Understanding Legionella


Legionella or “Legionnaires’ disease” can be a fatal form of pneumonia. It is contracted by inhaling small droplets of water contaminated with the Legionella pneumophila bacteria. 


This bacteria is commonly found in natural water sources such as rivers and lakes. But it can also grow in man-made water systems such as cooling towers, air conditioning units and hot tubs.


People who are part of the following categories are more susceptible to catching Legionnaires’ disease:


  • Adults over the age of 45
  • Heavy drinkers and smokers
  • People with chronic respiratory or kidney problems
  • People with weakened immune systems


If you think you or someone you know may have contracted Legionnaires’ disease, it is important to seek medical help as soon as possible.


Symptoms and Complications of Legionnaires’ Disease


The incubation period for Legionnaires’ disease is two to 14 days. Early symptoms of the disease include:


  • Fever
  • Muscle pains
  • Headaches
  • Tiredness
  • Dry cough


As the disease progresses, patients may develop more severe symptoms such as:


  • Chest pains
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Confusion and disorientation
  • Kidney failure
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhoea


In some cases, Legionnaires’ disease can be fatal, especially if it is not diagnosed and treated early. That’s why it’s important to check yourself by a doctor if you think you may have contracted the disease.


Preventing Legionnaires’ Disease


legionella-risk-assessment-eastbourneWays to prevent Legionnaires’ disease include regularly cleaning and disinfecting all water tanks, pipes and other potential sources of contamination. It is also important to flush out these systems regularly to prevent the build-up of bacteria.


The best way to prevent Legionnaires’ disease is to have a comprehensive and up-to-date legionella risk assessment for your property. This will identify any potential sources of legionella bacteria and recommend measures to control the growth of bacteria and prevent further exposure.


If you are responsible for managing a commercial property, it is also a legal requirement to have a Legionella risk assessment every year. This assessment should be conducted by a qualified professional with experience in this field.
