UV is Simple BUT Effective

blog heading iconUV is Simple BUT Effective

One of the most terrifying water quality issues out there is microbiological contamination; most adults have heard of E. coli, however there are many other pathogens to be concern with such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia. Would you be comfortable giving a baby - your child, grandchild, niece or nephew - a bottle filled with untreated tap water? Probably not! This is an extreme contrast but it’s essentially what you are doing every time you are using untreated UV water; even if you filter it. UV Disinfection devices are affordable, simple and very effective at keeping your water safe and free of harmful microorganisms.

blog heading iconConsidering Rainwater Harvesting?

For the homeowner, rainwater harvesting can mean many things. At its simplest, rainwater harvesting is the collection of rain in a barrel for watering plants, or it can extend to the development of a fully-independent home water supply. Interestingly, rainwater harvesting is a practice that starts small, but once engaged, homeowners and businesses are inclined to leverage further and further. So, when planning your rainwater system, it’s smart to think ahead for what your goals might be down the road – considering not just your current needs, but also in the future.

Both constant chlorination and ultraviolet (UV) disinfection are recognized by authorities like the EPA and Health Canada as effective means of disinfection. UV adoption, though, is on the rise, because under normal operating conditions, it’s effective against a broader range of microorganisms, including protozoa, like Cryptosporidium and Giardia. It’s also a chemical-free, environmentally-friendly solution. UV Technology is water disinfection without the hazard concerns of chemicals.

lead in water

blog heading iconLead in Water

Until it was banned in 1986, lead was commonly used for the service lines that connect water mains to individual homes, meaning upwards of 10 million homes across the country are impacted. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), approximately 10%- 20% of lead exposure comes from contaminated water. However, the issue is worse for babies consuming formula, as contaminated water can account for upwards to 60 percent of their lead exposure.

Cryptosporidium
Cryptosporidium

As cited on the CDC website:
Cryptosporidiosis is a diarrheal disease caused by microscopic parasites, Cryptosporidium, that can live in the intestine of humans and animals and is passed in the stool of an infected person or animal. The parasite is protected by an outer shell that allows it to survive outside the body for long periods of time and makes it very resistant to chlorine-based disinfectants.
During the past 2 decades, Cryptosporidium has become recognized as one of the most common causes of waterborne disease (recreational water and drinking water) in humans in the United States. The parasite is found in every region of the United States and throughout the world.


Giardia
Giardia

As cited on the CDC website: Giardia is a microscopic parasite that causes the diarrheal illness known as giardiasis and is protected by an outer shell that allows it to survive outside the body for long periods of time and makes it tolerant to chlorine disinfection. It is found on surfaces or in soil, food, or water that has been contaminated with feces (poop) from infected humans or animals. While the parasite can be spread in different ways, water (drinking water and recreational water) is the most common mode of transmission.


Other pathogens/ parasites can find their way into our drinking water supply, however Cryptosporidium and Giardia are the two most common. The reason municipality water has a Chlorine taste is because Chlorine/ Chloramine is used to treat our water supply to kill bacteria however Chlorine does NOT kill many pathogens. UV exposure is a guaranteed solution of preventing pathogens, bacteria and viruses from causing harm to you and your family in your home and keeping customers safe in your businesses.
