The use of polymer in pre-treatment steps to MF/UF membrane systems is typically avoided by engineers and membrane suppliers due to concerns of irreversible membrane fouling. This study documents the adverse impacts associated with polymer in the MF feed water. Investigation showed that MF modules retained solids associated with the polymer and resulted in membrane damage
