Water Hygiene

Water hygiene is the practice of supplementing already-treated municipal water with additional biocidal protection.

Because of its biocidal characteristics, CIO2 is ideal for water hygiene. CIO2 has consistently been shown to be the best molecule for eradicating the causative organism of Listeriosis and Legionnaires' Disease. It controls other bacteria such as Salmonella, Shigella, E. coli and other coliforms. It is effective against Giardia cysts, algae and amoebae, planktonic and sessile organisms.

CIO2 effectively destroys biofilm while providing a lasting residual throughout the distribution system to prevent its reformation.

In the UK, the Building Services Research and Information Association (BSRIA) has recommended CIO2 as the best available technology for control of Legionella in hot and cold water systems.
