    What is Legionella and Why is Water Treatment Necessary?

    Legionella is a type of bacteria that can cause Legionnaires’ disease, a severe form of pneumonia, when inhaled through contaminated water droplets. These bacteria thrive in warm, stagnant water conditions commonly found in building water systems, such as hot and cold water distribution networks, cooling towers, storage tanks and other water-based equipment.

    Legionella water treatment is crucial to prevent the growth and spread of these harmful bacteria, ensuring a safe environment for employees, tenants, and visitors.
