WHAT IS LEGIONELLA?

Legionnaires’ disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia caused by inhalation of tiny droplets of water contaminated with Legionella bacteria. Legionella can lurk in hot and cold water systems so, along with gas safety, electrical safety and fire risk management, the law now requires landlords to assess and manage water safety in their properties.

Warning alert
Failure to comply can result in hefty fines or even a prison sentence.
