Our Services

At pHX Water, we take the hassle away from water maintenance. You can depend on us for all the cleaning, sampling, and reporting services you need to meet water maintenance regulations and provide safe drinking water.

We can protect your customers, clients, and employees from harmful bacteria.

Legionella is a naturally occurring form of bacteria found in water sources such as rivers, lochs, ponds, and reservoirs which can be found all over East Kilbride. When water is pumped into your hot water tank or cold storage tank, legionella has a new breeding ground. If not properly managed, the non-hazardous amounts of legionella can rapidly multiply and pose a threat to health.

Legionella enters the body through the respiratory system via droplets of water. Even a small amount of legionella causes a 10% mortality rate.

Water systems are an often overlooked yet essential part of any commercial or industrial building. Without a water tank, your building would not be able to serve its purpose. It is important to regularly check the levels of bacteria in your water tank.

Our legionella risk assessment and water tank cleaning services identify and eliminate harmful levels of bacteria, biofilm, and debris in your tank.


Who Is at Risk of Legionella?

In East Kilbride, any building that has a private water supply must be subject to a legionella risk assessment.

Any water system that stores and/or recirculates water is at high risk of breeding excess amounts of legionella. Below are a few water vessels that should be considered for a regular legionella risk assessment.

  • Hot water tanks
  • Cold storage tanks
  • Hot tubs
  • Swimming pools


What Causes an Increase in Legionella?

Legionella is present in small amounts in natural water sources as can be seen throughout East Kilbride.

Once stored in your hot or cold water tank, legionella is at constant risk of breeding. Temperature is the most important factor when considering how to avoid excess amounts of legionella.

Here are a few important facts about legionella:

  • It is dormant in temperatures below 20°C
  • It cannot survive in temperatures above 60°C
  • It begins to breed between 20°C and 45°C

In many cases, it is difficult to maintain a constant water tank temperature. This is why it is crucial to book an annual risk assessment.
