Water disinfection experts for building services and Legionella control.
As a facilities manager, you have a demanding set of responsibilities and limited time. The buildings for which you are responsible undoubtedly contain toilet facilities. You could also be supplying drinking water, as well as water for use in baths, showers, hot tubs and swimming pools.
Prodose can help you establish a water system that makes it easy to automatically maintain disinfection levels and control legionella, all designed specifically for the exact requirements within your facility.
A key element in the systems we install is remote real time monitoring. This enables you to view the levels of disinfectant in the water in each part of the building and have full traceability. You will be able to respond to changes in disinfectant level and produce historic records to prove that levels have been maintained on a 24/7 basis.
The thing that makes Prodose special is the fact that we are much more than suppliers of equipment. For a start, we are not tied into any contracts with manufacturers, so we can offer impartial advice. The reason our advice is so valuable is that our engineers have microbiological knowledge and backgrounds in water treatment. This level of understanding means we can find the best solution for your situation and be sure it will work in the longer term.
The Prodose approach is to specify systems from the customer’s viewpoint. In other words, instead of trying to get you to change things to fit in with the type of system we want to sell, we take the time to understand and appreciate how you work and why it is important. This means we only suggest changes when they are genuine improvements you can work with, and we design systems to fit your preferred way of doing things.
Our approach is collaborative, and we aim to take everything into account. For example, buildings often require maintaining the outlet temperature of hot water supplies at 50°C. In some establishments, pipework dead-ends and unused areas of the building can create areas of contamination. These bacterial hotspots can re-infect the entire system, causing it to fail legionella tests. We can make sure that doesn’t happen.
Prodose can also help you with compliance, ensuring you are following all necessary regulations as well as best practice requirements such as Approved Code of Practice L8 for control of legionella bacteria in water systems.
Our existing clients include, schools, hospitals, universities and businesses that run office buildings and stadiums. This wide-ranging experience will help us when it comes to your project.
Everything we do is aimed at making your system more reliable, cost-effective and efficient. You also get the benefit of ongoing support from our experts, which means you can be sure of maintaining standards and avoiding future problems.
Is it time you made an overall assessment of the water treatment and distribution system within your building? When it comes to building services water issues, Prodose is the only partner you need.

Electrochlorination is the process of using salt, water and electricity to produce a low pH Sodium Hypochlorite solution directly on site. It is highly efficient because the system can respond to the levels of free chlorine in the water and apply dosing only when required.
Our range of AMPRO electrochlorinators are ideal for many of these applications and come with a full after sales support package. These machines are ideal for small footprint systems and have features such as integral hydrogen degassing, making them safer for installation by third parties.
Our advice is impartial, and we won’t advise a course of action or recommend a piece of equipment unless we know it offers a genuine benefit to your process.
Chlorine dioxide is, quite simply, a more powerful oxidising agent than chlorine in every way. It works better as a disinfectant and has the advantage of also breaking down odours.
If you think a Chlorine Dioxide generator might be the best way to go, it is worth getting the benefit of our advice first. We are not on commission and have no interest in selling devices unless they are the most appropriate and effective option for your particular process.
Instrumentation and controllers are fundamental to our ability to control water treatment processes. It is through the use of reliable and accurate instrumentation that monitors key parameters within the water that we are able to provide information back to the controllers that in turn govern the process.
With a range of single parameter and multi-parameter controllers Prodose are able to supply instrumentation and control systems to meet the most difficult of disinfection control applications.
