Legionella testing and water sampling made simple

In our experience, many schools struggle to make sense of complicated water systems that have been expanded over many years. It’s hard to know how your systems work, let alone where your Legionella risk is highest.

That’s why our Legionella risk assessments begin with an in-depth appraisal of your assets. We consider variables like water temperature and frequency of use to properly assess your risk and take samples where they will be most informative.

Then, we test samples at our UKAS-accredited lab, report on your current compliance, and set a schedule for ongoing management and maintenance. It’s everything you need to meet your legal obligations.
