InDepth Water Management are specialist in water tank cleaning. This applies to all types of tanks, from routine domestic sizes to very large commercial tanks. When we use water to drink, wash and cook, it is essential then that we store it in a clean and healthy environment. Irregular cleaning and disinfecting of tanks could lead to the growth of harmful bacteria that are the cause of several diseases.
Numerous types of bacteria can be present in water, including the potentially fatal Legionella. It is important that water storage tanks are kept clean in order to prevent sludging, sediment, and scale, all of which provide favourable conditions in which Legionella bacteria can grow. We can help you to take the necessary steps to minimize the risk of bacterial growth in your tanks, both now and in the future.
In order to control the Legionella risk and maintain water hygiene, water storage tanks should be inspected regularly as part of your monitoring programme that was formed in line with your risk assessment and, if necessary, physically cleaned and then disinfected.
Under the National Guidelines for the Control of Legionellosis in Ireland 2009, cold water storage tanks should be regularly inspected as part of your monitoring programme, the frequency of these inspections are usually annual, however, your site-specific risk assessment which should be completed may indicate that a more frequent inspection and maintenance regime is required.
