Why are hollow lid supports not compliant?

Hollow water tank roof supports allow bacteria to form within a cold water storage tank due to the restricted movement of water within the hollow tubes subsequently causing water to stagnate therefore allowing for the increased possibility of Legionella bacteria being able to proliferate.

Cold water storage tanks that contain hollow supports have been identified by the Heath & safety executives ACoP L8 as being non-compliant, therefore it has been recommended all hollow tank supports should be removed and replaced with WRAS approved solid supports to eliminate any possibility of stagnation or the build up of biofilm.
