How Ultraviolet Light Removes Bacteria in Your Water

Ultraviolet Light to clean my water?

Drinking water contaminated with bacteria can cause gastrointestinal issues, such as diarrhea, vomiting, cramps, and nausea. Many types of bacteria can be found in your water system. The most dangerous form of bacteria is fecal coliform or E. coli, resulting when water is contaminated with fecal material. 

The problem with having bacteria in your water system is that it usually goes unnoticed until it is too late. Although minerals in your water may cause an unpleasant taste or damage your pipes, bacteria may cause serious health issues.

How does Ultraviolet Light work?

An Ultraviolet Light system continuously monitors the UV bulb and allows water to enter as long as it functions at its average level. The water moves down through the tank and enters a stainless steel exposure chamber containing the UV bulb. The water is then forced to pass near the UV bulb, and this causes the bacteria to be destroyed immediately. After the water moves up to the top of the stainless steel exposure chamber and passes from the unit, it is ready for drinking.
