    Legionella Monitoring Plans

    Effective Legionella control and prevention requires a comprehensive monitoring plan. The key to success is prevention, which involves eliminating the conditions that allow Legionella bacteria to thrive and multiply. By implementing a monitoring plan, you can ensure that your water system remains safe and free from the harmful bacteria. This approach is far more effective than waiting for an outbreak to occur and then trying to treat it. So, make sure you have a robust monitoring plan in place to keep your water system safe and healthy.


      Monitoring of Hot and Cold Water

      A key aspect of Legionella prevention is temperature control within your water system.

      Our services include:-  

      • Checking your Hot water is stored at 60°C
      • Checking your Hot water is distributed to reach 50°C (55°C healthcare) at an outlet within 1 minute
      • Checking your Cold water is  less than 20°C

      Web-based electronic monitoring database

      It is equally important to have a computerised database to show all your temperatures detailing passes and fails allowing you to take quick preventive action.

      We will provide you with a system that will:-

      • keep records of all your temperatures
      • store your PDF legionella risk assessment
      • store your microbiological test results
      • store your water tank chlorination certificates
      • store your risk assessment and method statements
      • store your completion reports
      • centralise all your documents for audits

      Cold Water Storage Tank Inspections

      Semi-annual inspections of cold water storage tanks will help you reduce the risk of Legionella.

      Our services include:- 


      • checking both the inside and outside of the tank and water stored within it
      • checking the tank for a tight fitted secure lid with air breather
      • checking for insulation on the tank to avoid heat gain & loss
      • checking for ingress screen
      • checking your inlet and outlet connections are on the opposite to allow good cross flow
      • checking the temperature of the tank is stored below 20°C
      • checking the overall condition of the tank

          Calorifier Inspections 

          Calorifiers can be a significant risk within a water system. It is vital to ensure they are working efficiently and effectively by maintaining the correct temperatures.


          Our services will:- 

          • check the flow and return temperatures as outgoing should be a minimum of 60°C in order to kill legionella bacteria with a return of 50°C
          • carry out calorifier blowdowns to reduce sediment build-up which can produce a suitable environment for bacteria and reduce efficiency
          • check the pipework is insulated to prevent heat loss
          • check the calorifier internals using a borescope and clean as required, followed by chlorination or a thermal pasteurisation

            Shower head Disinfections

            Yes, you can catch Legionnaires’ disease from a shower.  Showers produce a fine aerosol, and the tiny droplets can carry the harmful Legionella bacteria into the lungs where it then proliferates.

            Our services will:-

            strip, descale, clean and flush your showerheads



                  Descaling and chlorination of all water outlets


                  It is very important to remove limescale buildup as this acts as a prefect breeding ground for Legionella. 

                  Our services include:-

                  stripping, descaling, cleaning and flushing your taps, water boilers, point of use water heaters and any other water equipment you may have onsite. 


                      Before After

                      Microbiological testing

                      Finally, to determine the extent of microbiological bacteria within your system is to test.

                      We will:-

                      • test your water for the presence of Legionella
                      • All samples are analysed at a UKAS accredited laboratory for independent analysis
