Water Softeners: Annual Maintenance and Disinfection of Base Exchange

Water softeners play a crucial role in maintaining the integrity of hot and cold-water systems, ensuring both efficiency and safety. The HSG 274 guidance document for the control of legionella bacteria emphasizes the significance of regular maintenance and disinfection of base exchange water softeners. In this blog, we delve into the importance of annual servicing, the comprehensive checks conducted, and how these actions contribute to efficient and reliable operation.

Water softener

Why Annual Maintenance Matters

The HSG 274 guidelines provide a robust framework for mitigating the risks linked to legionella bacteria. According to these guidelines, it is recommended that base exchange water softeners receive annual servicing and disinfection. This regular maintenance not only helps in preventing the spread of legionella but also prolongs the lifespan of the softener system, guaranteeing its ongoing effectiveness, all while reducing operational costs through optimal salt and water utilization.

The Annual Softener Service: A Detailed Overview

Many companies still rely on Chlorine, which can damage the resin, reduce its capacity, and ultimately shorten its lifespan. What sets Dantek apart from competitors is our commitment to a comprehensive review of the commissioning settings, cross-referencing them with first principle calculations for factors like salt usage and resin capacity. We also quantitatively measure water hardness, ensuring that each vessel produces water with a hardness level below 5ppm, a more stringent standard compared to others who typically test down to 10 or 20ppm

  • During the annual water softeners service, our specialized water softener team conducts a meticulous inspection and maintenance process, consisting of the following key steps:
  • Resin Bed Disinfection: We disinfect the resin beds in both columns using a resin-safe disinfectant, PAA5. This critical step ensures the elimination of harmful bacteria, enhancing the safety of your water supply.
  • Visual Inspection and Leak Check: Our technicians carefully examine the system for any visible leaks from the valve head and vessels. Identifying and addressing leaks promptly not only prevents water wastage but also helps avoid potential damage
  • Salt Levels and Condition: We check the salt levels and condition to ensure proper regeneration and optimal softening efficiency.
  • Operational Function Tests: Various operational functions, including the backwash function, injector clearance, brine draw, rapid rinse cycle, and brine valve operation, undergo rigorous testing to ensure smooth operation.
  • Brine System Inspection: As part of our Dantek water softener Service, we remove, clean, and inspect components like the brine assembly, venturi valve, brine line flow control, and brine tank foot valve. This thorough inspection is vital to ensure that the softener functions correctly until the next annual service.
  • Water Softness Confirmation: We assess water hardness to verify the softener’s effectiveness in providing consistently softened water.
  • Electrical Control Systems: We review the operation of electrical control systems to ensure seamless automation and control.
  • Control Settings and Fault Identification: Control settings are meticulously recorded and adjusted if necessary. Any system faults are identified and reported to the customer, along with estimated costs for any required repairs.

At Dantek, our annual softener service goes beyond routine maintenance, providing you with the assurance that your water softening system will operate efficiently, reliably, and cost-effectively, while safeguarding the quality and safety of your water supply.

Complete Assurance and Report

During the Water softener service visit, our highly skilled technicians diligently record all relevant data and promptly report any instances of non-compliance. This meticulous documentation guarantees that your water softener system operates at peak efficiency, remains cost-effective, and prioritizes safety and reliability.

The Importance of Building System Cleaning and Disinfection – Hospitality

Tank cleaning and disinfection: Legionnaires’ disease, a potentially fatal form of pneumonia caused by Legionella bacteria, first gained notoriety in 1976 following an American Legion Conference in Philadelphia. Since then, it has remained a significant public health concern, particularly in buildings with intricate water systems. Legionella bacteria thrive in water sources, especially when conditions allow for their growth and dissemination. While Legionnaires’ disease cannot be transmitted from person to person, it poses a serious threat, especially to high-risk groups such as males over 45 years old, heavy smokers, alcoholics, and individuals with weakened immune systems or underlying health conditions like kidney disease or cancer.

Statistics suggest that Legionnaires’ disease affects thousands annually, with a significant portion linked to contaminated building water systems. Understanding the causation chain is crucial: Legionella must infiltrate a water system, proliferate under favourable conditions, disseminate in aerosol form, and ultimately be inhaled by susceptible individuals. Factors such as nutrient availability, temperature, and time play critical roles in facilitating Legionella growth and dissemination.

To mitigate the risk, effective cleaning and disinfection of hot and cold water systems are paramount. The Health and Safety Executive (HSG 274 p42) recommends controlling Legionella growth by keeping water systems clean and free from contaminants and corrosion, which can serve as nutrient sources for bacteria. Routine inspections and cleaning of water tanks become imperative, especially upon detecting debris or contamination, to ensure the health and safety of building occupants.

Different water systems require different approaches. Gravity tank-fed systems, frequent in commercial properties, often employ Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) tanks. These tanks, while durable, may deteriorate over time, manifesting issues like stress cracking or rusty bolts. Thorough inspection and maintenance protocols become essential in preserving the integrity of these systems.

Cleaning and disinfection methods vary, with chemical disinfection being a primary recommendation. Pre-disinfection may be warranted in certain scenarios, such as the presence of contaminants like dead organisms or pigeon excrement in the tank. Ensuring the thorough distribution of disinfectant to all outlets within the system, including showers and taps, is paramount to achieve comprehensive disinfection and mitigate risks effectively.

Understanding when to clean and disinfect tanks is equally crucial. Regular monitoring and risk assessments should prompt cleaning if the tank contains debris, sludge, scale, or traces of vermin. Tanks storing drinking water should undergo annual cleaning, and any alterations to the tank or pipework systems should prompt thorough disinfection to prevent contamination. Refer to page 26 of the HSG274 for easy to follow guidance https://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/priced/hsg274part2.pdf

Understanding the Varieties Found Within Buildings

Within the intricate framework of building infrastructure, water systems play a pivotal role in ensuring the smooth functioning of various operations. Understanding the diverse types of water systems found within buildings is crucial for effective maintenance and management.

Systems Fed Directly from the Mains:

These systems draw water directly from the public water supply, providing a convenient and reliable source of water for building occupants.

Gravity Tank-Fed Systems:

Gravity tank-fed systems involve tanks positioned above the outlets, typically located in attic spaces or dedicated tank rooms on the roof. In tall buildings or areas with insufficient mains pressure, gravity tanks ensure a steady flow of water by utilizing gravity to create pressure. Boosted water systems, which employ pumps to strengthen water pressure, are a common feature in gravity tank-fed setups.

GRP Tanks – Glass Reinforced Plastic:

Among the most frequent types of tanks found in commercial properties, GRP tanks boast durability and versatility.

Despite their durability, sectional GRP tanks may develop leaks after being drained and refilled. This occurs due to the water pressure inside the tank, which pushes the seals together. Leaks typically manifest at the mating face between the walls and base panels, requiring prompt attention to prevent water wastage and potential damage.

Managing Tank Deterioration:

Stress Cracking:

An increasing issue observed in Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) tanks is stress cracking. These cracks typically manifest internally on the lip of panels and signal the end of the tank’s life cycle. Stress cracking compromises the structural integrity of the tank, leading to potential leaks upon refilling. While tank lining may temporarily address small leaks, the ultimate solution lies in tank replacement to prevent further damage and ensure long-term reliability.

Rusty Bolts:

Rusty bolts within GRP tanks often indicate underlying issues stemming from incorrect installation practices or exposure to disinfectants like chlorine. Incorrect bolt usage, where galvanized bolts intended for dry external flanges are mistakenly used for wetted surfaces, can accelerate rust formation. Additionally, chlorine exposure during disinfection processes can rapidly corrode stainless steel bolts. Thorough rinsing of surfaces above the water line post-disinfection is crucial to mitigate corrosion risks.

Capacity and Design:

Understanding the capacity and design of tanks is fundamental for maintenance personnel. Generic terms like “50-gallon tanks” denote common domestic plastic tanks, which come in various designs, some easier to clean than others. Poorly fitting lids and insulation can exacerbate issues like airlocks, affecting the tank’s functionality. Ensuring accurate measurement of tank capacity and awareness of design nuances are crucial for effective maintenance planning and execution.

Flushing of Infrequently Used Outlets

Flushing of Infrequently Used Outlets: Understanding the importance of regularly flushing infrequently used outlets to maintain water quality and minimize Legionella growth.

Welcome to our blog dedicated to responsible persons in the sports industry who are entrusted with ensuring the safety and well-being of visitors and staff within sports facilities. In this blog, we will shed light on a crucial aspect of facility management regarding Legionella control. Specifically, we will emphasize the importance of regularly flushing infrequently used outlets to maintain water quality and minimize the risk of Legionella growth.

Let’s explore this essential practice and its significance in safeguarding the health of all individuals who utilize sports facilities.

 

Understanding Legionella and Its Risks: Protecting Water Safety in Sports Facilities

  • Legionella bacteria can pose a significant health risk when present in water sources, including the plumbing systems of sports facilities. These bacteria thrive in warm water environments and can lead to Legionnaires’ disease, a severe form of pneumonia. As responsible persons and staff members in the sports industry, it is crucial to prioritize Legionella control to prevent outbreaks and protect the health and safety of everyone using sports facilities.

The Role of Flushing Infrequently Used Outlets:

  • One key aspect of Legionella control is understanding the importance of regularly flushing infrequently used outlet. These outlets, such as showers, irrigation systems during low usage, drench shower, and eye wash stations, often experience stagnant water conditions that create a favorable environment for bacterial growth. Flushing these outlets involves running water through them for several minutes to remove stagnant water, sediment, and any potential Legionella bacteria that may have accumulated. An infrequently used outlet is a outlet that is not used for a period equal to or greater than seven days. If legionella is suspected an increase of flushing will be required.

Why Regular Flushing Matters:

  • Maintaining water quality and minimizing Legionella growth are two critical reasons why regular flushing of infrequently used outlets is essential in sports facilities.
  • Water Quality Maintenance: Flushing infrequently used outlets helps maintain the overall water quality within the facility. By removing accumulated sediment, biofilm, and other contaminants, you ensure a fresh supply of water with optimal quality for visitors and staff.
  • Minimizing Legionella Risk: Stagnant water provides an ideal breeding ground for Legionella bacteria. Regularly flushing infrequently used outlets disrupts these conditions and significantly reduces the risk of Legionella colonization in the facility’s plumbing system.

Effective Flushing Protocol:

  • To ensure an effective Legionella control strategy, it is crucial to conduct a legionella risk assessment to identify infrequently used outlets within your sports facility. However, it’s important to recognize that footfall patterns can change over time. Therefore, regular internal surveys should be conducted to identify outlets that are used less frequently, such as restrooms, locker rooms, and areas with lower foot traffic. By prioritizing these outlets during the flushing process and updating your flushing records accordingly, you can effectively target areas that are more susceptible to Legionella growth.

Establishing a Flushing Schedule:

  • Creating a regular flushing schedule for all identified outlets is a crucial step. Refer to HSG24 Part 2 guidelines (link to downloadable pdf at the end of this blog) and consider factors such as facility usage, occupancy rates, and water temperature when determining the frequency of flushing. Document the schedule and communicate it to the staff members responsible for flushing. Regularly review and update the schedule to accommodate any changes in facility usage.

Ensuring Adequate Flushing Duration:

  • During the flushing process, it is essential to run water through the infrequently used outlets for an adequate duration. Weekly flushing for several minutes per outlet should generally suffice. This duration allows for the removal of stagnant water and any potential Legionella bacteria. Ensure that staff members responsible for flushing are aware of the proper duration and follow it consistently.
  • Ensure that the running of water from outlets does not create an unnecessary amount of aerosol. If legionella is suspected or present submerse showers into a bucket of water or conceal them in a bag (Snipping the corner the allow water flow). If you require any advice regarding flushing infrequently used outlets with suspected or present legionella, please do not hesitate to contact our team at Dantek 01454 417 920

Monitoring and Documentation:

  • Maintain detailed records of all flushing activities, including the dates, outlets flushed, and the duration of flushing. Regularly review and monitor these records to ensure compliance with the established protocol and track the effectiveness of your Legionella control measures. By documenting any changes or additions to infrequently used outlets and updating the flushing records accordingly, you can keep your Legionella control measures up to date and in line with the current usage patterns of your sports facility.

In these situations, Chlorine dioxide is a highly effective means of control that can be used to make water systems safe to use once again.

The Importance of Chlorine Dioxide Dosage:

Chlorine dioxide dosage has proven to be an extremely effective tool in combating Legionella growth and ensuring water system safety. It eliminates Legionella bacteria, prevents their multiplication, and minimizes the risk of Legionnaires’ disease transmission. In cases where temperature control is challenging or not an option, chlorine dioxide dosage provides a practical and effective solution. In addition to its bactericidal properties it also possesses the capability to remove biofilm. Biofilm is a slimy layer formed by microorganisms that can attach to the inner surfaces of pipes, tanks, and other components within water systems. It provides a protective environment for Legionella bacteria to thrive and multiply, making biofilm control crucial in Legionella management.

Important Considerations for Legionella Control:

Before installing a unit, it is crucial to conduct a comprehensive review of the water risk assessment and the existing control regime. This review helps identify potential areas of concern and determines the appropriate dosage requirements for effective Legionella control. In cases where control is lost, certain initial steps should be taken, such as reviewing the number and locations of samples taken and assessing the percentage of failures in the sampling process. It is particularly important to focus on water systems where the treatment regime, including factors like temperature and disinfectant concentrations, is not consistently achieving the desired control levels. Alongside the thorough review of the system and treatment regimes, frequent testing should be carried out, ideally on a weekly basis, to provide early warning signs of control loss. Once the system is successfully brought back under control, as evidenced by monitoring results, it is advisable to reassess the frequency of testing.

Implementing Regular Legionella Testing:

While chlorine dioxide dosage is an effective control measure, it should be complemented with regular legionella testing. Legionella testing serves as an interim safety check until a viable control solution, such as chlorine dioxide dosage, is fully implemented. Regular testing helps monitor the effectiveness of the control measures and ensures the ongoing safety of the water system.
