How Does BioFilm Buster Pro Work?

What causes irrigation line clogs?

A biofilm clog is the slimy layer made by bacteria after they attach to a surface and grow. Irrigation lines are cool and damp which are perfect conditions for biofilms and other clogs to form. When water mixed with fertilizer runs through an irrigation line, this mixture carries small nutrient particles and microbes that settle when the system is turned off. The microbes then begin to attach to the irrigation line, with the fertilizer nutrients acting as food to these microbes so they will begin to grow. Every time the irrigation line is used, this process repeats itself, until eventually the microbes form a biofilm clog large enough to block the line or emitters.

How does BioFilm Buster Pro work?

Biofilm clogs are resistant to most chemical treatments, making them difficult to remove and quick to re-form after treatment. This resistance to chemical treatment is due to the thick and sludgy consistency of biofilm clogs, making them difficult for chemicals to penetrate. This limits chemical treatments to the surface of the biofilm only. BioFilm Buster Pro’s bio-enzymes are the solution to this problem, actively digesting all biofilm layers and restoring your system to 100% capacity.

Advantages of using BioFilm Buster Pro over chemical treatments

Unlike harsh chemical treatments, BioFilm Buster Pro won’t damage your plants or soil, or any part of your irrigation system. You also will have no need to flush your system after treatment as extended exposure is completely harmless.

BioFilm Buster Pro and Organic Fertilizers

Organic fertilizers are especially prone to creating irrigation system biofilm clogs. This is because the all-natural ingredients in organic fertilizers contain a lot of organic solids and microbes that are perfect for biofilm creation. Regular treatment with BioFilm Buster Pro will prevent these clogs before they form, keeping your irrigation lines, reservoir, and the rest of your system clean.
