Legionella Testing in 4 Easy Steps

Step 1

We post you a testing kit, a pre-labelled courier bag and some simple instructions.

Step 2

You fill the bottle(s) in the kit, with samples from hot water taps around the building and place the filled bottles in the courier bag.

Step 3

You ring us on 0800 320 2037 to let us know that your samples are ready for collection and we despatch a courier to transport them to the UKAS accredited laboratory.

Step 4

At the end of the process, we issue you with a testing certificate to prove that the test has been carried out. We also remind you when the next test is due, one less thing for you to remember.

How long does the test 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 sometimes 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.
