Hospital Water Treatment Services
Hospitals and healthcare facilities come under the strictest of health and safety regulations for the sake of patient and staff health and protection. This requires a clean sterile environment, safe treated domestic water, clean water storage tanks, frequent water sampling and effective legionella control services. Feedwater provide an encompassing and effective hospital water treatment service.
Feedwater has for over 35 years provided a comprehensive range of products and services tailored to the needs of NHS hospitals and healthcare facilities. We’ve been assisting hospital estates, maintenance and facilities departments to ensure their patients health and safety is not compromised by poorly maintained domestic water systems by implementing an effective water hygiene programme as well as working to maximise their operating efficiency and profitability.
Legionnaires’ disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia caused by legionella bacteria which can thrive in the warm water conditions often found in hospital water systems. Not only can legionella put your patients and staff at risk but it can also damage the hospital image.
Feedwater offers a range of services designed to help the hospital maintenance team protect their patients and collogues against legionella and comply with legislation. These include:
- Water analysis and Legionella testing
- Water hygiene and disinfection services
- Legionella awareness training
- Legionella risk assessment services

- Record keeping log books and training
- Technical support and guidance
Activ-Ox® Chlorine Dioxide Water Disinfection
Complex water systems can present a real struggle to keep under control and free from troublesome bacteria, particularly legionella. Hospitals especially find this an issue having large water storage tanks and long complicated pipework. Traditional drinking disinfectants like chlorine are ineffective because they cannot penetrate the biofilms which form on the pipe surfaces. Activ-Ox® is the answer!
Activ-Ox is Feedwater’ patented chlorine dioxide system which is simple and safe to use and able to control all manner of problematic bacteria including legionella.
Many leading hotels, hospitals and care homes have installed Activ-Ox dosing systems on their incoming water supply as part of their legionella control strategy.
In addition to products to treat your drinking, hot and cold domestic water, we also supply special Activ-Ox products for disinfecting and cleaning shower fittings and for biofilm control in spas.
Closed System Services
Many hospitals will have closed systems as useful ways of heating or cooling for building service applications. These closed systems contain water which changes very little, bleed and evaporation tends to be minimal therefore the intention is that the water be retained for an indefinite period of time.
This water needs to be treated to prevent the build up of corrosion and foulant products, without treatment heat transfer can be impeded reducing efficiency of the systems, blockages can happen and control valves can become inoperable. Heating systems can become scaled up; chilled water systems can become choked with Pseudomonas slime-forming bacteria. A poorly treated closed circuit water system will be wasting your money long before it starts to leak.
Feedwater can provide you with an effective water treatment chemicals to inhibit such issues as corrosion, scale and microbial issues ensuring long life, efficiency and safety. Our products all come backed up by on site service visits with the benefit of expert advice and consulting.
