In many countries where water is being used for human consumption it is generally stored in a large water storage tank and distributed by a water storage system, and in order to comply with local governing laws and water regulations and to reduce the risk of contraction of the potentially fatal legionnaires disease, both the water storage tank and the water storage system must be cleaned and maintained on a regular basis in order to comply to these laws. Unfortunately local laws and regulations regarding water storage tank and water storage systems in Thailand do not comply to the same high standards as those adopted in Europe and therefore the risk of an outbreak of legionnaires disease is greatly increased. With the large amounts of foreign tourists visiting Thailand and Phuket and a significant rise in the numbers of outbreaks of legionnaires disease, foreign governments are placing pressure on the Thai Government to urgently improve the standard of their water storage tank and water storage system systems.
Outbreaks of Legionnaires disease caused by the low standards of service and maintenance to the water storage tank and water storage system also receive significant media attention and Hotels, Resorts and Guesthouses are being urged to improve the safety standards of their waters storage tank and water storage system to prevent alerts being on Phuket as a holiday destination. Legionnaires disease can be avoided by continued monitoring and cleaning of the water storage tank and water storage system.

Cleaning and chlorination of the water storage tank and water storage system is an integral part of good maintenance and helps in the prevention of legionnaires disease. In order to leave your water storage tank and water storage system clean and free from risk of contamination we must first drain the existing water from the water tank. Once the water storage tank has been completely drained we will clean the exterior of the water tank with a chlorine solution, and visually inspect the walls of the water storage tank.
