Biofilm: The Back Story Any plumbing professional knows that there is more going on inside those pipes than many people realise. But while we may assume that there is little chance of biofilm building up inside a new water system any time soon, in some wet environments, biofilm can be formed and colonised by bacteria in just a few hours. This can happen inside water distribution systems, too. So it’s important to know what’s happening inside those pipes, and the risks involved.
