The Approved Code of Practice L8 imposes strict duties on site managers to ensure that equipment containing water, such as storage cisterns, hot water calorifiers and water fittings are regularly monitored and kept in a condition where they cannot harbour potentially hazardous micro-organisms – in particular Legionella pneumophila.

Water cisterns and hot water calorifiers should be regularly inspected and cleaned/disinfected, as required.

Whitewater can offer a complete cleaning and disinfection service, using a range of disinfectants, including sodium hypochlorite, chloride dioxide and silver peroxide.
