HYDROGEN PEROXIDE AND AGENTS CONTAINING SILVER ARE NOT AN ALTERNATIVE
The biostream® products ZERO and asepticaPRO comply with DIN 2001-2:2009-04 (drinking water supply from small systems and non-stationary systems) and they are effective over the entire drinking water pH range. Hydrogen peroxide is not mentioned in the DIN as a disinfectant - also in the current UBA list of the Federal Environment Agency hydrogen peroxide is only mentioned as an oxidant - but not as a disinfectant.
Take a look at the label of the disinfectant you are currently using: If you find hydrogen peroxide as the active ingredient there, then according to the Federal Environment Agency you are NOT using a DISINFECTING AGENT but an oxidizing agent which, according to DVGW worksheet W291, must be dosed 25 X more strongly in order to achieve the same effectiveness as the active ingredient in the biostream® products.
And if your product also contains silver: Silver is also not mentioned as a disinfectant but only as a preservative. In addition, the following note on this can be found in the DIN: "Only in exceptional cases when storing drinking water without consumption for a longer period of time. Preservation does not replace any necessary disinfection of drinking water that is not in perfect condition."
