Water Chlorination

In order to safeguard water quality and public health, it is required that private supply pipes are chlorinated and tested before a connection is allowed to the water mains. Pipework chlorination is essential to ensure suitability and safety for the provision of drinking water.

Whether a water system has just been installed or needs a repair, renewal or just refurbishing there will always be the possibility of contamination. Maintaining good standards of water hygiene and controlling levels of dangerous waterborne bacteria is an essential component in the successful management of any water system.

There are a number of reasons why chlorination is needed, below are the most common reasons for disinfections:

  • New water supply pipework to property
  • New installation to commercial water systems
  • System chlorination due to positive bacteria results
  • Water systems not been used for an extended period of time

Water Treatment Ireland Ltd offers pipework chlorination and disinfection services that are carried out to the highest possible standards. Our team of highly trained water treatment technicians are experts at performing disinfection of both new and existing water services installations.

Mains Water Chlorination

Water utility companies have their own strict requirements for disinfection work on public mains and will refuse to connect newly laid mains supply pipes into their network until disinfection has been carried out.

Water Treatment Ireland Ltd performs water main pipe chlorination and disinfection, working for a variety of clients which include local authorities, utility companies, consulting engineers & building contractors.

All out work is completed in strict accordance with Irish Water’s Code of Practice for Water Infrastructure. New supplies should be swabbed, flushed, filled with chlorinated water and allowed to stand for 24 hours, following which the chlorinated water should be flushed out, the pipe refilled, and a sample taken.

We do not use subcontractors and our get it right first-time attitude ensures that customers obtain a quick and hassle free connection.

Once all tests have been complete and the water is of a satisfactory level, the piping system can then be commissioned for use.

We can also provide with a chlorination certificate that can be produced and sent along with the analysis report to the local water authority connection team to proceed with their connection.


Cold Water Storage Tank Chlorination

Dirty and poorly maintained water systems, old pipework, and neglected water tanks can lead to a significant deterioration in water quality standards. Over time, cold water storage tanks may accumulate dirt, sediment and biofilms that affect the quality of the supply. 

Importantly, such conditions can also create ideal environments for the growth and proliferation of dangerous waterborne pathogens such as E.Coli and Legionella.

This can significantly increase risks to the health and safety of employees, customers and other people, but it can also have a legal impact on your business as you may be breaking the law, exposing you and your business to potential legal action or prosecution.

Whether small or large volume, existing plant or new installations, we are able to provide a service to improve the quality of stored water, and to assist in complete control of any issues such as legionella or potable water contamination.
