Water Heater / Hot Water Unit Responsibilities For ACoP L8 Compliance
Water heater / Hot Water Units have certain characteristics and features in common. This allows us to formulate a regular schedule of testing, checks and cleaning for them in order to keep them operating safely.
Below are our recommendations for scheduling water temperature monitoring, water sampling and actions to take, should legionella contamination or other elevated bacterial levels be found. These suggestions are based on the governments ACoP L8 documentation.
