New water pipe disinfection is the process of treating new water pipes and plumbing systems with a disinfectant solution to kill or inactivate microorganisms that may be present. This is an important step in ensuring that the water supply is safe for human consumption and free from harmful contaminants.

The disinfection process typically involves flushing the new pipes with a solution of chlorine or other approved disinfectant, then allowing the solution to sit in the pipes for a period of time to ensure that all microorganisms are killed or inactivated. The process is then repeated with clean water to flush out any remaining disinfectant.

Relevant British Standards:

BS EN 806-3:2006 – Requirements for installations inside buildings conveying water for human consumption

BS 8558:2015 – Guide to the design, installation, testing and maintenance of services supplying water for domestic use within buildings and their curtilages – complementary guidance to BS EN 806.

The benefits of new water pipe disinfection include:

1. Ensuring the safety and quality of drinking water: By eliminating microorganisms that may be present in new pipes, disinfection helps to ensure that the water supply is safe for human consumption.

2. Meeting legal requirements: Many countries have laws and regulations in place that require new water pipes to be disinfected before they are put into service.

3. Minimizing the risk of waterborne illness: By eliminating microorganisms that can cause illness, disinfection helps to minimize the risk of waterborne illness.
