Water Heaters

The safe operation of water heaters and their associated distribution systems is crucial to successful legionella control. High legionella sample results are almost always associated with hot water services.

Temperature control is a key factor as is the condition of the supply cistern and the integral water tanks in combination water heaters.

Certain types of water heaters including point of use, multi-point and combination boilers only require occasional temperature adjustment.

Watertec recommends and undertakes annual inspections of:

  • vented direct and indirect cylinders
  • unvented direct and indirect cylinders
  • combination cylinders and water heaters
  • any re-circulating hot water system or system incorporating shunt pumps
