    What Are Legionella Remedial Works?

    Legionella remedial works are the next step after a Legionella Risk Assessment has identified Legionella risks in your water system. The remedial works function to remove these risks within your water system and improve its safety and compliance with corrective measures.

    When Are Remedial Works Needed?

    Remedial works are needed when risks in your water system have been identified. There are 4 key elements that allow Legionella bacteria to grow and cause danger:

    1. Habitat, including showerheads, sprinkler hoses, taps, hot water cylinders, poor plumbing, and other system issues.
    2. Food sources like sediment, scale and other bacteria.
    3. Warm temperatures between 20-25 degrees celsius. 
    4. Aerosol release of water droplets.

    As all of the above are so common in any water system, it is essential to ensure good water hygiene and full Legionella compliance.

    How Long Do Legionella Remedial Works Take?

    What Do I Need to Do After the Remedial Works Have Been Completed?

    Once remedial works have been completed, you need to ensure that you implement a regime of Legionella monitoring. This includes making periodical checks and maintenance and keeping a record of everything done in order to fulfil legal duties and monitoring requirements.
