Biofilm poses a threat to most hard water systems, across industrial, agricultural and even domestic sectors. Forming in moist conditions, water sources and infrastructure are common and easy places for biofilm to thrive. Without proper water conditioning, biofilm can be hazardous to human, livestock, and crop health. With a sustainable and preventative design, Hydrosmart provides effective biofilm treatment that minimises environmental harm whilst safeguarding your waterways.
What is Biofilm?
When it comes to combatting biofilm, understanding its composition and formation helps divulge effective treatment methods. Made up of several germs and strains of bacteria, such as salmonella or E. coli, biofilm can form in patches on pipe surfaces and water stores. Once present in waterways, it can cause many operational and water quality issues across industrial, agricultural, and domestic sectors. Swimming pools, irrigation infrastructure and even drinking water supplies are particularly at risk due to their moist, higher-temperature environments. Once bacteria have found an ideal environment they will continue to grow and, if left untreated, can cause several problems.
The Hydrosmart Solution
Biofilm treatment within hard water systems should be sustainable, preventative and minimalist. With a Hydrosmart water conditioner, your hard water systems are protected against an increase in biofilm formation, with a scientifically backed method. To remove biofilm, Hydrosmart regulates the water’s mineral content, thus reducing the rate at which algae grows and the subsequent mass accumulation of biofilm. Hydrosmart is the smart choice when dealing with biofilm removal; say goodbye to the need for harsh chemicals and removal methods that ultimately worsen the health of your hard water systems. Whilst these methods can often provide an instant solution, they cause long-term adverse effects on the usage of your water, whether that be irrigation, livestock or drinking water supplies. Hydrosmart effectively and progressively targets the root cause to remove biofilm, working smarter to safeguard your hard water systems.
