Legionella testing is a specialised activity in which water is carefully sampled
from your system into sterile containers that are then processed, incubated and analysed
to determine the level of legionella bacteria present in the water system. This is
NOT 'dipslide testing'!
All testing is undertaken in a UKAS accredited laboratory and a certificate will
Undertake sampling of your system following the recommendations of:
BS 7592:2008 Sampling of legionella bacteria in water systems - Code of practice.
HSE document L8: Legionnaires’ disease - The control of legionella bacteria in water
systems’ - Approved Code of Practice and guidance.
Legionella Control in Water
Legionella risk assessments - Evaporative cooling towers and other systems
Implementation of control measures - dosing, monitoring, system chlorination
