How To Get Your Commercial Water System Ready For Spring

While there are many documented articles on how and why to maintain your commercial water system in the winter periods, some of you reading may be interested in how to clean your water system during spring. As such, this article is going to discuss the problems that occur for your water storage tanks during the spring period as well as what we can do to help rectify these problems.

How Does Hotter Temperature Affect Your Water Systems?:

Lowered temperatures during winter periods can have a significant impact on the performance of your commercial water systems such as: split valves, leaks or full on failures of the tank. However, people are often unaware of how the spring season and hotter climates can affect your water system. 

Thankfully, a little bit of planning is all you need to combat the potential increase in heat during the spring to maintain your water system. Firstly, it is important to note that certain types of bacteria thrive when the temperature is incredibly low or incredibly high. The optimal range for bacteria growth ranges from 40 degrees Fahrenheit (4.4°C) – 140 degrees Fahrenheit (60°C). This is often called the ‘Danger Zone’.

When applying this to a commercial water system, Legionella is a type of bacteria that grows in temperatures ranging between 20-45°C and is incredibly harmful to human health. People inhale this bacteria in small droplets of water in the air which is how they get infected with it. As such, it is vital to keep this under control. 

As spring is right round the corner, the natural forces of the earth heating up is a potential breeding ground for Legionella and is something definitely to be to be mindful of.
