Advanced Testing For Better Biofilm Control In Distribution Systems


Excessive amounts of diverse microorganisms, also known as biofilm, significantly impact water quality and promote corrosion in distribution systems. The fastest way for biofilm to proliferate is through ineffective management. However, taking control isn’t as simple as adding plenty of disinfectant to the water, and traditional testing involves sending samples to a lab and waiting days. In this Water Talk interview, Dave Tracey, director of strategic sales channels for LuminUltra, discusses innovative biological monitoring technologies that simplify testing so it can be done in the field with immediate results.
