Water Temperature Thermometer for Legionella Monitoring & Control

Legionella Control Internationals range of professional water temperature thermometers and legionella testing kits have been carefully selected to help those with responsibility for the routine monitoring and control of Legionella bacteria in water systems. Our water thermometers allow users to easily and accurately check the temperature of hot and cold water systems, a key compliance indicator required as part of an ACOP L8 compliance programme.

Regularly testing and recording the temperatures of your hot and cold water systems is an essential task if you are to demonstrate and maintain compliance with the law.

Health & Safety Executive on Temperature Control of Water

The Health & Safety Executive in their legionella related Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) L8 state that the risk from exposure to legionella bacteria should normally be controlled by measures which do not allow the growth of legionella bacteria in water systems which include avoiding water temperatures between 20 oC and 45 oC, that favour the growth of legionella bacteria and other microorganisms.

What do Hot & Cold Water Temperatures need to Be?

To comply with current UK law concerning the control of legionella your hot and cold water temperatures need to be monitored monthly and should meet the following standards.

Cold Water Temperatures

The cold water temperature of your systems should be below 20 oC after running the cold water for up to two minutes, and should be measured and formally recorded on a monthly basis.

Hot Water Temperatures

The hot water temperature should be at least 50 oC within a minute of running the hot water (55 oC in healthcare), and should be measured and formally recorded on a monthly basis.

Hot Water Calorifier Temperatures

For water leaving and returning to a calorifier (water heater), the outgoing water should be at least 60 oC, and the return at least 50 oC (55 oC in healthcare), and should be measured and formally recorded on a monthly basis.

Water Temperature Thermometers

Regularly testing and recording the temperatures of your hot and cold water systems is an essential task if you are to demonstrate and maintain compliance with the law. Our water temperature thermometers and temperature meters will help you to achieve this.

Our range of professional legionella thermometers and water temperature meters has been carefully selected by our expert risk assessors for ease of use, reliability and accuracy.

Our thermometers are ideal for those with responsibility for the management and control of legionella risks including landlords, duty holders, those appointed responsible person, health and safety managers, property owners, building maintenance managers, service engineers, water treatment contractors and facilities managers.
