Water Hygiene FAQ'S
One of the most common ways to determine if bacteria is present in your water is to use a water test kit. This involves testing for a very wide range of biological, organic and physical chemistry properties. However, it is always best to get a professional to conduct these tests as they will carry out the analysis to the standard regulatory requirements.
Limescale in water can be removed in a number of ways. The most common way is to use common products that can be found around the house. For example, washing up liquid, white vinegar and bicarbonate of soda to name a few. However, there are many commercial descaling products for tougher stains, and for more serious issues you can always ask ARA Environmental for help.
Legionella is a type of bacteria that can grow in water. The bacteria thrives in warm and hot water, however, in buildings and in summer months, even cold water systems can reach temperatures sufficient for legionella to grow. Water that is contaminated with this bacteria can spread Legionnaires’ disease to those who have come into contact with it.
However, through temperature control, Legionella bacteria growth can be actively prevented within water systems. By avoiding danger temperatures, the bacteria will be unable to multiply and thrive.
All water systems should be monitored for legionella bacteria. At minimum, a legionella risk assessment should be reviewed every 2 years. It should also be updated any time there is a significant change made to your water systems.
While annual water tank cleaning is not a legal requirement, annual water tank inspections are. It is the responsibility of business owners/ employers, landlords and responsible persons to maintain safe water systems and prevent and reduce the proliferation of legionella bacteria within those water systems.
Furthermore, annual water tank inspections must be carried by a qualified assessor. The assessor will inspect the tank both internally and externally to determine whether water tank clean and disinfection services are required.
