Can I mix the samples?

It is recommended that you use one sample bottle for each sample point. Do not mix samples from more than one tap as this will dilute positive results and gives no indication of what outlet or area is affected.

How much water should I sample?

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.

How long does it take to get the results?

We will start analysing your water sample as soon as we receive the bottles. The legionella bacteria culture test tasks at least 10 days to confirm results.

What the results mean?

uRisk is a water hygiene specialist, so unlike many other water testing service providers we are not just a laboratory we're water hygiene consultants, and therefore can explain what your results mean, and what the next actions are to remove the bacteria from your water system. uRisk offers disinfection and chlorination services for legionella when detected.
