We can carry out Legionella risk assessments and recommend system design changes for prevention.
Legionella bacteria are commonly found in water. They multiply by feeding from the nutrients that are available in temperatures between 20-45°C. However the bacteria are dormant below 20°C and do not survive above 60°C.
The bacteria is the cause of the very serious Legionnaires’ disease. Everyone is susceptible to this disease which has potential to be a fatal form of pneumonia.
Legionnaires’ disease is contracted by inhaling droplets of water that contain the bacteria.
The key method used to control the risk is water temperature control and pipe work design to eliminate dead legs, and this is what Plumb Tomatoes specialise in!
From the simplest repair to large complex commercial installations, Plumb Tomato can always offer the best possible solution.
