Legionnaires’ disease occurs as a result of infections caused by the legionellaceae family of bacteria.


It is a form of pneumonia which results in around 250 identified cases a year and can prove fatal, especially to the elderly or those prone to respiratory problems or with impaired immune systems.


Legionnaires’ disease is contracted by inhaling small droplets of water suspended in air which contain the legionella bacterium.


Legionella bacteria occur naturally in surface water and soils etc but can also proliferate within man-made environments such as cooling towers, swimming pools, domestic hot-water systems and showers, ice making machine, refrigerated cabinets, whirlpool spas, hot springs, fountains, dental equipment, industrial coolants and many more.


Proliferation of the bacteria typically occurs between 20°C - 45°C and is assisted by the presence of suitable nutrients present in dirt, sludge and scale as well as conditions of poor water flow and stagnation occurring in water systems.


In the UK employers are required to control the risk of exposure to legionella bacteria in accordance with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations. This is achieved by following the Approved Code of Practice (ACoP) L8 the Control of Legionella (Bacteria in Water Systems) and in general these require the employer to conduct the following:


  • Identification & assessment of the legionella risk
  • Prevention or minimisation of risk from exposure to legionella
  • Systems for the management and selection, training and competence of personnel
  • Record keeping of maintenance, cleaning and disinfection of legionella


Whether you run a commercial office, school or are a manufacturer, monitoring water usage is becoming more important every day, especially with the growing strain on our waterways and changeable weather patterns.


By collecting temperature information regularly to monitor water tank temperatures you can be assured your tank’s environment will not be storing any problems. With configurable temperature settings our Smart sensor service will monitor water temperature to confirm it is kept within guidelines.


Embedded alerts will also tell you of any drifts in temperature, so you can keep on top of the situation and maintain a healthy water environment. Alerts can be sent by email to appropriate personnel.
