Brecongate provides a range of products and services for legionella control and prevention in water systems.

Because of the significant risk to public health associated with Legionnaires’ Disease and Legionellosis, the control of the bacteria or legionella treatment is regulated by health and safety law in the UK .

In the UK it is covered by the COSHH regulations and ACoP L8 published by the HSE – “Legionnaires’ Disease: The Control of Legionella Bacteria in Water Systems – Approved Code of Practice and Guidance (L8)” .

What is Legionnaires’ Disease?

Legionnaire’s Disease is a form of pneumonia caused by inhaling tiny water droplets which are contaminated with legionella bacteria. It is often fatal, but is wholly preventable. Legionella bacteria are commonly found in natural water systems where they pose little risk. They grow over a temperature range of 20°C to 45°C.

Below this temperature they survive dormant and as the temperature rises above 50°C they are progressively killed off and will not survive long at temperatures above 60°C.
