Description

Legionella is a gram-negative bacterium that can cause Legionnaires’ disease, a public health concern with a fatality rate ranging between 5% to 30% for those who become infected.  These bacteria infect the lungs, causing respiratory disease and pneumonia. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that approximately 8,000 to 18,000 Americans are hospitalized each year with Legionnaires’ Disease. Most species live in water, and sometimes they can go undetected in your drinking water.

  1. Coli is another type of bacteria that is found in feces and can sometimes enter drinking water supplies. When ingested they can cause intestinal tract infections, serious illness, and even death. Particularly vulnerable to E. Coli infections are newborns, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems.
