Cold water tank cleaning and disinfection services are core business for Watercare. We have been carrying out this type of work for over 15 years and have built up a wealth of expertise on which to draw. The expertise we have gained as a specialist in this field ensures that water systems will comply with the latest Health and Safety Guidelines and will avoid any violation of current regulations. This applies to all types of tanks, from routine domestic sizes to very large commercial tanks.
Numerous types of bacteria can be present in water, including the potentially fatal Legionella. It is important that water storage tanks are kept clean in order to prevent sludging, sediment, and scale, all of which provide favourable conditions in which Legionella bacteria can grow. We can help you to take the necessary steps to minimize the risk of bacterial growth in your tanks, both now and in the future.
In order to control the Legionella risk and maintain water hygiene, domestic and commercial water systems, including storage tanks, should be inspected regularly and if deemed necessary, physically cleaned and disinfected. Disinfection and physical cleaning of domestic and commercial water systems is essential if water hygiene is to be maintained and the risk of Legionnaires Disease is to be controlled. Neglected tanks, reservoirs and cooling towers are extremely high risk areas for the spread of disease as Legionella bacteria can proliferate.
