What Is Legionella?

Legionella is a type of bacteria that can cause Legionnaires’ disease, a serious and potentially fatal form of pneumonia. The bacteria is commonly found in water systems, such as those used for cooling or heating, and can spread through droplets of water in the air, making it a potential health hazard.


Where Does Legionella Come From?

Legionella can come from a variety of sources, including:


  • Water systems in buildings, such as cooling towers, evaporative condensers, hot and cold water systems, spa pools and showerheads
  • Natural water sources, such as ponds, lakes and rivers
  • Soil and other organic matter


Our specialists conduct tests to determine the presence of Legionella.


Who Is at Risk?

People of all ages can be infected with Legionella, but those most at risk include:


  • People over the age of 45
  • Smokers
  • Heavy drinkers
  • People with chronic lung diseases
  • People with weakened immune systems


It’s imperative that you seek medical help right away if you become infected with Legionella.


What Are the Symptoms?

  • High fever
  • Coughing up blood
  • Muscle aches and pains
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhoea


Legionnaires’ disease is diagnosed by taking a sample of lung fluid from the patient and testing it for the presence of Legionella bacteria. This can be done through a chest x-ray or CT scan or by taking a sample of phlegm (mucus) from the lungs.
