What is Legionella?

Legionella is a dangerous bacterium that can cause Legionnaire's disease. Infection takes place via the lungs and is caused by people breathing in miniscule air-borne water particles, so-called aerosols that contain Legionella bacteria. This happens when contaminated water atomises, under the shower for instance, or via a sprinkler system. This may lead to symptoms, ranging from a minor flu to pneumonia.

Multiplying Legionella bacteria

The Legionella bacterium can always be found in water, but it becomes a problem only when the bacteria are allowed to multiply. This tends to happen in stagnant water with a temperature between 25 and 60°C. Fortunately, there is a lot we can do to prevent this from happening.
