Stay compliant with our legionella monitoring services.
Legionnaire’s disease is caused by legionella bacteria infecting your lungs. Low, harmless quantities of the bacteria are usually found in water such as lakes, ponds and rivers. The problems arise if the bacteria multiply and find their way into artificial water supplies – the classic case being air conditioning systems, although it has been reported in showers, sprinkler systems and spas.
Cases of Legionnaire’s disease are most often reported in large buildings such as hotels, hospitals and office blocks. All that legionella bacteria needs to spread is the combination of a water temperature of between 20-45C and impurities in the water to feed on such as rust, algae or limescale.
