Low concentrations of the bacteria that cause Legionnaires’ disease are normally found in drinking water tanks. The population can increase dramatically when in the right conditions (warm water temperature of between 32 and 54ºC, in addition to the presence of nutrients). If contaminated water droplets are inhaled by susceptible individuals (whose defences are low), they can contract the disease.

The most common sources of infection are cooling towers and shower heads.
