Water Sampling Services

Bacterial analysis and legionella water testing is the process of taking a water sample, in a suitable bottle that is maintained in a sterile state until used, these samples are then sent across to our partner UKAS accredited laboratory for quick analysis and fast results. 

Although not legally required in many systems, regular water sampling can help clients to provide an effective way of ascertaining assurances that the control measures in place are effective. 

HC Legionella Ltd are able to collect water samples fully utilising the methodologies listed in BS7592:2022 Sampling for Legionella Bacteria in Water Systems. 

Once collected the samples will be transported to our partner UKAS accredited lab for analysis.
