Cooling Tower Legionella Testing
Legionella is a pathogenic bacteria that causes Legionnaires disease- a potentially fatal form of pneumonia. Regularly testing your cooling towers is critical to early Legionella detection and Legionnaires disease prevention.
How Does Legionella Infect?
Legionella is found in both drinkable and non-drinkable water. As the water inside a cooling tower is aerosolized, Legionella bacteria is inhaled by those in the vicinity. It infects the lungs as its inhaled. Infection is most detrimental to those with weak immune systems.
Our Legionella prevention process includes both a DNA analysis and culture analysis. Please note, Legionella testing is performed in addition to routine water treatment services.
