How To Stay Ahead Of The Legionella Curve

Legionella can become fatal if not treated quickly. Therefore, taking suitable precautions for you and your family is essential, as prevention is undoubtedly better than cure. However, many people are unaware of the severe dangers of Legionella, which can put lives at risk.

So, to avoid facing unnecessary challenges, Canadian Water Compliance has put together a guide to show you how to stay ahead of the curve. By following these tips, we are sure that you will feel confident about moving forward with your Legionella water testing requirements. Read on to learn more.

1. Why is Legionella testing relevant to me?
Legionella affects the lungs and displays symptoms similar to Pneumonia. It can get contracted by breathing in the aerosols from contaminated water systems. To understand more of its effects, you can call Canadian Water Compliance to arrange a Lunch and Learn.

2. How is Legionella prevented?
Legionella bacteria thrive in water temperatures between 25°C and 45°C. Therefore, testing and monitoring water systems, including cooling towers, showers, decorative fountains, and jacuzzis, is essential.

3. How do I rectify a positive test incident?
If you receive a positive test, you must call your local water treatment experts immediately, who will work with you to remove the bacteria. We can then jump into action and get your building certified as “Legionella Free” after conducting the lab tests.
