Hot water does not always have a satisfactory quality, which can often be attributed to bacterial growth in the hot water systems. Problems related to bacterial growth in hot water are described in this report. Conditions for bacterial growth in hot water tanks and distribution systems are described. Equipment for 'in situ' studies of biofilm in hot water systems was developed. The equipment was installed in a hot water system and enabled investigations of bacterial growth on surfaces and in the water phase. The results of these experiments are described in three papers in English attached to this report.
