Water Hygiene

Cleanliness, water quality and microbiological control are essential factors in the safe operation of engineered water systems.

The term “Water Hygiene” is used to refer to practices which preserve the health of water systems, such as drinking water supplies, cooling towers, air handling units, swimming pools, spa pools, domestic water systems supplying showers or any application where an aerosol spray could be generated. This incorporates risk assessments to evaluate whether suitable control measures are in place, monitoring by testing the water to see whether harmful organisms are present, provision of treatment programmes and remedial actions such as chemical disinfections where required.
