Ultraviolet (UV) Water Sterilizer - WaterTeck water treatment specialists, water purification Ireland, waste water treatment

Ultraviolet (UV) water sterilizers are designed specifically to kill harmful micro-organisms such as bacteria and viruses in untreated water supplies (well water or private water systems). Ultraviolet (UV) systems are commonly installed by homeowners who have received a positive coliform, e.coli, cryptosporidium, or giardia water test result, as well as those with reason to suspect that they are at higher risk for such contamination, and those seeking to have peace of mind that there water is being properly disinfected prior to consumption. Ultraviolet water sterilizers are exploding in popularity due to their low maintenance requirements, ease of operation, economical purchase price and operating cost, and due to the fact that unlike other treatments designed for microbiological contaminants, UV does not introduce any harmful chemicals to your water. Germicidal spectrum UV light is often used to destroy harmful volatile organic compounds in industrial applications!

Advantages of UV treatment
 Chemical free approach - no harmful bi-products or chemicals added to your water
 Effectively kills bacteria, viruses, mold spores, fungi, oocysts (cryptosporidium and giardia) and other microbiological contaminants
 Simple operation, limited maintenance, and easy installation
 Low initial cost and ongoing operating cost relative to other treatment methods
The UV lamp, which is enclosed in a quartz sleeve, produces ultraviolet light that destroys waterborne pathogens such as bacteria and viruses by penetrating the cell wall and de-activating the DNA so they are unable to reproduce.


BACTERIA

Threats
Health symptoms may include diarrhea, cramps, nausea, possible jaundice, and associated headaches and fatigue.
Water contaminated with bacteria should not be used for drinking or cooking unless you boil it with a rolling boil for one minute or the water is disinfected by other means.
Coliforms The presence of these bacteria indicates that disease-causing microorganisms, known as pathogens, may enter the drinking water supply in the same way if one does not take preventive action. Drinking water should be free from coliform

Solution
• Boiling,
• Chlorination,
• Ultraviolet light,
• Microfiltration,
• Distillation
Bottled water is also an alternative for drinking and cooking until the problem can be corrected.
