BS8558 Standards

It is a legal requirement that new private water supply pipes are commissioned before they are connected to mains water services. It is also necessary to have a chlorination certificate is issued. Water Hygiene Services Ltd can provide BS8558 mains disinfection services in addition to sampling of new and existing mains pipework. We undertake partial or complete building mains disinfection prior to connection and handover. Chlorination certificates are supplied once the work has been completed.

BS6700 standards were updated in 2015 to BS8558.

Water Hygiene Services always operate to the BS8558 standards. Please find below the relevant information for Water Hygiene Services chlorination procedures from the BS8558 standards. Click below to download the guide.
