LEGIONELLA TESTING – HOTELS

Legionella test kits for Hotels

Danger Areas

Peak demand for hot water in the early morning and early evening can provide a stern test for the hot water supply. Older or inefficient systems may only provide luke warm water at certain times of the day, this may be particularly apparent at the furthest outlets where water temperatures may never attain a high enough temperature to kill any legionella bacteria.
If there is low occupancy rates or rooms out of service awaiting refurbishment, then legionella bacteria can proliferate in these conditions.

A regime of regular flushing and more frequent legionella testing should be undertaken until the hot water system is upgraded.
