Record keeping is an important part of looking after your private supply. Any treatment system should come with an appropriate set of instructions for use and operation. Your documents should also detail any maintenance requirements, including the criteria and regime for the replacement of any products or substances, which must meet the requirements of Regulation 5 (England and Wales).
Reputable installers should provide a practical instruction and demonstration of the management and maintenance of the system to customers.
The Inspectorate recommends that installers explain the importance of record keeping including the management and maintenance records of any newly installed system to assist with the risk assessment process, required under the regulations.
