Legionella is a threat to guests and staff alike. A temperature of 30 to 37° Celsius is ideal for legionella growth while it is reliably killed off at temperatures above 70° Celsius. People become infecting by inhaling aerosols containing bacteria. So showers, air conditioning systems and warm whirlpools are particular risk areas. Biofilms, which are present in all water pipes and tanks and are resistant to most disinfection processes, are the perfect breeding ground for these dangerous bacteria if the temperature is right.
