BS8558 Disinfection

Dantek Environmental Services are able to undertake all flushing and disinfection works specified for new build and pre-commission cleaning in line with British Standard 8558 (formerly 6700) and the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999.

Dantek offer BS8558 disinfection for new builds, underground mains and temporary supplies.

The BS8558 and Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 state:

"...after testing and flushing, systems should be disinfected in the following instances..."

  • New installations (except private dwellings occupied by a single family).
  • Major extensions or alterations (except private dwellings occupied by a single family).
  • Underground pipe work (except localised repairs or insertion of junctions).
  • Where it is suspected that contamination may have occurred e.g. fouling by sewage drainage, animals or physical entry by site personnel for interior inspection, painting or repairs. Where a system has not been in regular use and not regularly flushed.

For further guidance on any aspect of water system commissioning or to order your copy of the Water Regulations Guide, the essential handbook for understanding the new Water Supply and Water Fittings Regulations, please contact Martin.
