Assessing resistance to biofilm growth in plumbing pipe is one of the most important specification considerations an engineer can make. That resistance is essential to keeping potable water safe and free of bacterial contaminants that can lead to serious health problems.
View the infographic for background on the relationship of biofilm growth to the piping material itself, including:
