Once the biofilm is present, it turns out to be very difficult to remove. Even after a thorough cleaning, the biofilm can reoccur in just a few days. So the base of the incoming water must be in order. Any pollution that is not brought in, you do not need to remove.
It is also wise to keep the drinking water system up to date with a product that both cleans and disinfects to prevent biofilm growth. If the basis is right, a very low maintenance dosage will be sufficient.
The consequences of bad drinking water depend on the parameters mentioned above for each situation. It can lead to severe problems. In general, it comes down to this:
Increased disease pressure
Reduced water and feed intake and therefore decreased performance
To prevent these problems from happening, it is important to check your water quality regularly. There are several ways to test this. The advice is to first look at the sensory aspects. If these are okay, you can start testing it further based on the parameters. To determine the exact value, we advise having a thorough examination performed by a specialized company.
