Ultraviolet Sterilization Systems
Why should we invest in an Ultraviolet (UV) Sterilization System?
In some instances well water is contaminated with Coliform and other bacteria. Bacteria are harmful to consumer health. The only way to kill bacteria is via sterilization.
UV Sterilization has proven to be a most effective way to kill bacteria. UV Sterilization is a point-of-contact disinfection system that does not alter the taste or the quality of the water, involves no chemicals, and results in no chemical by-products. It is recognized by state and federal environmental regulation agencies as a safe and effective method of sterilization.
Ultraviolet Sterilization Systems are whole house units, treating all the water that enters the house. All water passes through the UV Rays, which kills the bacteria prior to the bacteria reaching the tap.
