Chilled & LTHW Checks

"Pseudomona bacteria is now being found in heating and chilled water systems in many parts of the country. Until the last couple of years, bacteria in these types of systems were of little consequence and not often investigated.

This bacteria produces biofilm, or slime. If left to proliferate it can cause severe corrosion and blockages in pipework. The biofilm will reduce the water flow and provide a habitat for other bacteria that cause corrosion leading to pitting and leaking pipework. The overall effect in heating and chilled water systems is reduced efficiency and increased downtime and costs of repairing leaks.

This is why closed systems should be monitored and regularly maintained. This maintenance should continue throughout the life of the building and should involve sample taking at a maximum interval of 3 months.
