How We Test for Legionella
We provide Legionella testing in Lancashire as part of our full roster of Legionella, detection, prevention and control services:
- Legionella Risk Assessments
- Legionella Control
- Legionella Remedial Works
- Disinfection of Hot and Cold Water Systems
When you book our assessment and testing services, our trained technicians will come to your premises at your convenience to carry out thorough reviews of your water systems:
- Technicians will test water temperature at key points in your system with UKAS calibrated thermometers which get the most accurate readings
- They will extract water samples to send to a UKAS laboratory for Legionella count testing
- We send the results of all tests to you in one report for your records, which explains all of our findings and what they mean
The Next Steps
The test results in your report will show the amount of Legionella found in water samples as “colony-forming units per litre” or “cfu/l”. If the figure is greater than 100 cfu/l, it means your water systems require further investigation. If it is higher than 1,000 cfu/l, immediate action must be taken.
Our team can then help you with Legionella control schemes with actionable points that get your water systems compliant, including another date for further Legionella testing once remedial action has been taken.
Which Water Systems Need Legionella Testing?
All hot and cold water systems need regular Legionella risk assessments. This is especially true for systems that may go through periods of low use – Legionella bacteria favours stagnant water. Water systems need to be cleaned and disinfected regularly, as debris, limescale, and other bacteria provide ideal sources of nutrition that allow it to thrive to dangerous levels.
High-risk systems include:
- Shower heads and taps
- Swimming pools
- Air conditioning units
- Cooling towers
- Medical equipment like dentist waterlines
