Legionella Risk Assessment in Newhaven

What is Legionella?

Legionella is found in water and is a type of bacteria which can be severely dangerous. Legionella can cause three potentially fatal diseases which together are named 'Legionellosis'. The three diseases are 'pontiac fever', 'lochgoilhead fever' and worst of all, 'legionnaires' disease' which causes symptoms of pneumonia. This diseases can be contracted if you inhale legionella bacteria which comes from tiny droplets of water often found in aerosol or particles which are left once water has evaporated.

We can provide a comprehensive assessment of the water in your property, whether it is a home, rental property, a school an office, a doctors surgery or a nursing home. This test must be carried out on any premises where water is stored! This ensures you and your co-habitants or colleagues are fully protected from the three fatal diseases legionella can cause.

Our Testimonials

I wish to thank Forward Plumbing Services for the work your company carried out replacing our central heating boiler. The work was done with minimum disturbance. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family. Kind Regards,

Mr Buckwell | Boiler Replacement
Forward Plumbing Services were recommended to us and after seeking a few other quotes we decided to employ them to replace our boiler and a number of radiators in our new home.
They were punctual and worked extremely hard. The job was completed as planned and they were clean and tidy throughout. I wouldn't hesitate in using them again or recommending them to others looking for a local, reliable company.

Mrs Theobald | Boiler & Radiator Replacement
We would like to thank Forward Plumbing Services for a fantastic job. A very old water tank in our loft leaked causing a flood. Joe Responded quickly to stop the leak and replaced the tanks. After decorative insurance repairs, Joe and Alan updated all radiators in the house and flushed the system. We found them to be very polite. We are happy with the standard of work and would highly recommend Forward Plumbing Services.
