Clean & Disinfection

What is Clean & Disinfection?

Clean & disinfection is exactly as it sounds – the cleaning and disinfection of water systems to ensure they comply with health & safety regulations and prevent Legionella bacteria from reaching potentially harmful levels.


Who needs to consider Clean & Disinfection?

Any business or organisation with a water system needs to keep its system clean. Different types of system will have different requirements when it comes to cleaning them. For example, showers and spray taps should be cleaned regularly and the frequency for cleaning hot and cold water systems or cooling towers would be determined by inspections and assessment of contamination potential.


Your responsibilities for Clean & Disinfection

You have a responsibility to keep your water system clean. Conducting a clean and disinfection process can be determined by 4 main factors:

  • If an inspection assesses that it requires it
  • If the system has been subject to alterations
  • If your monitoring plan determines that it is required as a measure to minimise risk
  • Following an outbreak or suspected outbreak of legionellosis

Clean and disinfection services should be carried out in line with the Approved Code of Practice (ACoP) L8, BS 8558: 2011 and Water Supply (Water Quality) Regulations 2010.
