Legionella Bacteria Testing

Why Test for Legionella Bacteria?

Arc Water Treatment has always been a strong proponent for proactive monitoring of potential legionella sources. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and OSHA estimate that tens of thousands of people contract Legionnaires ’ disease every year in the United States, and many die when not diagnosed immediately. Their counterparts in the United Kingdom and Australia take a proactive approach and require regular testing with very stringent protocols.

• The benefits of routine testing for legionella far outweigh the potential health and legal risks involved from not testing.

• Regular testing for legionella can help prevent potential and sometimes fatal outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease.

• Routine testing for legionella safeguards the health and well-being of building tenants and visitors to the facility.

• Certified laboratory test results provide documented historical data to protect building owners and managers against potential litigation in the event of an outbreak.

• Periodic monitoring for legionella bacteria supplements a comprehensive maintenance program of due diligence when performing HVAC

preventative maintenance procedures.

Arc Water Treatment offers a competitively priced test with timely results that provides building owners/managers with valuable information about potential health risks involving their cooling or domestic water systems.
