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:
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.
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:
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)
