Did you know, when it comes to the cleaning and de-scaling of showerheads, hoses and thermostatic mixer valves, SafeSol’s DD1 Disinfectant and Descaler is much better for legionella control than other shower head cleaners. Here’s why …
1. SafeSol’s DD1 is an amazing biofilm remover. No other showerhead cleaners remove biofilm.
DD1 will penetrate and remove system biofilms which include legionella and pseudomonas bacteria as it contains silver stabilised hydrogen peroxide. Whereas disinfection with chlorine-based products is a two-stage process. Chlorine can’t be mixed with acid based products and so the disinfecting and descaling become two separate jobs. Disinfecting with chlorine can only remove the top layer of biofilm.
2. SafeSol’s DD1 is kind to showerheads and hose. Other showerhead cleaners are not.
The level of silver stabilised hydrogen peroxide and mineral acid in the DD1 will remove biofilm and scale but it will not cause corrosion to materials at dose rates. Other shower head cleaners have been shown to cause system corrosion where legionella bacteria can breed.
3. SafeSol’s DD1 is unique in that the product combines effective scale and biofilm removal in one product. Others do not.
Our main competitors are chlorine based, corrosive organic acid cleaners that have similar biofilm removal efficacy to chlorine, or two stage cleaners that take much longer to apply.
4. SafeSol’s DD1 is safe for operators to use. Other shower head cleaners are not.
SafeSol’s DD1 is simple and easy to use with minimal PPE (Gloves and goggles). Whereas other shower head cleaners can irritate and burn eyes and skin.
5. SafeSol’s DD1 can save time on showerhead cleaning.
DD1 is a single product that can clean and descale showerheads, hoses and TMVs. Other processes are a two-step processes that involves firstly disinfecting the showerheads then separately descaling them taking up more time and resources.
6. SafeSol’s DD1 claims to completely clean showerheads is backed by evidential proof. Others fail to provide sufficient evidence.
Laboratory tests have confirmed that DD1 will completely remove and kill Legionella and Pseudomonas based biofilms as well as completely removing hardness salts. Biofouling of showerheads is complex comprising microbiological, scale, corrosion products and other suspended solids. Biofilm can bind all these materials together. Removal of Biofilm is essential for clean showerheads.
7. SafeSol’s DD1 is more environmentally friendly. Other shower head cleaners are less environmentally acceptable.
SafeSol’s DD1 is based on silver stabilised hydrogen peroxide with added mineral acid. The hydrogen peroxide will break down to oxygen and water and the very low level of mineral acid will have minimal effect on the environment. Other shower cleaner are less environmentally friendly.
8. SafeSol’s DD1 is more effective than other showerhead cleaners and descalers.
The silver stabilised hydrogen peroxide in SafeSol’s DD1 will remove legionella and pseudomonas based biofilms, kill water borne bacteria while the mineral acid will gentle remove the calcium carbonate scale leaving showerheads, hoses and thermostatic mixer valves extremely clean, descaled and bacteria free. It also contains a surfactant which improves the spreadability and penetration of the other components. Other showerhead cleaners are more harsh to systems and will only kill water borne bacteria and remove scale.
9. SafeSol’s DD1 is a modern showerhead clean and descaler. Acid based descaling chemicals are old technology.
DD1 has been researched and developed over the past 20 years. It has been extensively tested in the lab and in the field. It is a showerhead cleaner and descaler that will remove biofilm and gentle remove scale without damage to shower plastic and metal. Acid based cleaners can be corrosion to system metals and cause plastics to go brittle.
10. SafeSol’s DD1 is kind to metals and seals. Other showerhead cleaners and descalers can cause system corrosion and damage seals.
Water disinfection usually gets carried out at 1000ppm peroxide. Levels up to 3% peroxide will not corrode copper, stainless steel, or other metals. Other showerhead cleaners and descalers can cause corrosion to system metals and perish system seals. We have reports that other showerhead cleaners rather than preventing legionella have causes system metals to corrode and created a food source where legionella bacteria can breed.

Excellent service ..great communication from company
Spoke to Vicky at Safesol, she was very knowledgeable. I placed the order and paid online and the items arrived within the timescale advised. Simple and efficient.
Mixed with baking soda and made a paste to freshen up bathroom grouting. Now have some in a spray bottle as a safe multipurpose cleaner.
Last year used Grow Up on one side of my garden - just watered the other side. The difference was plain to see. The flowers and bedding plants that had received 'Grow Up' were significantly bigger and seemed healthier than those that hadn't. I shall certainly be using it this year on all of my garden. Fantastic product with impressive results.
We use this product about 10 times a day as we have a small disabled mostly incontinent dog. If she pees on the mat, a mop with kitchen roll and a squirt of SweetPee saves us having to wash the mats so frequently as it removes the smell. Have used it for just over 2 years now and its brilliant.
Have paid a lot out and no matter what I did the over riding smell was urine. Not any more.whole house smells fresh.amaysing bottled miracle. V.vardy.
Always great service and comprehensive support from the team at Safesol.
Simply, does what it says on the tin. excellent product, no hesitation in recommending.
