What is Biofilm and How to Eliminate It

Biofilm is a bacteria film, and is a mixture of different micro-organisms that are held together and protected by glue-like materials (carbohydrates).
It is this glue-like material that micro-organisms secrete that allows them to attach themselves to surfaces.

Is Biofilm a problem in pools and spas?

Biofilm can grow in a pool or spa, in skimmer baskets and also in filters. This bacteria thrives in areas that are warm and damp.
Unfortunately one of the biggest issues with Biofilms is that it can become resistant to chlorine. This can then see your pool water quality will decline. You may notice your water starts to turn cloudy, it may also have a very strong odor to it

How do I remove Biofilm from my pool?

A Biofilm is self-perpetuating and difficult to remove. Worst of all, biofilm love virtually any surface, especially wet or damp. But beware, even after drying out, the biofilm will not necessarily be dead but simply dormant.

The growth of biofilms is like a coral reef, the biofilm gets bigger and tougher. Super colonies of biofilm are actually absorbing certain chemicals that were meant to destroy them.

Biofilms are everywhere. Pools, spas, bathrooms, kitchens, on your teeth (plaque is a biofilm), wherever there is a surface that can be damp.

What to do? Resistant to chlorine or bromine. Bonds with biguanides. Ionizers have no effect. You have to remove it. But how?
