Water Treatment

We are a fast growing British Water Treatment Company providing highly professional quality services in all aspects of Water Treatment.

Applications / What we do

  • Water Treatment & Consultancy Services
  • Cleaning & Disinfection to British Standards
  • Pre-commissioning Cleaning
  • Open Cooling Water Treatment and Monitoring
  • Closed Circuit heating systems treatment
  • Closed circuit cooling systems treatment
  • Steam Boilers Treatment and Monitoring

Cleaning & Disinfection

Aqua Technologies’s qualified and experienced engineers carry out cleaning and chemical disinfection of Hot & Cold Water Storage Tanks and associated pipe works. The process follows the methods recommended in HSE’s ACOP L8 and BS8558 and involves draining and cleaning the tank to remove sediments, scale, sludge and bio-film before refilling and chlorinating the water to the required level. The treated water is distributed throughout the system and allowed to stand for a period of time before the chemical is neutralized. The entire system is then thoroughly flushed before being re-commissioned. Aqua Technologies also uses latest technologies like Silver Peroxide and Chlorine Dioxide for disinfection.

Pre-commissioning Cleaning

New pipework often contains debris leftover from construction which can cause corrosion, damage and encourage microbiological growth which will in turn cause severe corrosion, blockage etc. Flushing, chemical cleaning and system stabilization is required for heating, chilled and condenser circuits also. This work will increase plant efficiency and minimize downtime caused by blocked filters, strainers and abrasion in pump seals etc. When existing systems are found to be fouled by corrosion, scale or debris resulting from a lack of incorrect treatment, Aqua Technologies offer an in-line cleaning programme using non toxic chemical cleaning technology in conjunction with the flushing and inhibiting procedures used in pre-commission cleaning.

Open Cooling Water Treatment and Monitoring

In order to meet the primary objective, colling water treatment technology is concerned with the five basic problem area, which are:

  • Scale Formation
  • Corrosion
  • General Fouling
  • Microbiological Fouling
  • Control of waterside conditions by the correct application of treatment and maintenance of necessary reserves.

We have a full range colling water treatment programme including monitoring and auditing.

Closed Circuit heating systems treatment

We carry out heating systems treatment for many commercial properties, hospitals, schools, and care homes across the country. This includes flushing, chemical cleaning, inhibitor dosing, water sampling and monitoring.

 

Closed Circuit cooling water treatment

With closed systems, there is normally minimal water loss and hence negligible concentration of the dissolved minerals. With these systems, the cooling of water occurs by means of heat ex-changers, refrigeration equipment or radiators. Closed systems are used typically in refrigeration chilled water or engine cooling systems. We have an effective treatment program for closed Systems.

 

Steam Boilers Treatment & Monitoring

The boiler system includes the feed lines, pumps, control gears, the boiler itself and the steam condensate systems.
We do a full range of boiler treatment for safe operation which includes:

  • Pre-treatment plant
  • Dosage and control equipment
  • Chemical treatments
  • On-site and laboratory analysis, reporting and guidance
  • Inspection and troubleshooting
  • Provide training to operators

Swimming Pool Treatment & Monitoring

We carry out treatment and monitoring for a number of swimming pools across UK. We use Chlorine, Chlorine dioxide and Silver peroxide for the disinfection of swimming pools. When we use chlorine as a disinfectant and an oxidizer at a pH value of 6.5 often, acid is added to lower the pH value. Chlorine kills pathogenic microorganisms that are present in the water. When too much chlorine is present, it can cause eye and mucous membrane irritation, as a result of chloramines formation. Lowering the chlorine concentration is undesirable, because this increases the water borne diseases. Regular monitoring and sampling is highly necessary for swimming pools. Aqua Technologies provide highly professional service as well as training to operators.

  • Legionella Control Association

    Legislative requirements for the control of legionellosis put the responsibility for compliance clearly with the owner/operator of water systems. Under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, and the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations as regards risks from legionellosis, all owner and operators of such systems have a responsibility to ensure that the risk is controlled and kept to an acceptable level. The HSE's Approved Code of Practice and Guidance (L8) stresses that whilst the tasks required to be undertaken to control the risk may be contracted to an external specialist, the owner/operator must take all reasonable care to ensure the competence of the service provider to carry out the work on his behalf

Legionella control

What is Legionnaires’ Disease?

Legionnaires’ disease is a type of pneumonia. The illness occurs more frequently in men than women. It usually affects middle-aged or elderly people and also affects smokers or people with other chest problems.

How do people get it?

The germ which causes legionnaires’ disease is a bacterium called Legionella pneumophila. People catch legionnaires disease by inhaling small droplets of water suspended in the air, which contain the Legionella bacterium.

Where does it come from?

As Legionella bacteria are commonly encountered in environmental sources they may eventually colonize manufactured water systems and be found in cooling tower water systems, hot and cold water systems and other plants which use or store water.

What measures are there to control legionnaires’ disease?

To prevent the occurrence of legionnaires’ disease, buildings which operate these systems must comply with regulations requiring them to manage, maintain and treat them properly. Amongst other things, this means that the water must be treated and the system must be monitored and cleaned regularly.

 

Legionella Risk Assessment & Consultancy Services to ACOP L8

 

The first requirement of HSE ACOP L8 is to carry out a suitable and sufficient Risk Assessment to identify all systems that could present a risk of exposure to Legionella bacteria.

 

These include:

  • Hot & Cold Water Services
  • Cooling Towers
  • Evaporative Condensers
  • Spa Pools
  • Any system where Legionella may grow and be released in an aerosol

 

Each system must have a separate Risk Assessment, which must be carried out by qualified ed and trained consultants who are competent to do so.

 

Risk = Hazard x Likelihood

 

The hazards associated with legionella bacteria can be fatal but the likelihood can be minimized by effective monitoring of control program and engineering solutions.
 

This includes:

  • Legionella Risk Assessments to ACOP L8
  • Tank Inspection and Water Sampling
  • Temperature Monitoring
  • Water & Air Quality Monitoring
  • Water Tank Replacement
