What is bio-film? Bio-film is any group of bacteria and other micro-organisms that stick themselves to a surface which is in regular contact with water. These micro-organisms will cover themselves in a protective layer of slime that is resistant to disinfectants (like chlorine or bromine). Bio-film can harbor harmful bacteria like Legionella (Legionnaire's Disease), Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, and E-Coli. Bio-films thrives in dark, warm (>90°F), water rich environments.
