C & D and Remedial Plumbing

Cold Water Storage Tanks, Calorifiers and Showerheads.

Part of the control scheme will inevitably require that storage tanks are cleaned and disinfected to maintain hygienic water conditions when required by inspection.

L8 requires that the tanks be inspected at least annually and a judgement made on whether cleaning and disinfection is required.  All of our tank inspection reports are verified by photographic evidence supporting decisions on whether a Clean and Disinfection is required.
