How to Avoid Legionnaires’ Disease from a Hot Tub
Every hot tub owner has heard about the risks of Legionnaires’ disease. This disease can be serious if not treated immediately. Many find this prospect rather scary and often close their hot tubs.
First, let’s take a look at what this disease is and why the bacteria that causes it like hot tubs so much.
What is Legionnaires’ Disease
Legionnaires’ disease is a type of severe pneumonia caused by a germ known as Legionella. This disease has been known to cause death in patients but can’t be transferred person to person. In most cases people contract this disease by inhaling the bacteria.
Each year between 8,000 – 18,000 people in the United States contract the disease. In most cases the disease can easily be treated with antibiotics, but if left untreated it can be fatal and even after successful treatment some patients continue to suffer from complications of the disease.
While the disease can infect virtually anyone, certain groups of people are more likely to contract it. They include:
- People Over the Age of 50
- People with Weakened Immune Systems
- Individuals Suffering from Chronic Lung Disease
Legionella is found naturally in water, and it especially loves warm water. Because this, a hot tub can often be the perfect breeding ground for this bacteria.
Legionnaires’ and Hot Tubs
Because the bacteria that causes Legionnaires’ disease loves hot water, hot tubs everywhere are the perfect breeding ground for these pesky microscopic germs. Dirty hot tubs can quickly become contaminated with the bacteria, and because it is more difficult to maintain proper disinfectant levels in the warm water of a hot tub, it can easily happen to almost any hot tub owner.
The disease can be transmitted from person to person, and you can get it by being in the hot tub. In most cases, the way you contract the disease is by inhaling the steam while you are soaking in your hot tub. This aerosolizes the bacteria and makes it very easy for it to make its way into your lungs infecting them with the disease.
