The bio-film is an organic matrix formed by microbial activity associated with organic and inorganic materials. These materials are extra cellular polymeric substances, such as exopolysaccharides, and protein, growing on the surfaces of all pipes, plant and tanks containing water, whether potable or process based (Fig. A). The bio-film gives protection and favourable conditions for colonies of micro-organisms, including bacteria, viruses, protozoa and fungi. Bio-film, which supports high numbers of bacterial species that supplement the growth of Legionlla Pneumophila, would expect to contain high numbers of pathogen. Micro-organisms will continue to grow and survive as long as the bio-film is present.
            Bio-film is an excellent source for obnoxious odour.
Chlorination and ozonation are not capable of eradicating bio-film, especially in big piping systems because of its short residual disinfections period and its limited disinfections action.

Free Radical Technology is capable of eradicating bio-film due to its high disinfections power that is over 4000 times stronger than chlorination. Its long residual disinfections period will last for at least six months.
