What is Legionnaires' disease?

  • Legionnaires' disease is caused by legionella bacteria and is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia that particularly affects people already at risk due to age, illness or immunosuppression. 
  • Legionella bacteria can also cause less serious illnesses. 
  • Normally cold or flu type symptoms occur, before developing to full pneumonia in more serious cases. 
  • Infection normally occurs by breathing in small water droplets containing the bacteria, e.g. from showers, water features or hoses.
  • The Legionella bacterium is often present in natural sources of water, but can quickly multiply to harmful levels in domestic water systems if not maintained or designed properly. 
  • Although the occurrence of an infection at home is rare, Chiltern Water & Environment has assisted several clients in the past with this issue.
  • We can offer peace of mind with our residential and commercial legionella testing services across the UK. 

Nationwide pseudomonas treatment

  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an environmental organism that thrives in water systems, especially where there is an oxygenated area such as at the end of a tap or a shower head. 
  • Although many people come across it every day and remain unharmed, it can cause harm to those with compromised immune systems. This makes it particularly harmful in a hospital environment.
  • At Chiltern Water & Environment, we can carry out a specialist procedure to test for the organism and perform pseudomonas treatment on your water supply to ensure the safety and wellbeing of hospital patients or other immunocompromised people.
