    Why a Legionella Risk Assessment is Essential

    Legionella bacteria can grow in any purpose-built water system. When anyone breathes in tiny water droplets infected with Legionella bacteria, they can develop serious diseases like Legionnaires’ disease, a potentially fatal form of pneumonia. 

    Any hot and cold water system that grows sediment, scale and other bacteria provides an ideal feeding ground for the bacteria to grow. If the water temperature is consistently between 20 and 45 degrees Celsius, this allows the bacteria to thrive and spread. Combine this with an aerosol release, and the risk of exposure to Legionella bacteria and the subsequent development of potentially fatal diseases is very high.
