LCS can sample your water system for Legionella, TVC, EColi, Pseudomonas, etc

The samples are taken in accordance with BS 7592:2008 and processed by a UKAS accredited laboratory.


Sampling for Legionella in Cooling Towers is a well known requirement of ACOP L8 and HSG 274 Pt1.

What is less well known is that under HSG 274 Pt 2 Residential Care Homes and Nursing Homes now have a requirement to sample regularly for Legionella. 

The number of sample points is determined by the complexity of your water system, and full reference to the schematic diagrams of your water system and guidance would be made before advising on the number of samples required.

Please note that LCS does not advocate 'Composite' sampling, where samples from multiple outlets are taken in one bottle. These can give misleading results and fail to identify which outlets are affected. Composite sampling does not meet the requirements of HSG 274 Pt 2 or BS7592.
