Microbiological Sampling Services Coronavirus (COVID-19) Customer Information

Last updated: 3rd April 2020

Dear Customer,

At Penguin Hot Tubs Limited we are doing whatever we can to continue to provide the very highest level of customer care and support that we can during this difficult period. Our highest priority is the safety of all our valued customers and colleagues. We recognise the increased uncertainty that coronavirus is causing, and we also know that the Pool and Hot Tub Industry has an important role to play at ensuring water is safe and free from harmful bacteria that can pose a risk to health.

Our thoughts are with everyone who has been affected by the Coronavirus outbreak. These are tough, unprecedented times, and the information and guidelines we get from government are changing daily. We are following these guidelines and recommendations closely, as well as implementing our own practices and procedures to reduce risk.

“Service engineers and technicians are able to attend site to deal with the repair and maintenance of pool plant and equipment to avoid possible health and safety issues, with water hygiene and electrical safety. It is vital that pools and hot tubs can be maintained correctly and often this can only be undertaken by professional service engineers. This will ensure that there are no public health issues with stagnant untreated water from various pathogens such as Pseudomonas, E. coli, Legionella, etc. which can pose a serious risk to health” - The British and Irish Spa and Hot Tub Association (BISHTA)

Social Distancing

For our company to carry out microbiological water samplings it may be advisable for customers to remain in an area not connected to the area of work to reduce any risk. Once our water technicians have completed collecting water samples, also wiping down anything they have come into contact with then the customer would be able to return. Our water technicians will take extra precautions during the visit, including keeping a safe distance from members of the public, using all relevant personal protective equipment (PPE).
