Contaminants can have a big impact on water supplies, potentially even making the resources unsafe for use. This is the point where we come in to provide a legionella risk assessment. Using it, we shall identify the current state of your water supply. It won’t take too long and you’ll also find our prices to be quite reasonable as well.
Performing these assessments for rental structures is an essential legal necessity. They form part of the landlord’s health and safety duties towards tenants. However, misunderstandings in this area typically cause issues. Either the tests are incorrect or no one does them at all. To help you avoid problems we’ve produced a list of the most recurring mistakes.
How well do you know the plumbing?
One mistake is that people fail to understand the plumbing. Doing a legionella test in a standard flat or house will probably be easy. But, you must know where all the thermostats and tanks are, and how water flows through the pipes. Something else you need to be aware of is the differences between the fittings you’ll be using. Dissimilar pieces of gear all come with their own levels of risk. Take care in areas where you’ve adapted the plumbing the years because there could be hot spots.
Not gathering visual evidence is another error people make. You need a schematic and some photographs. The accuracy and calibre of your drawing is of particular importance. The evidence will show the current condition of your fittings. It also serves as proof that suitable checks are taking place.
At Nationwide Water Solutions, our regular single day tests begin at about £400. For each extra day, we charge a daily rate of £300. The locations we can service include schools, colleges, universities, nursing homes, and hospitals. We also help landlords who own large blocks of homes.
