Why You Need a Water Risk Assessment for Your Company

Posted on Jan 23, 2015

A water risk assessment performed by Howlett Associates Water Treatment, Ltd. is designed to test your water and water systems to ensure there are no harmful bacteria present or risk factors that may cause Legionnaires disease and other health problems. We perform this task for two reasons; to protect your building and its inhabitants from harmful disease, and to ensure your business’ compliance with water hygiene regulations.

Our company provides outstanding service for all of your water hygiene needs. We can perform the risk assessment by sampling your water supply and testing for risk factors. We also sanitise your water system by using dispersants, specialist inhibitors, and biocides. In addition to these services, we may make weekly visits to monitor the temperature of the water in your system. Keeping it at an appropriate level may help inhibit bacterial growth.

How Your Water Can Harm You

One of the biggest goals of having a water risk assessment performed is to ensure the safety of your building and its inhabitants from Legionnaires disease. Legionnaire’s disease is a bacterial form of pneumonia that is spread through air and water particles. There are also other risks associated with water, most often bacterial related disease.

The water systems that are most likely to encourage bacterial growth include spray taps, Jacuzzis, water heaters, and more. Any water system that is between 20C and -45C is at risk for Legionnaires disease and other bacterial growth.


Having water risk assessment performed may be a required compliance issue. Whether you are a homeowner that rents out your property, the landlord of an apartment building, or the owner of an office or other work building, compliance with water hygiene is essential. The goal of requiring compliance is to ensure the safety of your building and its inhabitants.
