As well as having a Legionella Risk Assessment in place you may also have a requirement to carry out Legionella Testing. We recommend that testing be carried out as part of the initial inspection and then further testing at a frequency defined by the risk assessment if a need for testing has been identified.
All water samples should be tested by a UKAS accredited laboratory as required by the HSE ACOP L8. At Water Wise we have a testing contract with one of the country’s biggest and leading UKAS accredited testing laboratories.
We offer several types of Legionella testing as well as Microbiological Analysis which looks for other types of bacteria such as coliforms or E. coli. These bacteria can on their own cause serious illness.
Our normal turnaround time for test results is on average 14 days unless otherwise stated. Once testing is complete you are issued with a test certificate and any recommended actions that may be required.
