Title: Unvented hot water storage systems: microbial growth in expansion vessels

Ref Code: IP1/97

Abstract1: The design of a hot water supply system is an important aspect in reducing the risk of bacterial growth. Poor design and maintenance of water services can lead to conditions where bacteria, such as legionella, can multiply and subsequently become aerosolised leading to an increased health risk for the users of a building. This paper gives advice on design, and lists available guidance documents.
