We all want to live and work in a safe, clean environment, and many of us will take a number of precautions to ensure that we do!
However, too often, we forget about the harmful bacteria that can lurk in water systems within our home or workplace – whether that be radiators, swimming pools or even our shower heads.
At Envirochem, we recommend regularly testing water systems to ensure they are clean, safe and free from any nasty substances. That’s why we sell a range of self-test kits that allow you to check for the presence of harmful bacteria and chemicals.
Testing for Legionella
Legionella is the bacteria that causes Legionnaires disease, which is a form of pneumonia. It can be found in various water systems in your workplace and home – from spa pools and dishwashers to water coolers and humidifiers. Our self-test kits allow you quickly and easily to check for the presence of Legionella in water systems to ensure you, your family or your employees aren’t being exposed to it.
Domestic heating water systems
Have you noticed corrosion on your pipework or radiators? This is often caused by the pH of the water, the water’s chemical make up or even the presence of oxygen in the water. It’s important to identify the cause to ensure no harm is being done and avoid future corrosion. Our self-test kits can help you assess this!
It’s really easy for infectious agents to enter swimming pools and spas – and once they are in there, unfortunately the conditions are usually perfect for them to grow! Regularly testing the water – we recommend minimum once every month – can help avoid outbreaks of ear and eye infections, or gastro-enteritis, as well as helping to detect Legionella. You can purchase one of our kits here.
Our self-test kits allow you to take the safety of your home or workplace into your own hands – but if you prefer, our qualified team is always on hand for callouts. Get in touch via the contact form below.
