You buy insurance to protect your car and your home. Doesn’t your family deserve the same protection when it comes to your water? Today, more than ever, people are concerned about the water they consume. With all the press about outbreaks of waterborne illnesses, boil water advisories, and water infrastructure issues, keeping safe from waterborne illnesses is top of mind – and so it should be.
The challenge is that the quality of your drinking water can change from day-to-day, season to season. Even if your tap water is safe today, contaminants can infiltrate wells and aquifers, and aging infrastructure can lead to an increased risk of contamination. In fact, boil water advisories are becoming more and more common, even in large cities. It’s not surprising you’re concerned. So why not start disinfecting the water coming into your home so that every tap gives protected treated water?
UV water disinfection is a safe, chemical-free way to treat water. Even chlorine-resistant microorganisms are made harmless through UV exposure. Lack of chemicals means no harmful chemical byproducts are going back into the environment, and the taste of your water is not affected in any way. Our UV systems install easily into existing water lines and provide clean, safe water.
How UV Works.
Water is disinfected as it runs through a stainless steel chamber containing a UV lamp. As water flows past the lamp, illness-causing microorganisms receive a lethal dose of UV light that attacks their DNA and eliminates their ability to reproduce. Harmful bacteria, viruses and cysts are inactivated, leaving the water safe!
By installing a UV system, you can be confident you’re protected from chlorine-resistant microorganisms, such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia. All water systems can be vulnerable to these microbes given the right conditions. Cryptosporidium is resistant to chlorine and has become a common cause of waterborne disease everywhere.
