When to Install an Ultraviolet Water Treatment System

There are a great many different kinds of contaminants that can be found in untreated water. Unfortunately, even though municipal water treatment plants exist to remove most of these contaminants, there is always a chance that some of them will manage to make it into your home. Some of these contaminants include living organisms, like viruses and bacteria. While many of them may not be as immediately harmful as elements like lead, they are still not things that you want to be exposed to if you can avoid it. That’s why it’s a good idea to install a UV treatment system.

How UV Water Purifiers Work

Ever heard the phrase: "sunlight is the best disinfectant"? Well, that sort of applies here. Many different kinds of germs are very phobic of UV light. Exposure to too much ultraviolet radiation will sterilize or kill these germs, which is good for you. A virus or bacteria that cannot multiply is not a threat to you. So, what the ultraviolet water treatment system does is shine a UV light on all the water that passes through it before it enters your home. This will lower your chances of infection by these organisms, and improve your health.
