    Most likely bacterial slime, it comes in pink too!

    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    i have used every kind of cleaner from supply stores in our area , type of cleaner does not seem to matter , uv lights focused directly on coil will kill growth ,but only on the side the light is on,
