TMV servicing Durham
To comply with legionella prevention guidance; water must be stored at no less than 60 degrees and distributed at no less than 50 degrees, however where the risk of scalding has been identified thermostatic mixer valves (TMV’s) are fitted to regulate the temperature at the outlets.
It is a requirement that all TMV’s are checked once a year to ensure they are still achieving the desired temperature. If temperature control fluctuates more than 2 degrees from the original setting then a full service will be required. The valves can easily become scaled or blocked which needs to be rectified to ensure they work properly.
Integrated Compliance Services have the expertise to check mixer valves and carry out replacement or servicing.

What are RPZ valves?
Reduced pressure zone valves are fitted into potable water systems as a backflow preventer of the mains water supplies. Without RPZ valves, in the occurrence of a sudden lowering of pressure in the water system, the water could flow in the opposite direction, causing contaminated water to enter the supply. If a sudden drop in water pressure occurs; RPZ valves will dump the contaminated water and prevent it from entering into the water supply.

How do I carry out a Legionella risk assessment?
The purpose of carrying out a risk assessment is to identify and assess any risks in your water system. The responsible person should understand your water systems and any associated equipment, in order to conclude whether the system is likely to create a risk from exposure to legionella, and should be able to identify whether:
- water is stored or re-circulated as part of your system
- the water temperature in some or all parts of the system is between 20–45 °C
- there are sources of nutrients such as rust, sludge, scale and organic matters
- conditions are present to encourage bacteria to multiply
- it is possible for water droplets to be produced and, if so, whether they could be dispersed over a wide area, eg showers and aerosols from cooling towers
- it is likely that any of your employees, residents, visitors etc are more susceptible to infection due to age, illness, a weakened immune system etc and whether they could be exposed to any contaminated water droplets
Your risk assessment should include:
- management responsibilities, including the name of competent person and a description of your system;
- potential sources of risk;
- any controls in place to control risks;
- monitoring, inspection and maintenance procedures;
- records of the monitoring results, inspections and checks carried out;
- arrangements to review the risk assessment regularly
If you decide that the risks are insignificant, your assessment is complete. You may not need take any further action at this stage but you should review the assessment regularly in case anything changes in your system.find out more
