Anti-legionella recommendations (European standard CEN/TR 16355) Information Legionella is a small bacterium, of stick-like form, and is found naturally in fresh water. Legionnaire's disease is a serious pulmonary infection caused by inhalation of the Legionella pneumophilia bacterium and other species of Legionella. The bacterium is frequently to be found in the plumbing of houses, hotels and water used in A/C and air cooling systems. The most effective measure against infection is to prevent the bacterium proliferating in water circuits. European standard CEN/TR 16355 provides guidelines for preventing the proliferation of Legionella in drinking water systems, without substituting applicable local legislation. General recommendations “Conditions favourable to the proliferation of Legionella”. The following conditions are favourable to the proliferation of Legionella: • Water temperature in the range 25 - 50 °C. To reduce the proliferation of Legionella, the water temperature be kept with these limits to prevent them growing or reduce their growth to a minimum. If this is not possible, the drinking water system must be sanitised thermally; • Stagnant water. To prevent water stagnating for a long time, the drinking water system must be flushed or made to run abundantly at least once a week; • Nutrients, biofilms and sediment in the circuit, including boilers, etc. Sediment may promote the proliferation of Legionella and should be regularly eliminated from water storage devices, boilers and expansion/holding tanks (for instance, once a year). As regards storage heater like the present, if: 1) the appliance is switched off for several months at a time or 2) the water temperature is kept constant in the range 25 - 50°C, the Legionella bacterium may grow inside the tank. If such circumstances, to reduce the proliferation of the bacterium, one must run a thermal sanitisation cycle. This cycle is suited to use in domestic hot water systems and complies with the guidelines for the prevention of Legionella given in Table 2 of standard CEN/TR 16355 (see below).

However, the thermal disinfection cycle does not kill all Legionella bacteria in the storage tank. It follows that if the water temperature setting is less than 55°C, the Legionella bacterium infection may reoccur. Caution: the water temperature in the tank can cause immediate serious burns. Children, disabled persons and the aged are particularly at risk of burns. Check the water temperature before taking a bath or shower. 7
