Young children are not a high risk for contracting Legionnaires’ Disease from shower aerosol (when they have a little accident and need to be cleaned!).

Depending on the age and health of the teachers/assistants, it may still be prudent to test the showers for legionella bacteria.

Most nurseries have on-going hygiene battles, particularly as faecal contamination of taps is common.  This bacteria can, in turn, be transferred easily, for example if a Nursery Assistant is helping a child to wash their hands and then touches a kitchen tap which is used for drinking water purposes, this could result in a child ingesting contaminated water.

Checking your drinking water quality is simple, quick and inexpensive – it includes a test for faecal matter!
