Discuss Steam condensate and Legionella... in the Plumbing Forum area at PlumbersForums.net
I would advise you to have a sample of the water tested first. I don't know how much the online kits are but it would be worth it just to put your mind at rest until you decide on where to go with it next.Hi and thanks for your help... I've spent a very long time online because we had an assessment done by H2O who have done an assessment and in their report have said we should undertake a risk assessment for Legionella... Everything I've read seems to suggest there is very little risk from our pools or boiler or wall heater and we are a small charity not wishing to pay for an assessment- I've been contemplating the send away DIY kits but even they have a significant cost to our museum! Thanks again...and BTW..the pool is not our dirtiest... that has more oil and wax in it... we cant treat the water as eventually, it goes into the drain!
Hi Alan...I really dont think you have a problem but are being wound up by some water treatment outfit. However I really like steam engines of all sorts. I am a water engineer and have good knowledge in this area and what I do not know I can get validated...
Hi AlanThe Markfield Beam Engine and Museum... not sure if you've already seen this Chris...
Hi Rob... we are legally allowed to do our own risk assessment and therefore certification and we are always looking for the cheapest reliable option. Everything takes time to reach decisions as we run like a cooperative, and in our spare time, but I will pass your offer to the trustees... thanks again...I think you are wanting a certificated statement of safety regarding your installation.
I cannot provide that but I know who can, they assess schools public swimming pools and hotels etc...they are national uk ...if you wish I will have a word and see what they might do for you
