# Water in the ultrasonication bath

Why something jelly forms in the water if it is kept in in a ultrasonication bath for long periods? When water is exposed to ultrasonication for say a month, some jelly substances form in the ultrasonicator bath. is this something related to some bioorganism growth?

To see these jelly flakes in an ultrasound bath is a normal thing -- referring to it happens regardless if the water was tap-water or deionized water, a just a matter of time''. Perhaps this occurs faster in the former, than in the later, especially if the bath is used to clean glassware. But it equally happens with glassware judged as clean (by eye) for example if the bath is deployed to initiate / support a reaction inside a reaction flask. Ultrasound-assisted generation of Grignard reagents is one example.
