Ultraviolet water purification is effective at disinfecting bacteria from the water entering your home. Your water may contain biological contaminants such as bacteria and other unseen substances that are harmful to you and your family’s health. In this case, it is not enough to filter your water to get rid of these unwanted contaminants; the job requires more sophisticated water-cleaning technology – like an Ultraviolet Water Disinfection System, also known as a UV light system.
- Ultraviolet (UV) rays penetrate harmful pathogens and destroy microorganisms that cause illnesses and eliminate their ability to reproduce.
- UV light destroys 99.99% of harmful microorganisms without adding any chemicals.
- UV purification requires little energy and maintenance.
UV Destroys 99.99% of these Harmful Contaminants:
- Typhoid Fever
- Infectious Hepatitis
How Ultraviolet Water Disinfection Systems Use UV Light
The UV system uses ultraviolet light to rid your water of harmful substances, providing your household with microbiologically safe drinking water, 24 hours a day. Bacteria, viruses, E.coli, and chlorine-resistant microorganisms such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia are all eliminated with an Ultraviolet Water Disinfection System.
‘UV’ is a type of energy found in the electromagnetic spectrum that we cannot see, but we are exposed every time we are in the sun. These UV systems use a special lamp that emits UV light of a particular wavelength that have the ability to destroy micro-organisms functionality and their ability to reproduce.
It is important to protect you and your family from any water-borne bacterial diseases that are found in your drinking water. UV light is a natural, safe, and effective process that does not produce harmful chemicals in the water.
Ultraviolet energy increases the effectiveness of the process, making it possible to have the same amount of power as a larger UV dosage in a conveniently-sized system. Changing the lamp is made quick and easy with a convenient hold-open access door. These factors make a UV light cost-effective and an excellent choice for those who are economically minded.
