Legionella control

Legionnaires’ disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia caused by the legionella bacteria which can thrive in warm water conditions regularly found in hotel water systems. Not only can legionella put your guests at risk but it can also damage your reputation.

Feedwater offers a range of services designed to help the hotel maintenance team protect their guests against Legionella and comply with legislation including:

  • Legionella risk assessment services
  • Water analysis and Legionella testing
  • Water hygiene and disinfection services
  • Legionella training
  • Activ-Ox® chlorine dioxide
  • Record keeping log books and training
  • Technical support and guidance

Many international hotel groups now have a legionella control policy. If you don’t have one then we would be happy to provide you with a model one that you can adapt for your hotel.

Keeping on top of legionella control in hotels also means testing for the bacteria, Feedwater offers a quick and simple solution for sampling and testing for legionella with kits available on our webshop providing a packaged solution that also includes analysis performed by our onsite UKAS accredited laboratory. If you need a professional to perform sampling for you contact us today.

Activ-Ox® Chlorine Dioxide Water Disinfection

It can be a real struggle to keep the complex water systems in a large hotel free from troublesome bacteria, particularly legionella. 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 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 and pools.

Hotel Water Softeners

Hard water can be a real problem in the hotel and the hospitality industry. Not only does it detract from your guests’ sense of luxury but greatly increases your operating costs.  Your housekeeping team have to work much harder removing stains and soap scums from bathroom fittings, hotel laundry costs are much higher and kitchen equipment and water heaters become choked with limescale, shortening their life and increasing your energy costs. Guests expect spotless glass and cutlery which minerals can spoil.

A Feedwater water softener is the answer, removing the hardness salts from your water supply using a simple, safe, reliable process. We custom build each softener to match your requirements and our responsive team of service engineers provide on-site maintenance to ensure each unit provides years of cost-effective and reliable performance.

What causes Hardness?

Hardness in water is caused by naturally occurring salts of calcium and magnesium which are found to varying degrees in all water sources. The higher the concentration of these salts, the “harder” the water is.

Hard water gets its name from the fact that these calcium and magnesium salts react with soap and detergent forming an insoluble scum and making it “hard” to make a lather. Hard water not only makes washing with soap and detergent more difficult and costly – but it also forms limescale, a rock-like deposit when the water is heated. This limescale reduces heat transfer and makes heat exchange equipment more costly to operate, and in extreme cases such as a steam boiler can lead to catastrophic failure.

Boiler & Heating System Services

Boiler efficiency is important to ensure minimal costs and smooth operation, hotel boiler water treatment starts with a softener but the boiler itself should be looked after by frequent service visits and a range of treatment chemicals which maximise protection and efficiency bringing with them operational savings and most importantly safety.

Legionella testing is important for hotels as guests at higher risk of infection will make up a sizable proportion of total visitors. If a Legionella positive is identified rooms will need to be taken out of use until remedial action can be proven to have worked. With the standard culture test taking 10 or more days before results, this can lead to a loss of earnings as the room cannot be used in all that time. To assist customers where quick results are needed we have invested in a new qPCR method of Legionella analysis, by counting Legionella DNA we can theoretically get results back the same day the sample comes in.

Showerhead clean and disinfection is another important aspect of Legionella control as scaled up showerheads are ideal locations of Legionella and biofilm to grow. Our innovative Showersperse product is now available to order online and incorporates a dispersant and acid descaler in one to effectively remove scale and biofilm without harsh chemicals.
