Testing Domestic Hot- and Cold-Water Systems for Legionella

For reliable Legionella testing, look no further than Water Compliance Solutions. The ACOP L8 and associated guidance HSG74 Part 2 advises that Legionella checks are not normally required on a well-maintained and managed water system. Nevertheless, it is advisable to regularly check that your water systems are protected against Legionella.

Why Should You Check for Legionella?

The Health & Safety Executive recommend that periodic water samples should be taken and tested for the presence of Legionella to ensure bacteria counts are maintained within acceptable limits and adequate control over the water system is being achieved. The frequency of such testing should reflect the type of water system, the level of risk, and the specific recommendations identified in the risk assessment.
