I am responsible for the day to day management of water services risk assessments and remedial works in Hampshire County Council premises and I have worked with Freeston Ltd for approximately 2 years.

I have found them to be very professional and reliable and the most proactive of the various legionella companies that I have had dealings with since becoming responsible for the risk management of water services.

Freeston Water Treatment provides water hygiene management in accordance with ACoP L8 across the 70+ care homes and other buildings for the Trust. This includes:
  • Production of risk assessments,
  • Monitoring of control measures, both for temperature regimes and chemical dosing regimes,
  • Annual maintenance tasks, such as tank and calorifier cleaning and disinfections, and
  • Recommendation and implementation of remedial actions if required, which may include sampling for legionella or emergency cleaning and disinfection of the systems.

Freeston also carry out routine maintenance of chlorine dioxide equipment and water softeners.  In our experience Freeston have performed well on the contract and we have found it easy to establish and maintain a good working relationship with them.

Freeston Water Treatment have been our School Consultants on the control of Legionella since 2010. We are a private School catering for both Boys and Girls which are mainly residential but with a proportion of Day Students. Our Campus is approximately 450 Acres and includes not only the 36 usual School buildings and Departments and 29 domestic staff houses but also it has its own Monastery, Church, and Farm. Freeston look after and advise us on all our School buildings and undertake the annual cleaning and Chlorination’s and water sampling to all our cold water storage tanks. Freeston also carry out any associated plumbing works that may be required to keep our water systems in line with the current water regulations and recommendation’s.

All the Freeston staff that I have had contact with are very professional, helpful and friendly and I have no concerns about leaving them carrying out their work around the School unsupervised. I would have no problem in recommending this Company to other Schools or Organisations and I hope our working relationship continues for many years to come.
