What is Legionella Bacteria?

Legionella bacteria is found in natural environments including ponds, rivers and lakes and causes Legionnaires Disease. Legionella can also be supplied in small amounts within the mains water supply where it can multiple within hours in your hot and cold water systems.

Where does Legionella Grow?

Legionella may grow in ANY water systems for a range of simple reasons such as stagnation, poor temperatures, lack of management and nutrients. These conditions in combination of the creation of water droplets (aerosols) where people using or within the area of these services may be at risk.

What the HSE says?

There is a Legionella risk for the bacteria to grow in any water system with the right conditions, therefore it is an absolute need to manage and mitigate this and according to the HSE

“If you are an employer, or someone in control of premises, including landlords you need to be aware of the risks that legionella poses.”

Legionella Testing Services V’s DIY Legionella Testing Kit

Legionella Sampling Plan

To accurately sample for Legionella, it’s important to understand how many hot and cold water systems you have and what the risks are. A Legionella Risk Assessment will help provide this information for your Legionella Sample Plan, to help identify sample quantities, locations, and methods required. Without a LRA it may be difficult to undertake a DIY Legionella Testing Kit accurately and in accordance with compliance by yourself.

Is a DIY Legionella Testing Kit cheaper?

The difference between an online DIY Legionella Testing Kit to a Legionella Testing Service is in the Legionella Sample Plan. When you buy a kit online from an e-commerce store, you are only buying the kit. This will typically include limited advice on where to take your sample from. Whereas, uRisk’s Legionella Testing Service will include an engineer to visit site and evaluate your risk areas by reviewing your Legionella Risk Assessment. If you do not have a Legionella Risk Assessment, this is your best place to start, as it is your legal requirement to undertake a one for Legionella as identified by the HSE.

There are many legionella testing kits available online from non-specialists who operate as an e-commerce store that may not provide the same level of service. The first thing to consider

Where can I sample with a DIY Legionella Sample Kit?

The DIY Legionella Sample Kit is suitable for any hold and cold systems in your domestic or commercial property. You may use them for cold water storage tanks, cylinders, dental water lines, swimming pools, and any where it is safe to sample water.

The bottle must be full, with at least 250ml of water to undertake the test. Refunds will not be offered where minimum sample requirements are not met.
