HuwaSan TR50 Silver Stabilised Hydrogen Peroxide

HuwaSan TR50 is a commercial water disinfectant and biocide designed for shock disinfection or constant dosing. HuwaSan TR50 kills legionella bacteria and in addition removes biofilm. It is safer to use than chlorine as the disinfection breakdown products are oxygen and water. Independent testing shows that HuwaSan TR50 provides a very wide spectrum of biocidal activity against bacteria, viruses, spores, fungi, amoebae (such as amoeba acanthus which can act as a host to legionella bacteria) and algae.

MC1+ Protector

Formulated to prevent wear and tear and the resulting debris, MC1+ stops magnetite and other deposits forming. As it does this, it protects the central heating, keeping the boiler working efficiently and helping to ensure the system lasts for longer.

AS Shower chrome

AS Shower chrome

Legionnaires‘ disease is usually spread by the breathing in of water vapour containing Legionella bacteria which is then deposited on the lungs. The bacteria thrives in water temperatures between 25 and 45°C and so showers by their very nature create an ideal environment for the bacteria to spread. The AS SHOWER chrome filter provides reliable and immediate protection against Legionella, removing bacteria at the point of use, allowing users to shower safely.
