Did you know: UV systems can destroy 99.99% of harmful microorganisms without adding chemicals or changing your water’s taste or odor?! It is one of the four methods of disinfection approved by the United States FDA. UV has proven to be a quick, reliable and cost effective method of disinfecting water for both point of use and point of entry.
Ultraviolet (UV) is a safe, clean, easy-to-maintain method of assuring that water is free of bacteria. UV Water Purification uses Ultraviolet light, just like sunlight, to kill micro-organisms that may be in the water. It is a proven technology that has no significant drawbacks. In some applications, its initial cost is a bit more than chlorination, but because of its low operating cost, it quickly pays for itself. It is environmentally friendly and essentially trouble-free. Most ultraviolet water treatment systems require only an annual change of lamp – as simple as changing a light bulb – and a periodic change of the filter cartridge.
There are some very important reasons why both homeowners and municipalities are choosing UV technology to treat their water.
Highly effective: For over 25 years, UV technology has been trusted as a safe, cost-effective way to purify water and eliminate harmful microorganisms. It is a proven EPA endorsed technology that is currently being used by thousands of cities, bottled water manufacturers and homeowners around the world.
- Chemical free: UV provides water purification without the addition of harmful chemicals such as chlorine. It also avoids the potential of generating harmful chemical disinfection by products. Recent EPA guidelines are forcing cities across the United States to reduce or eliminate the use of chlorine for exactly this reason.
- Taste & odor free: UV does not change the taste, odor or color of the water.
- More effective than chlorine: Unlike chlorine, UV systems are effective against both Cryptosporidium and Giardia.
- Compact and easy to maintain: UV systems are capable of treating a single faucet or an entire home in a minimal amount of space with the only maintenance being an annual lamp and filter replacements.
