Automated Legionella Compliance

IoT Smart Building Solutions

Legionella risk assessments frequently call for taps to be monitored. In practice this means running them for two minutes and recording the temperature. This is a significant cost in man time and management. The records must be stored for years and the test regime will run indefinitely.

NFC has developed an automatic flushing and temperature testing unit, that can be dynamically controlled on the Genius smart building platform. This allows tests to be scheduled according to needs and all the reports generated automatically. The system removes human error from the testing, record keeping and reporting process. This significantly reduces the costs associated with maintaining the business’s legionella risk assessment and monitoring.


Depending on the outcome of your organisation’s legionella risk assessment, the Professional Services Unit or Facilities Management Team will layout site legionella tests as required.

The standard process requires the printing of documents separated into applicable areas and residencies, and distribution to relevant House Services Supervisors.

This then becomes a labour intensive request for both management and administration, with several procedures required to be in place to ensure compliance, with manual logging and reviewing of test returns.

The NFC Legionella Systems can automate this process. It can provide weekly reports by email or online and maintain the base data in the Genius platform for years, should additional copies be required.
