Water tank cleaning and disinfection
Over time cold water tanks, often found in lofts, basements and airing cupboards become dirty with debris, sediment, scale, sludge, biofilm, fouling, wall mould, stagnation, rust & corrosion, foreign bodies and plant growth. Should contaminants enter our water tanks or build up over time, they provide a breeding ground for bacteria such as Legionella bacteria and E.coli.
An annual inspection of cold water storage tanks will determine if cleaning and/or disinfection is required, as stated in the ACoP L8 (HSG 274 Part 2). Annual water tank cleaning is not a legal requirement, but annual water tank inspections are, where the water tank is inspected for its condition internally and externally. The water tank inspection will identify if a water tank clean is required or not. Get a water risk assessment today.
