Swimming pool and spa testing
These days any public facility such as swimming pools, health spa’s etc are strictly governed by…what that means is…it is essential to carry out preventative measures such as…if a swimming pool does become infected…our testing fully complies with…we take the business of testing these facilities extremely seriously as the cost for not complying is not worth thinking about in terms of both the economic cost and the cost to…

Drinking water systems
Boreholes projects undertaken from initial surveys and Environmental Agency submissions through to well head pump testing, water analysis ,completion and installation of water treatment plant.
Pumping and control equipment can be supplied and fitted usually with a UV system to offer protection from micro biological activity from the borehole water.
Servicing is usually required once or twice a year. Hydraguard engineers can provide complete solutions and peace of mind to your business.
We supply, install and are authorised testers of Reduced Pressure Zone valves. RPZ valves are used for high risk level 4 applications and working in a similar way to a double check valve. However they have the added protection that if a fault occurred with the first or second check valve, a relief port will open and release the water from the reduced pressure zone. This protects the incoming mains water from the undertaker from contamination. This means that the RPZ can be used for category 4 risk applications. As these valves are used for high risk applications they must be installed and serviced on an annual basis in accordance with national water regulations by a qualified engineer. If you are thinking of installing one of these valves you must inform the water supplier.
At Hydraguard we can assist you with your responsibilities and avoid prosecution. One of the main breeding grounds for legionella is cooling towers and evaporative condensers.
Fortunately cooling towers and evaporative condensers are only dangerous breeding grounds for legionella when they are not managed correctly. There should be weekly monitoring by you own staff and disinfections carried out by trained water treatment engineers on a quarterly basis. A well maintained cooling tower has never been a risk to employees and the public. Only when not managed correctly can they become a health hazard.
As well as the disinfections to the cooling towers we can also provide:
Hot and cold water systems
There are various systems available to supply hot and cold water services that range in size, scale and complexity. All can present foreseeable risk of exposure to legionella.
Hydraguard will assist with assessing the risks associated with these systems. Simplified examples of different basic systems are:
Spa pools are known by a variety of names including hot tubs, whirlpool spa and whirlpools. They are recognised source of Legionnaires' disease and are subject to health and safety laws requiring managers, designers, manufacturers and installers to ensure spa pools remain safe.
Hydraguard can help you ensure that your spa pools are free from legionella bacteria and the associated risks.
