Lancaster University appointed engineers will require access to kitchens and bathrooms to test hot water temperatures. This brief survey will take approximately five minutes, and is to ensure that the hot water is maintained at the correct temperature to prevent any instances of legionella, which can lead to Legionnaire's Disease. This survey will be repeated once a month and is conducted in kitchens and bathrooms across academic and residential buildings.
Shower heads are also removed for cleaning - to prevent the build-up of materials and bacteria, as well as to ensure their effective operation - every three months. This will take longer - approximately five minutes per shower head and will take place in every shower across campus. Please notify the Facilities Helpdesk if you are unsure, of if your shower has not been tested.
