Bio-Fouling, Bio-Contamination…the Resistance to Disinfection. Why?

“Why?” is the right question apparently, given the always same issue in water filtration process. Even disinfectant substances, like sodium hypochlorite can fail in solving the Bio-contamination or the Bio-fouling issue, which is coming as a surprise for many Water Treatment experts. Even worse, the absence of clear explanations leads to “beliefs” spread and further contributes to role a dark snow ball. “Why?” is the right question apparently, given the always same issue in water filtration process?

-FIRST, microbes and microbial-life is -everywhere-. Having a zero bio-presence on a surface is very unlikely and almost impossible to achieve. And if achieved it is only temporary.

-SECOND, living cells are smart. It is scientifically… (find out more).
