Berkey BioFilm Drops

Sale price $ 26.99 Regular price $ 30.00

Berkey BioFilm Drops have been scientifically engineered for use in the defense of biofilm formation in ceramic water filters, carbon (charcoal) filters, and water storage containers.

Use Berkey Biofilm Drops to extend the shelf life of water being stored for up to 5 years. Using Berkey Biofilm Drops eliminates the need to rotate your stored water every 6 months and keeps your water fresh tasting and odor free.

You can test for residual ions in the water being stored by using the test kit enclosed with the drops. Berkey Biofilm Drops are a scientifically engineered and patented Copper-Silver ion solution that is safe and user friendly.

With 10 + years of development and testing behind the technology, Berkey Biofilm Drops are designed as a pre-treatment to defend against microbiological growth and control of biofilm buildup in filters and water storage containers.

Berkey Biofilm Drops may be used with any type of filter media and work especially well with the Black Berkey purification elements.

Biofilm is a substance that forms readily in water filters, water distribution lines, water storage tanks, and any other aqueous environments. Biofilms form when bacteria begin to excrete a slimy, sticky substance that allows them to adhere to surfaces.

The biofilm mass can consist of multiple species of bacteria, and may include fungi, algae, and protozoa. Various scientific studies have demonstrated that up to 99% of bacteria do not actually live in the water; they live in the bio-film (a living environment and culture medium for bacteria), leaving only 1% of bacteria that actually live in the water.

It is only these free floating bacteria that are destroyed with traditional sanitizers such as chlorine, and bromine.

Berkey Biofilm Drops work by incorporating multiple barrier processes for inhibiting the growth and regrowth of biofilms, utilizing natural mineral ions of copper and silver in an ion technology along with other additives and complexants to synergistically aid in the control and precipitation of calcium, iron, minerals and scale where biofilm bacteria attach, form, feed and breed.

Berkey Biofilm Drops are simple to use and especially formulated for use in harvested rainwater containers, long term storage water containers, and for use in emergency preparedness and disaster relief.
