Water Management Seminar Cancelled, Join Us in December
Our focus is always on the safety and health of our communities. Watch for details soon about our winter seminar.
Legionnaires’ Disease is contracted by inhaling aerosolized water droplets containing the Legionella bacteria. The only way to know if you have Legionella in your water systems is to test.
Periodic testing is important for all water systems but is especially important for complex water systems such as those associated with hospitals and long-term care facilities. Periodic testing as part of your water management program helps you manage your risk of causing a Legionnaires’ Disease outbreak.
You can do the water sampling yourself by following the procedures given to you by a Legionella consultant or you can hire a trained water management company to obtain the samples for you. Solid Blend Technologies' water technologists receive special training in Legionella Detection, Remediation, Control, and Outbreak Response and will be happy to assist you with your testing needs.
NOTE: In order to get accurate results, there are very specific procedures for water sample collection and shipping – please see the CDC Sampling Procedure Document for more information.All systems that put water into the air should be tested including:
Solid Blend uses and strongly suggests the use of a CDC ELITE Certified Lab when testing for Legionella bacteria. These labs have been specifically trained in developing the Legionella culture and identifying the bacteria. Many clinical labs are not able to generate accurate results which potentially leaves you open to liability.
