At ICS, we offer a full range of validation services for new or existing air and water systems.
Post installation, a thorough, professional validation on a newly installed system by our inhouse experienced team can ensure that it is working well and to the design specification.
Our validation service follows a step-by-step plan to check all aspects of the system. This starts with a visual inspection and also includes physical testing of flow rates, pressures, equipment condition, functionality and more.
We also sample closed water systems for microbiological and chemistry levels, and domestic water systems for drinking water quality, Microbiology and legionella.
We produce detailed reports based on the data that we have collated allowing us to identify parts of the system that are not running as efficiently as they should. A well-balanced system will help reduce on-going costs but also increase the lifecycle of your system.

How often should I test water for Legionella?
It depends on the system that you have and the outcome of your risk assessment. For open systems, such as cooling towers, evaporative condensers and spa pools etc, routine testing should be carried out at least quarterly. However, there may be circumstances were more frequent sampling may be required.
For hot and cold water systems, which are generally enclosed, i.e. not open to the elements and significant contamination in the same way as cooling towers, microbiological monitoring is not usually required. But there may be circumstances where testing for legionella is necessary eg where there is doubt about the efficacy of the control regime or where recommended temperatures or disinfection concentrations are not being consistently achieved .
