The Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CIPHE) has published the Safe Water Guide, a booklet that focuses on scald prevention and Legionella.
The guide is aimed at those responsible for the desig
n, installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance of buildings. Besides covering the conditions that harbour Legionella species, including renewable energy heated water systems, hot tubs and whirlpool baths, the booklet also covers design and good practice when it comes to preventing scalding.
The Safe Water Guide is available from the CIPHE at a cost of £15 (£10 for members). A downloadable version will be available soon.
