Feb. 17, 2013 - PRLog -- Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of another online video to help educate the public about issues that may impact their health.  Their latest educational video discusses Legionnaires’ disease and hot tubs as a potential source of Legionella bacteria.

Legionella is a type of bacteria that can cause a form of pneumonia known as Legionnaires’ disease. Each year, between 8,000 and 18,000 people in the United States are hospitalized with Legionnaires’ disease.  People get Legionnaires' disease when they breathe in a mist or vapor that has been contaminated with the bacteria.  

“Legionella is naturally found in water, especially warm water,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video.  “Hot tubs that are not cleaned and disinfected properly can become contaminated with the bacteria. Maintaining the right disinfectant and pH levels in hot tubs is essential to protect people from the organism. We hope this video helps to educate people about Legionella, Legionnaires’ disease and places such as hot tubs where people can be exposed to the deadly bacteria.”
