The Importance of Regular Testing

Once Legionella has made it onto your vessel, the right conditions can cause it to grow and spread and ships are considered particularly high-risk environments for the growth of Legionella for a variety of reasons. With such a high risk of contamination, maintaining the quality of water on-board your vessel with regular testing is vital.

By carrying out regular testing, you are able to identify small amounts of Legionella bacteria before they become too great a threat. If you do not test regularly you run the risk of widespread contamination, which may result in your water system, and therefore your entire vessel, being out of action while it is disinfected.
