Automated Legionella Testing
Save time and money with automated flushing and water temperature monitoring
As an employer or anyone in control of business or residential premises, it’s your responsibility to take the right precautions to reduce the risks of exposure to Legionella.
Knowing the temperature of the water coming out of the taps weekly (or even daily) is a key requirement, along with flushing the water at different parts of the system to ensure accurate testing. In practice, this traditionally means running all taps in the building for two minutes, recording the temperature, keeping these records for years and running this test regime indefinitely—a significant cost in resources, administration and management.

Using the Orion Data Network, Smarter Technologies has developed an automatic Legionella testing unit that carries out remote flushing and temperature testing, dynamically controlled on a bespoke dashboard.
This first-of-its-kind technology allows you to schedule automated Legionella testing according to your needs. All reports are generated automatically.
The system removes human error from the testing, record keeping and reporting process, significantly reducing the costs associated with maintaining your business; Legionella risk assessment and monitoring.

How it works?
Smarter Technologies’ compact automated Legionella testing unit is available in two formats:
- Smaller unit for one 15mm copper pipe
- Dual unit for two pipes
Both are designed to fit any sink, shower or designated sentinel tap using simple, ready-to-install industry standard fittings.
The system reports in every fifteen minutes and does a flush test once or more a week, depending on the schedule set (the testing times and flushing schedule can be controlled from the secure, cloud-based application). It is battery-powered, with a long-lasting battery pack that is easy to change.
If any temperatures within the system are not correct, alerts are sent out by email to the relevant people. The server also automatically monitors the individual units and alerts on their battery status and communications quality.
