Maintaining the correct temperatures for the hot and cold water which is supplied to your home can minimise the risk of Legionella bacteria causing harm to your household.
Legionella bacteria is a greater risk where water is stored between 20 - 40°C. The hot water in your home should be running at 50°C, and the cold water should not be above 20°C.
