Legionella risk assessments

Periodic sampling of water from taps, shower heads and other various water outlets are carried out at a variety of hotels, health care facilities and factories in order to determine legionella levels and other microbiological and chemical parameters in domestic cold and hot water. Samples are tested by our accredited laboratory partners. 

What is Legionella?

According  to  the  Maltese  Public  Health Act  any  hot  and/or  cold  water  system must  be  tested  for  Legionella  bacteria periodically. Legionella is a freshwater bacterium which

grows readily in hot and cold water bodies such  as  in  spas,  pools,  cooling  waters, showers,  and  fountains  or  any  water system  involving  the  vaporisation  of water.  Outbreaks  of  Legionella  bacteria can  cause  Legionnaire’s  disease,  which  is an aggressive form of pneumonia.
