  • Healthcare premises (Recommended quarterly)
  • Care homes (Recommended quarterly)
  • Domestics where temperatures are inadequate to control Legionella (As Required until problem is resolved)
  • Buildings where biocides are used instead of temperature (Recommend quarterly until control is established)
  • Where there is suspicion of a case of Legionella infection
  • Spa Pool operators (At least quarterly)
  • Industrial process waters (As required by risk assessment – Talk to us about Legionella Risk Assessments)

Remedial Action following results

Not detected or

In healthcare, the primary concern is protecting susceptible patients, so any detection of legionella should be investigated and, if necessary, the system resampled to aid interpretation of the results in line with the monitoring strategy and risk assessment
>100 cfu/l and
up to 1000 cfu/l
Either:
■ if the minority of samples are positive, the system should be resampled. If similar results are found again, review the control measures and risk assessment to identify any remedial actions necessary or
■ if the majority of samples are positive, the system may be colonised, albeit at a low level. An immediate review of control measures and a risk assessment should be carried out to identify any other remedial action required. Disinfection of the system should be considered
>1000 cfu/lThe system should be resampled and an immediate review of the control measures and risk assessment carried out to identify any remedial actions, including possible disinfection of the system. Retesting should take place a few days after disinfection and at frequent intervals thereafter until a satisfactory level of control is achieved

About the Analysis

Notes: Legionella testing analysis takes at minimum 10 days to complete, however, if analysis is showing positive for legionella earlier than this you will be notified immediately. For this reason no (early) news is good news.

Please ensure that you post your samples the same day that you collect them and, because our lab is shut at the weekend, plan your sampling so they arrive with us between Monday and Friday i.e. its best to sample between Monday and Thursday but be aware of any bank holidays.

    I found Feedwater on Google when looking for Legionnaires Disease water testing. The website gave clear info on their services and fees plus a straight forward application form. I received the pack within days, followed the instruction on water testing and returned the sample as instructed. Within the stated time I received the results by email.

    I will use Feedwater again and would certainly recommend them

    A very simple test for Legionella in a property which I rent out. The kit arrived promptly with clear, specific instructions on how to conduct the test. The sample was then sent to the Feedwater lab in the enclosed, pre-paid package, and the results e-mailed back in the form of a certificate. The certificate is now lodged with our Letting Agent, complying with current legislation. Feedwater also advised to do a Risk Assessment, and e-mailed a simple form, which I have also completed and lodged with the Agents. Excellent service and support from this company.

    We have used Feedwater for a number of years now, mainly for legionella process water testing by post. This has worked well for us and now that we need a site water system risk assessment we have asked feedwater to complete this for us although in the early stages we are confidant that this work will be carried out to to our satisfaction.

    John Fraser (verified owner)

    This is the third year that we have used Feedwater to carry out our water sampling to test for Legionella. The process is quick, efficient from placing our order on line for sample bottles to getting the final test results certificates. Highly recommended.
