  1. Das Problem der Legionellenkontamination in den Warmwassersystemen einer deutschen Grossstadt.

    Article - En allemand

    Traduction en anglais : Legionella in hot water systems in a german city.

    Since 1988 the Frankfurt City Health Department examined the hot water systems of all public indoor swimming pools, old age homes and hospitals, and made subsequent checks on the corrective measures introduced.

    In the 6 public indoor swimming pools the percentage of positive legionella findings, after corrective measures has dropped since 1988: at the central hot-water supply units from 47% to 23%, and at the peripheral tap connections from 66% to 22%. The number of negative samples rose from 43% to77%. Thus the favourable effect of the corrective measures is demonstrated.
