As well as having a Legionella Risk Assessment in place you may have a requirement to carry out Legionella Testing.  We recommend that Legionella Testing should be carried out as part of the Risk Assessment and then annually thereafter.  More regular testing may be advised depending on the nature of the building use or the water systems in place.  All our water samples are tested by a UKAS accredited laboratory as required by the HSE ACOP L8.  Our normal turnaround time for test results is on average 14 days but can be up to 21 days. 


Many businesses and companies offer onsite Legionella testing with results in less than an hour; this does not satisfy the requirements of the Health & Safety Executives Approved Code of Practice L8.  Neither does onsite testing cover the full range of bacteria, most only test for one group of bacteria.  It does however give a quick indication of any issues.


How Much Does Legionella Testing Cost? - The cost of Legionella testing will vary depending on how many samples are to be tested.  Our minimum test fee is £75.00 which covers the first three samples taken for testing.  Each additional sample will cost £25.00.  Additional costs may apply.  Discounts are available for multiple properties for example a landlord or letting agent wanting to have risk assessments carried out at several properties.

Are We Competent? - As a Duty Holder or person in charge of premises is it your responsibility to ensure anyone who undertakes work in your property is competent to do so.  Our WaterTech engineers are City & Guilds and NVQ qualified, members of the Chartered Institute of Plumbing & Heating Engineering, Water Industry Approved and Water Safe Registered.   As Water Industry Approved Plumbers our engineers are recognised by DEFRA and the Secretary of State as Approved Contractors.  Our engineers have also been trained by Legionella Control International and hold City & Guilds accreditation in Legionella Risk Assessment, Management & Control.
