Water Chlorination Services

Private supply pipes are required to be chlorinated and tested before a connection is allowed to the water main to protect public health and we can provide this service.

When is chlorination treatment needed?

  • Prior to connection of new pipe work to the water mains
  • If there is any suspected contamination to the supply
  • If the pipe work or welfare units have not been used for an extended period of time
  • All new build properties
  • Installation or maintenance of sprinkler systems

The Chlorination Process

Each system will be flushed with clean potable water before being chlorinated to remove any cuttings or other dirt and debris.

After flushing, the system is filled to capacity with a solution containing free chlorine (minimum 50mg/l strength) which is left in the pipework for a minimum of 1 hour. Aquasource will then neutralise the chlorine solution and dispose of it safely. We will then flush the system through again with clean water to remove any traces of chlorine.

The system is then again filled with potable water and left to sit for a minimum of 1 hour. This water will then be sampled for chemical and microbiological analysis. The samples will be submitted to one of our laboratory partners to be analysed using UKAS Approved methods.

The results of the laboratory analysis will then be submitted in a report to the client along with a certificate of chlorination to enable the client to connect to the public water supply.

Requirements for chlorination and specific tests needed can vary depending on your utility company. You should always check with your utility provider what is required and the level of certification expected before the chlorination goes ahead.
