Legionnaires’ disease is an extreme form of pneumonia that affects the respiratory system, and in some cases, can cause death.
The disease occurs when micro water droplets containing Legionella bacterium are inhaled through the mouth or nose by the unsuspecting victim. People cannot contract Legionnaires’ Disease by just drinking contaminated water as the disease needs an environment where water can become aerosolized and inhaled, such as in showers, ornamental fountains, cooling towers, and even hot tubs. Legionnaires’ Disease occurs mostly in hospitals, nursing homes, hotels, and other facilities with extensive water systems. Therefore, such facilities must be proactive in their environmental safety and find effective Legionella growth prevention and compliance solutions.
