Ultraviolet light water treatment is a quick and effective way to ensure your water supply is safe from harmful pathogens like E. coli, Giardia, and Cryptosporidium. UV water purification does not require chemicals and will not affect the taste of water.
Over recent years, UV light water treatment has become increasingly popular in homes and businesses because it is relatively inexpensive, highly effective, and compatible with other water purification processes like reverse osmosis and filtration. Hospitals, factories, bottling plants, breweries, wineries, farms, and fisheries are all using UV water treatment, which is effective against 99.99% of harmful microorganisms.
At Tri-County Water Services, we install UV disinfection units and offer a wide range of other water treatment options. We are fully insured and have more than 20 years of experience purifying water in southeastern Pennsylvania. Call 610-857-1740 to learn more.
How Does Ultraviolet Light Water Treatment Work?
UV water treatment works through a DNA modification process called “inactivation.” UV-C rays are able to penetrate microorganisms and alter their DNA in such a way that prevents them from reproducing. This makes them incapable of causing infection.
Here are some of the key advantages of using ultraviolet light water treatment:
- No chemicals or holding tanks are required.
- UV light does not affect the taste of water, making it ideal for food processing applications and bottling plants.
- UV light is compatible with other water purification processes.
- UV is more effective than chlorine against viruses.
- Unlike chemical disinfection, microorganisms cannot develop immune mechanisms against UV light.
- UV disinfection units are less expensive than chemical treatment systems.
- UV disinfection units require very little maintenance, and the electrical running cost is similar to that of a regular light bulb.
