Cooling water dip slide tests

It is important to test the 'general health' of cooling water. You can do this using our BTM2 (Nutrient and Malt Extract Agar) dipslides . These slides test for total count bacteria and yeasts and moulds. Although these displides will not test for legionella specifically, they will indicate if you have large bacterial growth which could potentially make the water a breeding ground for legionella or it could indeed contain the bacteria. As detailed in our article 'Dipslides for legionella testing

"If bacteria is present, we suggest that you conduct further tests to see if Legionella is one of the organisms in the system. Even if legionella is not identified, the presence of other organisms can support legionella by producing the organic nutrients that it needs to thrive.''

Regular dipslide tests are recommended (weekly) as well as routine quarterly legionella lab tests.
