Water Treatment Services Musselburgh - Legionella Risk Assessment

One of our main focuses is protecting people in Musselburgh from the risks of Legionella.

Legionella is a form of bacteria that occurs naturally in water sources like locks, ponds, rivers, reservoirs, and rivers. Very small amounts of legionella are not harmful. When legionella is pumped into water storage systems, it enters an environment that is different from its usual surroundings. Water tanks are the perfect breeding ground for legionella.

If water treatment systems in Musselburgh are not properly monitored, legionella can multiply and pose a serious threat to human health. When someone consumes water from a water tank that has high levels of legionella, they are at risk of developing unwanted side effects. Small amounts of legionella can cause a 10% mortality rate.

That is why it is so important to book regular legionella risk assessments. Legionella risk assessments ensure that your water supply is clean and safe for human consumption.

Water treatment systems all over Musselburgh need to be tested for Legionella. At pHX Water, we handle residential, commercial, and industrial water treatment services. Our legionella risk assessment water treatment process involves an initial assessment followed by a simple, easy to read report.

Trained water treatment engineers will enter your water tank and assess the quality of the water as well as the state of the tank itself. Once they have assessed the situation they will write a report that details everything you need to know about the state of your water.

Our engineers provide detailed information about:

  • Poor system designs
  • Poor plumbing practices
  • Causes for concern (such as corrosion)
  • Ways to improve water quality
  • Concerning findings
  • Further action suggestions such as sedimentation water treatments

Property owners love the fact that they can tell which findings need urgent attention with a glance. Our traffic light system means that our customers can understand the assessment within seconds. Urgent actions have a red traffic light, whereas positive findings are labelled with a green light.

It is important to note that legionella risk assessments are not just for water tanks. We also offer people all over Musselburgh hot tub water treatments.


What Causes an Increase in Legionella?

Legionella originally comes from natural water sources like lochs and rivers. A small concentration of legionella in an extremely large environment such as a river does not pose a threat to life.

Private water suppliers pump natural water sources into water tanks. When natural water is stored in hot and cold water tanks, legionella exists in an environment that is drastically different to its natural environment.

Legionella is very susceptible to changes in temperature. Even slight fluctuations in temperature can cause an increase in legionella. Although water tanks are most susceptible to increased rates of legionella, both hot and water tanks need to be regularly tested.

Here are some things that residential, commercial, and industrial building owners need to consider.

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


Who Is at Risk of Legionella?

Legionella can pose a threat to anyone who consumes water from a building with a private water supply. Buildings have a private water supply when their water tank is not or cannot be connected to public water supplies. In this case, the building owners must go through all the water treatment processes necessary in Musselburgh to ensure their supply is fit for human consumption.

It is important to remember that property owners need to test a wide range of appliances for legionella. If you have any of the following, you need to book a legionella assessment.

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


Who Needs a Legionella Risk Assessment?

People who own properties that use private water supplies must book a legionella risk assessment once a year. Under Scottish law, property owners with a private supply are responsible for their water supply. If an employee or member of the general public were to fall ill or die from excess amounts of legionella, the property owner would be considered responsible.


Water Treatment Services Musselburgh - Water Tank Cleaning

Although water treatment services in Musselburgh are the first line of defence against harmful bacteria like legionella, it is also important to regularly clean the inside of water tanks.

Large industrial and commercial water tanks can supply 1000s of people with water every week. Over time, stains and sediment form on the water and the tank walls. Poor surface maintenance can even cause a biofilm to appear. Biofilms are a collection of more than one microorganism such as fungi, bacteria, or protists.

Our teams use specialist water treatment chemicals to remove harmful biofilms and clean the surfaces of tanks. Every practice we implement is industry approved and has been tried and tested by years of successful appointments.

We do not just scrub away a few stains. We use strong chemicals to return your tank to its original state. Just one visit from our specialist team can make your water system look like new again.


How Frequently Should I Book PHX Tank Cleaning Services?

Our water treatment works best when booked every 6 to 12 months. Official guidelines state that business owners, landlords, and industrial space owners should book an appointment once every 12 months to ensure that their water is safe for human consumption.

Regular cleaning appointments are an important part of tank maintenance. It is easy to push water tank cleaning to the bottom of the list. If left unchecked, legionella can multiply and stains and rust can reduce the quality of your water.

Large water systems that supply lots of water are most at risk of developing legionella. Systems that supply both hot and cold water are also more likely to breed excessive amounts of legionella. These tanks can alternate between hot and cold several times in a typical day. In these cases, we recommend booking an appointment every 6 months.

The more people who depend on your water tank for clean water, the sooner you will need to contact our team.

Our water treatment engineers use chemicals to remove harmful stains. Water treatment engineers can remove harmful amounts of bacteria, biofilm, and debris. Where necessary, our engineers use sedimentation water treatments to remove any biofilms in the water whilst they clean the inside of your tank.

Although we recommend booking a cleaning every 6 to 12 months, there are certain situations where booking an appointment is urgent. If any of the following situations apply to your system, contact our team immediately.

  • A water inspection has found a large amount of legionella
  • Your water tank has been altered or entered for maintenance purposes, which could lead to contamination
  • There has been an outbreak or even a suspected outbreak of legionella


Water Treatment Services Musselburgh - Private Water Supply Testing

Property owners have a private water supply when their water tank is not connected to a network that is supplied by Scottish water. Most domestic and industrial properties have a private water supply, whereas most residential properties are connected to Scottish water.

Landlords that are connected to a private water supply still need to adhere to water treatment system laws in Musselburgh. Around 3% of the Scottish population drink from a private water supply, which means that 163,500 people are obligated to test their water system by law.


What Is Private Water Supply Testing Musselburgh?

Private water supply testing is sometimes referred to as private water supply sampling. Sampling should be conducted whenever there is reason to suggest that a water supply does not meet guidelines as set by the governing body.

Water testing involves taking a sample from a water tank that is connected to a private water supply. This water sample is then taken back to our water treatment plant and tested to ensure that the amount of chemicals, metals, and biofilms in the water supply stays below a certain threshold.

Private supply testing can only provide a snapshot of the water at the moment that it was taken. Property owners choose us for sampling services because we work as quickly as possible to create realistic snapshots of their water tank health.
