Legionnaires’ disease is a very serious and sometimes fatal form of pneumonia caused by inhaling airborne water droplets, such as from a tap or shower which has been contaminated by legionella bacteria. The bacteria are usually caused by poor temperature control within a water system or stagnant water in pipes that are used infrequently, causing the germs to grow.
