What is Legionnaires' disease?

Legionnaires’ disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia which everyone is susceptible to. However, people who are at higher risk, include, people over 45 years of age, smokers and heavy drinkers, people suffering from chronic respiratory or kidney disease and anyone with an impaired immune system.

How long does the Legionella testing take?

Legionella samples must be cultured for 10 days in the laboratory, to conform to UKAS and HSE requirements. Therefore, allowing time for checking and verifying the results, your testing certificate will be available approximately 12-13 days from the date the samples were collected.

What happens if my test shows bacteria?

Don’t panic! Contrary to popular belief, it is rarely necessary to have expensive chemical disinfections of the water system, although this can be required in large scale, dangerous infections. We will advise you of the necessary course of action in your particular circumstances and guide you through it.
