Where water is grey and clean

11 April 2012

Swiftclean Environmental, specialist in kitchen extract and ductwork cleaning and legionella prevention services, has signed a partnership agreement with Aquaco Water Recycling which will broaden the offering of both companies to their respective clients.

Under the terms of the agreement, Aquaco will offer Swiftclean services to its existing customer base, whilst Swiftclean will offer Aquaco’s grey water recycling and rainwater harvesting services alongside its existing grey water and rainwater tank cleaning services and legionella prevention programmes.

“This is a very positive partnership,” explained Swiftclean’s Managing Director, Gary Nicholls. “This is two dynamic specialist companies coming together to ensure that a broader number of clients can now get access to the widest possible range of water hygiene services as well as professional ventilation system hygiene, ductwork cleaning/fire safety cleaning and refurbishment packages.”

Moreover, given the large number of hospitals with which Swiftclean works and the need to better conserve water stocks, our partnership will enable us to add value to those relationships by recommending a high quality provider of water conservation and recycling services.”

Elliott Webster, Managing Director, Aquaco Water Recycling, commented: “We had already been working with Swiftclean to clean the tanks in our systems and this partnership means we can now offer customers a full maintenance solution including the plumbing, electrics and tank cleaning under one roof. It also means Swiftclean will have an additional offering for their customers through Aquaco enhancing its existing range services.”

Aquaco offers a solution for the collection of rainwater from roofs, and water and grey water from baths, showers and hand basins to re-use for toilet flushing, irrigation and washing machine supply. Aquaco grey water recycling and harvesting systems reduce waste water usage by typically 50%, provide a payback of 3-5 years and are the most cost effective way to gain Breeam or Code for Sustainable Homes points.

The partnership should also help more companies comply with Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations, which demand that owners and operators of all commercial premises have a statutory duty to control the risk of legionella bacteria in water systems. Working together, Swiftclean and Aquaco will be able to help building owners identify and assess the sources of risk and implement a programme of activity for preventing or controlling any risk.
