Ultra Violet disinfection: Why it's worth considering?


If you are collecting your household water from rain water, streams & open springs or shallow wells via a pressure pump. Then Ultra Violet water treatment is a must have & very important to consider for your family's health.

Faecal matter from animals & birds domestic or wild can find its way into the water supply and contaminate it with Faecal Coliforms. In terms of household water supply this would be regarded as unacceptable.

So now we put the spotlight on UV sterilisation, at such a time when we are all talking about Covid-19 and sanitisation. So, with regards to water quality and safety, then UVC light is the best form of treatment and is becoming more affordable. 

"Drinking water is essential to a healthy lifestyle"

How does it work?

Ultra Violet disinfection is an environmentally friendly treatment that does not alter the water chemistry or add chemicals.


The UV light inactivates the harmful microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses, effectively preventing them from causing illnesses then destroying the pathogens as they pass through the UV Chamber.

The UVC light kills germs like viruses and bacteria through damaging molecules like nucleic acids and proteins. This makes the germs incapable of performing the processes that it needs to survive.
