    LEGIONELLA TESTING – VILLAGE HALLS

    Legionella test kits for Village Halls

    Danger Areas

    Most village halls have basic water systems which, if used several times each week, should not present a high risk. If the hall is used less frequently or has a hot water cylinder which is only heated as required, then there is the potential for legionella growth.

    Few village halls have showers, so the only probable aerosol would be from hot/cold taps. Most hot/cold taps, unless under a high pressure, do not generate the type of aerosol which permit legionella to lodge in our lungs.

    Always factor in the type of people who frequent the premises, are any elderly with impaired lungs, diabetic or have cancer or chronic kidney disease? If so, then they are the most likely to contract Legionnaires’ Disease and also have elevated fatality rates.
