Danger Areas

Changing facilities on sports fields, particularly showers, may only be used at weekends. Electric showers have a lower risk so long as they are descaled and disinfected regularly, whereas, showers fed from a stored hot water supply usually pose a much higher risk.

This risk increases further if the hot water source is only turned on a hour or two before the showers are needed especially if the water does not attain 60°C in the storage vessel.

Procedures should be followed which ensures a safe water supply, even if this means changing the type of showers used. In the meantime, AquaCert can provide an inexpensive method of monitoring for legionella in the water to ensure any existing bacteria do not go undetected.
