If you have a private water supply, it is important to remember that you are responsible for ensuring your waters safety. Well water may contain harmful bacteria, viruses or cysts, which can be dangerous to you, your family, pets and livestock.
Ultraviolet (UV) Sterilizers are the best way to disinfect your private water supply for your home, cottage or farm. They come in a range of sizes and can be used to disinfect water for a single tap or for an entire property.
Our UV Sterilizers are safe to use, clean, and simple to install. They require very little energy and minimal maintenance and come with a 10 year warranty.
HOW DOES UV WATER TREATMENT WORK?
A UV Sterilizer will expose your water to ultraviolet light that attacks the genetic code of microorganisms by breaking the molecular bonds of their DNA/RNA.
This process is designed to eliminate a microorganisms ability to function or reproduce, so it cannot infect other organisms that it comes in contact with.
UV Sterilization is estimated to kill 99.9% of microorganisms and is the most effective bacteria removal process available today. In addition to bacteria removal – E.coli, coliform, virus, algae, mold and others – Our Excalibur Ultraviolet Sterilizers are effective against protozoan such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia Lamblia.
A UV water sterilizer can supply contaminant free drinking water for your family, your business, or your livestock in a simple yet effective manner.
One of the other major benefits of UV sterilizers is that the process of exposing water to ultraviolet light can be done without adding any chemicals to your water supply. If you are a homeowner or farmer, this can save you from needing to filter chemicals from your drinking water supply after UV disinfection.
UV sterilizers can also be easily used in combination with other water treatment systems, such as reverse osmosis water filtration systems, to eliminate additional contaminants in your water supply. These types of systems are recommended in situations where you have identified contaminants that are non-organic or if your water contains hardier microorganisms.
The bulbs used for UV sterilizers will need to be changed on a annual basis.
