VelaLabs offers testing on legionella in water

Testing water quality is essential after 6 months lockdown

April 2021: Due to the Corona measures hotels and accommodation establishments were closed over the last 6 months, in some areas even longer. Rooms, gyms, spas were not used and therefore water outlets were not rinsed regularly.


Water tests are essential in safety concepts

As a result, both in hot and cold water, germ reproduction occurs, especially with Legionella and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Both are bacteria that can cause severe pneumonia when aerosols are inhaled. Pseudomonas aeruginosa can also lead to diarrhoea when drinking.


VelaLabs will test your water – for a joyful stay of your guests

As an owner or manager of a hotel, gym or any other facility which was closed over the last months, you need to prepare carefully for reopening. We recommend independent water testing with a minimum of 5 samples, though sample size will be determined by the size and infrastructure of your facility.

VelaLabs can analyse your water on contamination with Legionella or Pseudomonas aeruginosa. We would advise you on the necessary number of samples, organise taking samples from your water cycle, and deliver an accredited analysis report according to ISO regulations.
