Pipeline Chlorination / Pipeline Disinfection
Biofilm is a layer of microorganisms attached to the inner wall of the water distribution frame, which multiplies rapidly. Therefore, the water system frame must be kept clean to reduce the growth of bacteria. Regular observation becomes necessary to avoid the formation of debris, dirt or other organic matter in the pipeline.
According to the guidelines of the Dubai Municipality, in order to minimize Legionella contamination, all water systems should be treated with chlorine so that the residual free chlorine is at least 1-2 mg/L.
After the last chlorine flush, the water tank will be filled with new consumption water and pass through all pipes. According to the DM guidelines for controlling the growth of Legionella, water samples will be tested by a third-party laboratory (DM approved) from multiple locations, including TBC and Legionella laboratory testing.
