Robbie King is a Compliance Technician at Aqualytix, who’s swapped his lab coat for his laptop to ensure Aqualytix and our customers reach and maintain water hygiene compliance. Recently, he’s been busy with an LCA audit. We ask him what it is and why it matters.
Twelve months ago, Severn Trent Services Water Hygiene rebranded as Aqualytix to better reflect the long-term direction of the business.
‘Aqua’ represents expertise in water treatment and Legionella control – plus roots in the water industry. ‘Lytix’ represents harnessing data to transform the customer experience.
One year on, the business has gone from strength to strength – generating record profits – and has since acquired water treatment consultancy MA Solutions. The Aqualytix business makes a critical contribution to the success of the Severn Trent Services family of businesses, part of Severn Trent Plc.
Neil Tod, managing director of Aqualytix, reflects on the success of the last 12 months and shares his ambitions for 2024.
Guy Hadland is the Head of Sales at Aqualytix, specialists in water treatment and Legionella control. But over the summer, he was nicknamed ‘Chemo Kid’ by fellow patients while being treated for stage 4 Hodgkin lymphoma.
For Movember – a month dedicated to men’s health awareness – Guy tells us how he overcame the physical and mental challenges associated with his cancer diagnosis and treatment. And how he felt when he saw the scan pictures that showed he was cancer-free.

How Often Should My Legionella Risk Assessment Be Reviewed?
Continuing on our Legionella Risk Assessment series. Last time we took a ‘deep dive’ into the competence which should be expected of a risk assessor as well as proportionality in assessing large portfolios of similar building stock. In this article we will be taking a look at the guidance around completing Legionella risk assessment reviews. In our experience it’s not uncommon for ‘end users’ to ask the question- When should I review an existing Legionella risk assessment? Its not uncommon to hear very different opinions on this matter but fortunately there are a number of excellent information sources which can be consulted on when a risk assessment should be reviewed.
This case study describes how our Infrastructure Services teams spotted an opportunity to improve water asset infrastructure to protect future water supplies in a way that avoided disturbing the ecological balance of the local watercourse.
