Ultraviolet Water Filters for Safe Drinking Water
Bacteria in water have known to cause serious health problems. Even a single bacteria in your drinking water can make you sick.
The quality of drinking water is kept under control by Irish Water, but this does not avoid the risk of leaks and pollutants along the supply pipelines that are often too old. To be sure of the quality of the water coming into our houses, a simple solution is installing an ultraviolet water filter.
With the installation of a UV disinfection system, you no longer have to be worried about waterborne pathogenic organisms causing illness. UV sterilizers kill bacteria, viruses and other micro-organisms by preventing them from reproducing.
The result? Safe drinking water.
Why Choose UV Light Sterilizer?
When a UV light bulb is connected to your home’s water supply, every drop of water than enters your home can’t help but pass through it. This is essential when we’re talking about pathogens, which are not visible to human eye and can slip through even the finest screening system.
Ultraviolet water treatment exposes germs to a UV wavelength that is harmful to humans but is deadly to microorganisms lurking in your water. These UV light bulbs render bacteria, viruses, and other harmful parasites unable to replicate by damaging their DNA. So you don’t have to ever worry about drinking water making your family sick.
Benefits of UV Water Filters
While disinfecting powers of UV water filter can benefit anyone, there are certain populations who are especially likely to have bacteria compromise their water.
Well water generally has the highest risk for carrying or containing protozoa like giardia & E.Coli because of the availability for groundwater contamination.
Recipients of boil water notice and those with weak immune systems can benefit tremendously from UV light sterilizers.
The benefits of UV light bulbs include, but not limited to:
- Disinfects without chemicals. Ultraviolet wavelength doesn’t leave by-products in water like chemical disinfectants.
- Adds no tastes or odours. UV disinfection does not chemically alter the water in any way, shape, or form.
- Easy to maintain. An annual UV lamp change is the most frequent maintenance need.
- No water wasted. The UV treatment doesn’t waste any water in the process.
- Cost-effective. Comes out on top in regards to cost and labour.
