Do you use rain or bore water at home or work?
If you answered yes, your water may be unsafe for drinking, cooking and cleaning. A UV sterilisation system can ensure that your water is safe to use.
What is UV sterilisation and why is it recommended for tank supplied water?
If not managed properly, water can become a brilliant breeding ground for nasty bacteria and viruses. Rain water collected from your roof can contain bird and rat droppings, defecant from possums and wild cats, dirt, rotting organic material and many other contaminants. There is serious risk to infants, elderly and to people who are already sick.
But what if your water comes from somewhere else?
Maybe it is pumped from a nearby stream; maybe you collect rain water or use a bore. In these cases you may need to treat your own water to make sure it meets potable water standards. UV water sterilisation is recommended by councils as the best water treatment to deal with contaminated water and local regulations now demand that UV sterilisation is used on all new properties or any renovations taking place.
UV systems attack nasty bugs at a cellular level
Before water enters your home, it runs though a UV treatment system to eradicate bacteria and viruses. As water runs through the system it is subjected to UV irradiation rays which penetrate and destroy the make-up of cells, rendering them incapable of multiplying. The water is also run though pre-filters which remove heavy sediment, protecting your appliances and tapware.
