Swimming pools, spas and fountains in residential properties and healthcare premises offer a level of luxury and therapeutic benefit to their occupants, but the temperatures and water conditions they create make them high-risk locations for the growth of Legionella and other waterborne bacteria. Premises managers needs to ensure extra care is taken for safe enjoyment and use of the facilities under their control.
The respected authority on swimming pool management is the Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group (PWTAG), which has published its Code of Practice and swimming pool treatment guide. Public Health England has given detailed advice on spas and whirlpool baths, now accompanied by HSE’s HSG282 – Control of legionella and other infectious agents in spa-pool systems. Aqualogic ensures that site procedures are in line with these highly important documents. Importantly, our staff are trained by PWTAG approved training providers.
Regular plant inspections ensure that your water system continues to run safely and the control programme remains effective. Depending on the level of risk, we may suggest that these are carried out on a monthly, or six-monthly basis.
Aqualogic carry out site visits and conduct detailed risk assessments to give an accurate estimate of the risk posed by Legionella bacteria to that site. Testing involves the collection of water samples for thorough analysis, prior to developing a detailed report that indicates your risk factors.
