The water hygiene at DCC is of a good standard and we are keen to keep it that way, as
part of our water management as we are on an open system it is important that residents also understand the importance of carrying out simple water hygiene maintenance within their properties. Please see the steps below that you need to follow,
o Make Sure that all your taps and showers are used at least weekly. If any tap or shower is not used for a week or more (for instances when you are on holiday) then please run these gently for 3 or 4 minutes when you return. Also remember to clean your shower heads.
o Heated towel rails should be left permanently on with the valve fully open at all times, including the Summer. Although this may not be convenient on hot days, leaving the valve open means that hot water flows through the towel rail and prevents any growth of bacteria.
oThermostatic Mixing Valves (TMVs) typically found in modern shower
appliances should be serviced at least annually,
Finally we hope that you will enjoy living at Du Cane Court and please remember that all these arrangements have been made for the benefit of all residents and your cooperation is vital.
