Temperature Monitoring

Water temperature monitoring is the process of regularly measuring and recording the temperature of water in various locations, such as in hot water systems, cooling towers, and other equipment. It is an ongoing maintenance task that is important for a variety of reasons, including:

1. Ensuring the safety and quality of water: Temperature monitoring is critical for ensuring that the water in hot water systems and cooling towers is at safe temperatures to prevent scalding or Legionella growth.

2. Detecting and preventing equipment failure: Temperature monitoring can help to detect issues with equipment such as overheating, which can indicate a problem with the equipment and prevent costly repairs.

3. Compliance with legal regulations: Many countries, including the UK, have laws and regulations in place that require regular temperature monitoring to ensure compliance with safety standards and prevent the spread of waterborne illnesses such as Legionnaires’ disease.

Relevant British Standards: BS 8558:2015 – Legionella control. Code of practice HSG 274 Part 2 – Legionnaires’ disease: The control of legionella bacteria in water systems

Ongoing maintenance task of water temperature monitoring allows for early identification of issues and prevent them from escalating. It is an important step in maintaining a safe and healthy water supply and to minimize the risk of equipment failure. By regularly monitoring the temperature of your water systems, you can ensure that they are operating within safe and acceptable ranges and take appropriate action when necessary.

In addition to temperature monitoring, it is also important to regularly inspect, clean, and disinfect your hot water systems and cooling towers, as well as to test the water for Legionella bacteria. This will ensure that your water systems are safe and compliant with the regulations.
