Recovering Drinking Water Supplies in Buildings and Networks After Prolonged Inactivity

In May 2020, Water UK published guidance to building owners, landlords and managers on recovering buildings and networks after prolonged inactivity during COVID-19 to avoid risks of adverse water quality and potential risks to health – including legionella bacteria.

The guidance includes the recommendation to "ensure that if plumbers are required to make any changes or repairs to the plumbing system that approved plumbers under the WaterSafe scheme are used".
