Independent testing shows that Huwa-San TR-50 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. Use disinfectants safely. Always read the label and product information before use.

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.
