Water Treatment - Vans


Water is an essential part of our lives; none of us can exist without it.  However, have you ever wondered how clean is the water you use?  It is essential that water storage tanks and cooling towers are kept clean on a continual basis. Neglected water storage tanks and reservoirs are high risk areas for the spread of the potentially fatal Legionella and other types of bacteria, which proliferate in stagnant or contaminated conditions.

Disinfection, chemical cleaning and manual desludging of cooling towers should be undertaken at least twice a year as described in the Approved Code of Practice ACoPL8/HSG274 Parts 1, 2 & 3 and more frequent cleaning may be necessary depending on the local environmental conditions.
