Rapid on-site Legionella test solution

17 March 2019

Clearwater Technology has recently introduced the HC Rapid25, an on-site Legionella testing device that is said to be able to detect Legionella within 25 minutes instead of the more usually timescale which is typically 10-12 days. 

Going forward the HC Rapid25 resting solution will be used in all regular water tank inspections and Legionella risk assessments carried out by Clearwater which include a water tank as part of the assessment.

This will enable Clearwater engineers to detect the presence of Legionella in water systems on site as part of a routine visit, which has not traditionally been possible. This will reduce the time it traditionally takes to respond to an outbreak, enabling immediate action to be taken to control the risk. 

HC Rapid25 comes in a simple swab-test kit and has been validated for use in both hot and cold water systems, cooling towers, sinks, showers, water heaters, ice machines, hot water storage, misters, sprinklers, air washers and humidifiers.

Compliance is a major pain point for any business operating a water system that is susceptible to Legionella contamination. The new testing solution can help businesses to manage that responsibility and better governing compliance with official regulations and codes of practice.
