A process based on a biofilm reactor system was developed to test the effectiveness of disinfection agents used to treat biofilms on the surfaces of the drinking water supply system. Topics discussed include the reactor system used to grow biofilms in drinking water (the central component of the system is a rotating piston reactor that generates biofilms), effectivity of H2O2 on drinking water biofilms, and relevance of the test procedure for practical applications.
