UV residential water treatment system

Is UV water filter necessary?

Waterborne diseases are conditions caused by pathogenic micro-organisms that are in your water supply. Those diseases can be spread while bathing, washing, drinking water, or by eating food exposed to contaminated water.

According to the World Health Organization, waterborne diseases account for an estimated 3.6% of the total DALY (disability-adjusted life year) global burden of disease and cause about 1.5 million human deaths annually.

By installing a UV system at the point where water enters your home (a.k.a. point-of-entry systems) you can treat the water in your home by killing 99% of parasites, viral and bacterial impurities including those associated with water-borne illnesses such as Typhoid, Gastroenteritis, Hepatitis, Flu, and Cholera. As water enters your home, it moves through a stainless-steel reactor where it is exposed to a UV lamp.

Once the water has passed through the chamber, the treated water is distributed to every tap in your home.

It offers the most cost-effective way of protecting residential drinking water against biological contaminants when compared with the others water systems. Water UV treatment devices can be used for whole house, well water and surface disinfection.

UV disinfection is approved by the EPA and is an environmentally friendly disinfection method as it is a chemical-free process and creates no byproducts.

Faecal pollution and water quality

These microorganisms may be derived from sewage effluents, the recreational population using the water (from defecation and/or shedding), humans, livestock (cattle, sheep, etc.), industrial processes, farming activities, domestic animals (such as dogs) and wildlife
