Danger from drinking water makers
How can water sparklers become a hazard? What role do bacteria and germs play there?Many people appreciate the refreshing "fizzy" taste.

With the biostream® concentrates based on chlorine dioxide, you now have the possibility to reliably disinfect drinking water tanks, drinking water-carrying pipes and drinking water bubbler bottles. Use the active ingredient of the waterworks without expensive technical expenditure.
The active ingredient in biostream® products (chlorine dioxide) has been used to disinfect drinking water in waterworks since the mid-1950s. Complex and expensive equipment is used there for its production, which is now no longer necessary. Simply produce the effective chlorine dioxide yourself and benefit from the perfect effectiveness against E.Coli, Pseudomonads and Legionella!

Our products are also suitable for the disinfection of drinking water in times of crisis, for emergency preparedness in case of blackout, power failure and other catastrophic events.
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."
