eBook: Mitigating Legionella Risk in Water Heaters in Schools with Safer System Design

Legionella, a microscopic bacterium, is the cause of Legionnaires’ Disease, a type of pneumonia that can result in life-threatening complications including respiratory failure, septic shock, and acute kidney failure. “About one of every 10 people who get [it] will die from the infection.”

Why is this a current worry? The more closings, the more opportunities for this threat to grow.

Specifically in schools, there has been an increased focus on setting COVID-related safety standards for returning students and faculty. However, the attention of school administrators is not only centered on that threat—likewise, the threat of Legionella and how to mitigate the risk posed by the bacteria while creating a safe environment is a serious concern.

This eBook will help schools, hotels, commercial property owners and landlords better understand the risks of Legionella in hot water systems, and how to design a system that can mitigate the risk of Legionella and Legionnaires’ Disease in commercial buildings.
