Schimmelpilze woher?

Im Trinkwasser können viele Arten von Schimmelpilzen (Sporen) in geringen Konzentrationen nachgewiesen werden. Ein Wachstum findet man extrem selten nur lokal bei erhöhten Nährstoffkonzentrationen durch Verwendung ungeeigneter Materialien (schwarze schleimige Pfropfen).

Notes to answerer
Asker: after talking to the customer, I chose the term "viscous stoppers"

  -> Correct is correct.

neutral  Noelle Crist-See: wouldn't "plugs" be more appropriate? It's something that is not wanted, and a stopper (and/or cork) are things manufactued specifically for the purpose. A plug, on the other hand, isn't always purposely present.
