The Vital Role of Internal Pipework Chlorination

Internal pipework chlorination is a linchpin in guaranteeing the purity of water systems within buildings. By removing harmful bacteria and contaminants, this process ensures that the water flowing through internal plumbing remains not only safe but also fit for consumption. 

When executed by seasoned professionals like us at Pipe Testing Services (PTS), our service confirms that the chlorinated water is not just safe but optimal for drinking. We uphold rigorous standards, deploying approved chemicals and industry best practices.

Internal pipework chlorination is imperative in many scenarios, including new installations, modifications to existing systems, microbiological sampling results indicating high bacterial counts, suspected contamination, and extended periods of inactivity without routine flushing.

    Internal pipework chlorination is a complex process that requires specialised knowledge and equipment. To ensure proper disinfection and water safety, it is best to entrust this task to trained professionals like Pipe Testing Services.

    The frequency of internal pipework chlorination depends on various factors, including water usage, system size, and local regulations. Regular maintenance and periodic chlorination are vital for maintaining water quality.

    While chlorination remains the most effective method for water system disinfection, alternative technologies such as ultraviolet (UV) disinfection may be suitable for certain applications. Our experts can advise you on the best approach for your specific needs.
    Neglecting internal pipework chlorination can lead to the growth of harmful bacteria, posing serious health risks to occupants. Contaminated water may cause waterborne illnesses, making chlorination a vital preventive measure.
    The chemicals we use are carefully selected to be effective against harmful bacteria while being safe for the water system. Commonly used chemicals include chlorine-based compounds like sodium hypochlorite.
