Legionnaires disease, or Legeionellosis, is caused by "Legionella pneumophila, a ubiquitous aquatic organism that thrives in warm environments." It was identified after 34 Veterans died after attending an American Legion Convention in the Bellevue-Stratford Hotel in Philadelphia in 1976.
This is a type of pneumonia caused by bacteria. You usually get it by breathing in the mist from hot water that contains the bacteria. The mist may come from bathtubs, showers, hot tubs this bacteria can be found in water heaters where low HEAT temputures are present.
PREVENTION OF LEGIONELLA BACTERIA
Allows your water heater to be set at 130℉, for minimizing risk of Legionella bacteria in the tank.
Install a mixing valve for greater effective hot water storage, more hot water on demand.
Adjustable temperature control limits on the mixing valve to output of 120℉ to prevent risk of scalding.
Install a recirculation pump to supply instant uniform hot water at all faucets, ask us how? call us 916-344-4500
