Water hygiene is an essential part of water management. If compromised, either at source or within the system, users of the water are at risk of serious, potentially fatal, disease. Azure are experts in the management of water hygiene in order to enable confidence in the water within the system.

Cleaning and disinfection is an integral part of any water hygiene regime. Tanks, reservoirs and pipe lines must be regularly inspected, cleaned and disinfected as dirt will build up over time and will inevitably affect water quality. Any new pipe work connecting to an existing system must be fully cleaned and disinfected to ensure that no contamination is introduced into the existing system.

We can offer a complete service including:

  • Chlorination, testing and certification of mains pipe work including new lay mains
