Pipe Chlorination for Watermain Connection

Following the installation of a new water main or where a water supply piping system is broken or damaged and is repaired, a pipe chlorination is required. This should be completed to meet the requirements of the Irish Water Code of Practice for Water Infrastructure Connections and Developer Services. Where the chlorination procedure is completed by the developer Fitz Scientific can offer a microbiological sampling service. Our technician can visit the site once the watermain has been flushed and refilled to take a bacteriological sample for analysis.

Accredited Water Testing

The required microbiological testing is accredited by INAB to ISO 17025 standard and takes place at our laboratory in Drogheda. We issue a validated certificate of analysis and report on the chlorination procedure which may be submitted to the local authority. Tests include:

  • Escherichia coli (E. Coli)
  • Coliforms
  • Clostridium Perfringens 
  • Enterococci
  • Total Residual Chlorine
  • Free Residual Chlorine

Subject to satisfactory results the piping system is then deemed to be suitable for the supply of drinking water. The piping system can then be commissioned for use.
