Water quality is diminished during its travel from the treatment plant to the customer. Biofilm, corrosion, scale, metal leaching, and the formation of Disinfectant By-Products (DBPs) represent significant challenges to maintaining clean and healthy water. Chlorine, pH balance, softening, and phosphate-based corrosion inhibitors are not sufficient to protect both infrastructure and public health.
