SMS Engineers  water treatment consultation and chemical dosing

Applying water treatment processes to systems can be extremely beneficial, reducing equipment down time and repair.

Water Treatment Services

Most workplace and public buildings will have an associated water system and, whilst the potential for the growth of legionella bacteria is one of the main reasons why you may carry out some form of water treatment, there are many other benefits and reasons for doing so. Applying water treatment processes to systems can be extremely beneficial - saving time and money associated with equipment down time and repair.


Effective disinfection of water systems through chlorination.

Water systems require regular disinfection to eliminate potential health-threatening pathogenic organisms from both the water and associated pipework in order to prevent potential health risks to the water user.

We are fortunate enough to have an excellent mains water distribution system in the UK, but this can rapidly become contaminated if the domestic down services and cold-water storage tanks are poorly maintained. Chlorination is the addition of chlorine to the water supply at a predetermined strength to achieve effective disinfection.

SMS Environmental has the expertise to provide the best advice through our UKAS-accredited risk assessors and technical experts, as well as the ability to carry out the full spectrum of cleaning and disinfection works including chlorinating mains water, chlorinating down services and water tank chlorination in order to maintain high standards of water quality and hygiene.

Having achieved the training to meet all the British Standards, compliance with ACoP and HSE guidance, including WaterSafe accreditation, our teams will expertly undertake chlorination of the water services using customised dosing systems and processes.

We are experienced in the following:

  • BS 8558:2015, PD 855468:2015 Standards
  • Building chlorination
  • Chlorination certification
  • Chlorination drinking water
  • Chlorination processes
  • Chlorination training
