Water Safety

Legionella bacteria is a common form of bacteria found in water systems. You can take steps to reduce the risk of bacteria multiplying.

The symptoms of Legionnaires’ disease can be similar to flu and may include a high temperature, mild headaches, muscle pain, chills, tiredness and changes to your mental state.

To reduce and manage the risk of exposure to Legionella, we complete water safety risk assessments for all communal stored water tanks, and a sample of stored water in individual dwellings. We also service and maintain our water systems regularly to ensure they are safe for you to use.

Things you can do:

  • regularly clean and disinfect showerheads
  • inform us if your hot water is not working properly
  • run water outlets that are rarely used for a couple of minutes every two weeks
  • allow access to your home for a water safety risk assessment.

Please contact us if you would like us to carry out a water safety check on your home, or would like more information.
