As a result it is extremely important to be able to demonstrate competence when assigning a risk rating to a water system. All of Aqua Legion UK Ltd risk assessors are competent to conduct risk assessments on the buildings they are assigned to manage. Our ACOP L8 legionella risk assessments and commitment to BS ensures the risk rating is derived by assessing the following:- The actual and potential risk for Legionella bacteria to colonise and proliferate in the system. The actual and potential risk for the Legionella to be disseminated in an aerosol form. The actual and potential risk for susceptible individuals to be exposed. Further to this, the effectiveness of the control and preventative measures in place are assessed along with the effects of out of line situations on the risk levels, the management structure and communication structure as minimum.

Uses include identifying little used outlets, an iButton is installed on the hot water supply to a wash hand basin. The iButton records the temperature every few minutes for a week, if the WHB is used temperatures will peak, if not they will flat line.

Set to monitor temperatures every minutes an iButton fitted to a cold water storage tank outlet could record temperatures across all four seasons.

Heat[ edit ] The more expensive[ citation needed ] of these two options is temperature control—i. The high cost incurred with this method arises from the extensive retrofitting required for existing complex distribution systems in large facilities and the energy cost of chilling or heating the water and maintaining the required temperatures at all times and at all distal points within the system. For systems with marginal issues, chlorine provides effective results at 0. For systems with significant Legionella problems, temporary shock chlorination—where levels are raised to higher than 2 ppm for a period of 24 hours or more and then returned to 0.
