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.

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.

Many Legionella service providers claim that their risk assessments are conducted and produced in line with the British standard for Legionella risk assessments, BS8580-1: 2019, but what does that really mean? What do you need to do to comply with the British standard?
