Legionella Water Test
Legionella Water Test, as a duty holder or nominated person responsible for the management of a water system you have a legal responsibility to manage and assess the risks associated with Legionella. A key component of your sites scheme of control, could be to regularly carry our legionella water tests and monitor the bacteria counts within the water system that you are responsible for.
LEGIONELLA WATER TEST SERVICE INFORMATION
Regular Legionella Water Tests are required when your legionella risk assessment and scheme of control identifies the risk and frequency of legionella water testing. Our team will take a sample of water from the specified water outlets such as showers, taps, water tanks and take them to an approved lab where the water will be sampled for legionella bacteria.
Legionella Bacteria Testing In Water
Where legionella water testing is considered appropriate, the water sampling method should be carried out in accordance with BS7592 and the biocide, if used, neutralised where possible. Water samples are tested by a UKAS-accredited laboratory that takes part in a water microbiology proficiency testing scheme. Test results are returned to the customer after the water samples have been cultured and any micro-organisms isolated and identified into the correct sero-groups. Depending on the legionella bacteria counts, Sherpa will advise on what is required and whether further legionella water tests need carrying out.
