Legionella Testing Kit
What is Legionella Bacteria?
The legionella bacteria is found in natural environments including ponds, rivers and lakes. The bacteria can also be supplied in small amounts within the mains water supply. Where there are water and the conditions of creating water droplets (aerosols), people using or within the area of these services may be at risk. It is this bacteria found in the water supply which is the cause of Legionnaires disease.
Where there is a potential for legionella risk, there 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.”

How long does it take for the results from the lab?
We will start analysing your water sample as soon as we receive the bottles. The legionella bacteria culture test takes at least 10 days to confirm results.
Can I mix 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 give no indication of what outlet or area is affected. Many companies provide sampling at low prices with this formula. It is not recommended and often becomes more expensive should you have a positive result, you will need to pay for more samples.
How much water should I take for the samples?
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.
What is the shelf life of this testing kit?
When it comes to testing water, time is of the essence! Once the sample is put into your sample bottle, we have 24 hours to get the test to our laboratories for testing. Any longer and this can make for inaccurate readings. We make legionella risk management easy, save some sweat and give us a call today.
