Inspection of water systems

Inspection of Water Systems

At Lubron, we provide inspection services for water systems, catering to the needs of both domestic and commercial clients. Our comprehensive assessments ensure that water systems work safely and efficiently and that they comply with the latest industry regulations. Whether water sampling has indicated potential issues or your equipment isn’t working as well as it used to, we’re on hand to inspect your water system and provide a detailed analysis and an effective solution.

Domestic and commercial water system inspections

Our water system inspectors can conduct a detailed inspection of your property’s water system, examining pipes, fixtures, water heaters and filtration systems in order to detect any issues. We regularly carry out water inspections in both residential and commercial settings, ensuring the delivery of clean and safe water for your household, tenants, and business operations. Whether it’s a family home or a company premises, we can evaluate the entire water system infrastructure in a thorough and effective manner.

Cold water system checks

A cold water system check is suitable for any type of property that has a plumbing system delivering cold water. Whether a domestic property, commercial building, educational institution, healthcare facility, or industrial setting, it can help maintain the reliability and safety of the water supply. A cold water system check examines the components responsible for distributing cold water within a property, detecting problems such as leaks or water quality issues.

Cold water system analysis

Closed water system analysis involves assessing the closed-loop water systems commonly found in heating or cooling setups. In these systems, the water circulates within a closed loop without being exposed to the external environment. When we carry out this analysis, we’ll evaluate the performance, pressure, water quality, and integrity of the closed-loop system, ensuring it’s operating safely and efficiently.

Prevent Legionella contamination through water system inspections

Water system inspections play a key role in preventing Legionella contamination. By meticulously inspecting the various components of the water system, including the piping, fixtures and temperature controls, and assessing the water quality, we can identify any potential breeding grounds for Legionella bacteria. Inspection of water systems involves measuring water temperatures to ensure they remain within safe ranges that discourage bacterial growth. We’ll also check for signs of biofilm or stagnant water, addressing these issues promptly to prevent Legionella growth.

How often should temperatures be taken for Legionella control?

HSG274 Part 2 states temperatures should be taken every month. Site personnel can be trained to carry out these tasks alternatively Lubron engineers can cover if the resource is not available.

How cold should my cold tap be?

HSG274 Table 2.1 states temperatures at cold taps should be below 20°C after 2 minutes of running the tap.

Can anyone do the Legionella tasks?

Service providers should also ensure that their staff and contractors are
competent to carry out the task safely. They should be properly trained to a
standard appropriate to the various tasks they perform, such as risk assessment, advising on water treatment measures, sampling or cleaning and maintaining water systems. The Legionella Control Association administers a Code of Conduct for organisations providing services to occupiers/owners of water systems. This Code of Conduct does not have legal status but may give guidance to duty holders about the standards of service they should expect to receive from service providers who abide by the Code.

How hot should the taps be?

Hot taps should reach a minimum of 50°C (55°C in healthcare premises) within a minute of running

What is a TMV (Thermostatic Mixing Valve) and do i need one?

A TMV is a valve that prevents scaling by mixing hot and cold water, these are often over used and you should assess whether the TMV fitting is required, and if not, remove. Where needed, inspect, clean, descale and disinfect any strainers or filters associated with TMVs.

To maintain protection against scald risk, TMVs require regular routine
maintenance carried out by competent persons in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions. There is further information on our website here
