There are over 50 species of Legionella which is the cause of the deadly Legionnaires' disease, one of the fatal forms of pneumonia. Although Legionella is widespread in natural water sources such as lakes, rivers, it can also live in man-made systems such as water storage units, bathrooms and kitchens posing a great health hazard if it goes undetected.
