Effects of Diverse Water Pipe Materials on Bacterial Communities and Water Quality in the Annular Reactor
Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology
To investigate the effects of pipe materials on biofilm accumulation and water quality, an annular reactor with the sample coupons of four pipe materials (steel, copper, stainless steel, and polyvinyl chloride) was operated under hydraulic conditions similar to a real plumbing system for 15 months. The bacterial concentrations were substantially increased in the steel and copper reactors with progression of corrosion, whereas those in stainless steel (STS) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) reactorsdoi:10.4014/jmb.1010.10012 fatcat:s3gxxidbunc4jd5it3aniilkym
