Customer taps and their influence on water quality

Price: £450  

Water companies suspect that microbiological and metal water quality failures are increasingly attributable to the changing design and functionality of kitchen taps and their ancillary fittings. The past 10 year’s annual reports from the UK regulators, published literature and unpublished data from water companies on taps and their effects on water quality were reviewed. Links between tap design and water quality failures were established and a tap classification developed to enable water companies to better capture data whilst conducting sampling. The report sets out guidance on a range of measures to reduce the risk of contamination of drinking water and water sample failures from kitchen taps. Some are within the control of water companies and some require collaboration with other stakeholders.
