Legionella Treatment Remediation

Legionella treatment and remediation is a process used to remove Legionella bacteria from water systems. This process can be done by using chlorine or other chemicals to kill the bacteria, or by physically removing the bacteria from the water system.

Legionella treatment and remediation is important because Legionella bacteria can cause a serious respiratory illness called Legionnaires’ disease. Legionnaires’ disease is a severe form of pneumonia that can be fatal. The illness is most commonly seen in people over the age of 50, and those with weakened immune systems.

Removing Legionella Bacteria

There are a number of methods for eliminating Legionella bacteria and preventing it from happening in the first place. It’s possible that you’ll need to make some modifications to your water system, such as replacing a dead leg.

In many situations, professional cleaning and disinfection is the best option. The two most popular methods for disinfecting water services are:

  • Thermal disinfection – Boosting the temperature of your hot water system. Legionella organisms cannot survive in higher temperatures. Next, we would draw the hotter water through to every outlet. We would then let the water flush out at a slow rate for a set period of time.
  • Chemical disinfection – is the process of adding an effective cleansing agent, such as chlorine, to your water system. This substance is then drawn through every outlet in your house and left there for a set period of time before each outlet is closed again.

Legionella Treatment Remediation- Frequently Asked Questions

Below we’ve outlined some commonly asked questions about Legionella Treatment Remediation. Still got a question, contact us and request a call back from one of our Legionella Consultants.

What is Legionella and why is it dangerous?

Legionella is a type of bacteria found in water systems that can cause Legionnaires’ disease, a severe form of pneumonia. It becomes dangerous when inhaled through aerosolised water droplets, such as those from showers or cooling towers.

What is involved in a Legionella risk assessment?

A risk assessment involves identifying potential sources of Legionella, evaluating the current control measures, and determining the necessary steps to mitigate the risk, including regular monitoring and maintenance routines.

What are the recommended frequencies for flushing infrequently used outlets?

Outlets that are infrequently used should be flushed at least weekly to prevent water stagnation, which can promote the growth of Legionella.

What maintenance is required for Thermostatic Mixing Valves (TMVs)?

TMVs should be tested every six months to ensure they are functioning correctly and serviced annually to maintain their efficiency and reliability.

What is involved in the quarterly cleaning and disinfection of cooling towers?

This involves removing any scale, sludge, or biofilm from the cooling towers, followed by disinfection to ensure that Legionella bacteria are eradicated.

How often should Legionella risk assessments be conducted?

A full risk assessment should be conducted regularly and reviewed whenever there are changes to the water system, building use, or if there is any reason to believe the assessment is no longer valid. At a minimum, this should be done bi-annually.

Why is temperature control important in preventing Legionella?

Legionella bacteria thrive in water temperatures between 20°C and 45°C. Keeping hot water above 60°C and cold water below 20°C helps prevent the bacteria from growing.

How often should water samples be tested for Legionella?

The frequency of water testing should be determined by a risk assessment but is typically completed between 6 monthly and monthly for high-risk systems. Regular testing ensures compliance with health and safety standards.

How often should water storage tanks be inspected and cleaned?

Water storage tanks should be inspected and cleaned annually to ensure they remain free of contaminants and are in good condition.

Why is it important to maintain proper chlorine levels and pH in water systems?

Maintaining appropriate chlorine levels and pH is crucial because they help control bacterial growth, including Legionella, ensuring the safety of the water system.
