Legionella and Water Testing

Legionella and Water Testing

Drinking Water Or Potable Water Testing

Is water safe enough to be consumed by humans or used with low risk of immediate or long-term harm?

Relevant tests provided by Envirochem:

  • Total coliforms
  • E.coli
  • Total viable counts 2 days at 37°C
  • Total viable counts 3 days at 22°C
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa and/or species

Recreational Water Testing

Pools and SPAs Infectious agents can be easily introduced to a spa pool via bathers, from dirt entering the pool or from the water source itself. Once in the spa pool, conditions often exist for these infectious agents to grow and proliferate.

Relevant tests:

  • Total coliforms
  • E.coli
  • Total viable counts 1 days at 37°C
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Legionella

Legionella Testing

The bacterium legionella pneumophila and related bacteria may be found in purpose-built water systems such as cooling towers, evaporative condensers, hot and cold water systems and spa pools.

Envirochem now offer legionella tests for the marine industry, by using the most up to date scientific techniques, covering any water system such as:

  • Water supply system on ships
  • Any drinking water service
  • Swimming pools
  • Spa pools
  • Vending machines
  • Hot and cold water systems
  • Cooling waters
  • Process waters
  • Humidifiers
  • Hot & cold systems
  • Showers
  • Water storage tanks

If conditions are favourable, the bacteria may grow increasing the risks of Legionnaires’ disease and it is, therefore, important to control the risks by introducing appropriate measures outlined in Legionnaires' disease - The Control of Legionella bacteria in water systems (L8)
