disinfectants such as chlorination
  • thermal disinfection, ie by heating the water to a temperature at which legionella can not survive.

Disinfection, cleaning and manual desludging of cooling towers should be undertaken at least twice a year, but more frequent cleaning may be necessary depending on local environmental conditions such as dirty atmospheres and the conclusions reached in the risk assessment. We offer the following services:
