Abstract

Migration of organic compounds from PEX pipes used in water installations in buildings was investigated by batch set ups. Several compounds were identified and quantified. The organic compounds released to the water phase could support microbial growth and a few of the identified compounds decreased in concentration while the microbial number increased.
