Why a UV Light system.
In order to be confident your water is free of pathogenic microbes, you must destroy them through disinfection. Municipal water systems do an effective job of guarding against waterborne microbes by chemically disinfecting the water with chlorine.
Children, the elderly, and anyone with a lowered immune system are the most susceptible to waterborne bacteria.
The addition of an Ultra Violet Light to your household water treatment system further assures your family that their drinking water is pathogenic microbe free.
In Europe, UV disinfection has been utilized in water sanitation for 90 years. While no method is 100% effective, UV sanitization works as household water passes through the stainless steel disinfection chamber. Ultra Violet Light sterilizes anything that has nucleic acids including pathogens, Salmonella, Hepatitis, and E. coli.* UV disinfecting is equally effective against protozoan organisms such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium.
*UV Systems for home use are designed to work in conjunction with water conditioning and filtration units. Water must first be pre-treated to eliminate sediment and water hardness for optimum UV performance. Even when properly applied, Ultra Violet disinfection may not eliminate 100% of all waterborne pathogens. Therefore, UV light should only be utilized in addition to, not as replacement of, other drinking water purification routines.
