What is ultra-violet light?
Ultraviolet light is at the invisible, violet end of the light spectrum. Although we cannot see UV light, we are exposed to UV rays from all light sources, including the sun.
A distinctive trait of UV light is the range of its wavelengths, they are between 200 and 300 nanometers (billionths of a meter) and are categorised as germicidal which means they are capable of inactivating microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses. This ability has allowed the spread of UV light as an environmentally friendly, chemical-free and highly effective option ensures pure and safe drinking water.
How does UV light work?
UV-C rays pierce the cells of harmful bacteria and viruses in our drinking water, destroying their ability to reproduce. Without this ability, these organisms die and no longer pose a health threat. It is a simple but very effective process, with the system destroying 99.99% of harmful microorganisms.
What are the benefits of using UV?
For decades, chlorine has been successful in water treatment. However some organisms such as cryptosporidium and giardia are chlorine-resistant. Ultraviolet sterilisation is the ideal way of eliminating any waterborne bacteria or viruses while avoiding harmful disinfection by-products.
