Plumbing & Cold Water
Exposure to legionella bacteria can lead to a potentially fatal form of pneumonia, and it is quite easy to become infected from airborne particles and other contaminants. Legionella bacteria grows in water systems where the temperature is between 20°C to 45°C, and the optimum range is between 35°C and 40°C. It is very hard to completely eradicate the bacteria from man-made water systems and so you need to monitor systems, plant and equipment very closely.
What does legionella monitoring involve?
First of all you need to appoint a competent person who is qualified and able to carry out monitoring and control of your water systems. This will involve:
- carrying out a water safety risk assessment
- preparing control measures to prevent bacteria growth
- implementing and managing these control measures – sampling, dosing and cleaning systems
- Maintaining records
- Repeating this program on a routine basis
