Clearwater Launches the World’s 'Quickest' On-Site Legionella Test

Posted: Thursday 6th December 2018

‘HC Rapid25’ reduces the Legionella risk in water systems by detecting the presence of the bacteria in just 25 minutes.

Clearwater Technology Ltd, the nationwide provider of water, air and hygiene management has launched HC Rapid25, an on-site Legionella testing device that will detect Legionella in just 25 minutes instead of the current period which is typically 10-12 days.

HC Rapid25 will be used in all regular water tank inspections and Legionella risk assessments carried out by Clearwater which include a water tank as part of the assessment.

By using HC Rapid25, Clearwater’s engineers will be able to detect the presence of Legionella in water systems on site as part of their routine visits, which has not traditionally been possible. This will significantly reduce the time it takes to respond to an outbreak, enabling Clearwater to take immediate action to control the risk for its customers. Clearwater’s engineers are experienced in providing remedial actions that restore safety to water systems where Legionella has been detected.

HC Rapid25 comes in a simple swab-test kit and has been validated for use in hot and cold water systems, cooling towers, decorative fountains, hot tubs, pools, sinks, showers, water heaters, fire suppression, ice machines, hot water storage, misters, sprinklers, air washers and humidifiers.

Compliance is a major pain point for any business operating a water system that is susceptible to Legionella contamination. Testing with HC Rapid25 will help businesses to manage that responsibility and increase the ease of governing compliance with official regulations and codes of practice including ACoP L8, ACoP HSG 274 and HTM 04-01.
