Warm Water & Legionella

Warm water is a breeding ground for dangerous Legionella bacteria. UV-C light inactivates or outright destroys this pathogen when exposed.

UV Water Disinfection for Warm Water and Legionella Treatment

Legionnaires Disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia caused by the Legionella bacteria – and it thrives in warm water. Low levels of Legionella are commonly found in drinking water supplies, however these multiply quickly to dangerous levels within warm water infrastructure such as water heaters and hot water recirculation systems. Particular attention should be paid at nursing homes, hospitals and other care facilities where warm water users may have lowered immune systems.

Legionella warm water treatment with UV disinfection provides a highly effective and chemical-free solution. Unlike chlorine use, there is no harm in overdosing and no need to store dangerous chemicals in plant rooms.
