How does UV work?
UV water disinfection is a natural process which does
not add any chemicals into your water, nor alter the
water chemistry. Ultraviolet light energy inactivates
harmful microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses
by disrupting the DNA, effectively preventing them
from multiplying and causing illness. The pathogens
are destroyed in the time water passes through the
disinfection chamber. E-coli, Cryptosporidium, and
Giardia lamblia (Beaver Fever) are examples of
waterborne microorganisms that cause numerous
gastrointestinal illnesses which are easily controlled
with UV disinfection.
