This lack of use will lead to water stagnation which coupled with our lovely, warm, weather will have created the perfect conditions for legionella growth  Bacteria love to be warm, sheltered and have a food source. This legionella growth will have occurred in both the biofilm and the body of the water.

It is important to disinfected water systems prior to staff returning to work to ensure that the water is safe and legionella free.
