Your Family's Health from Waterborne Microorganisms!
The only way to be
confident your water is free of pathogenic microbes is to
destroy them by disinfection.
Although widely used for
disinfection, chlorine has several major disadvantages.
Chlorine reacts with
natural organic materials found in water to produce strong
unpleasant tastes, objectionable odor and other
byproducts. Some of these byproducts, such as
chloroform, are now regulated contaminants in drinking
water because of their carcinogenic properties.

UV, by comparison is a
natural process that disinfects without chemicals.
No byproducts are created.
UV destroys pathogenic
microbes by delivering concentrated amounts of UV (light)
energy to the reproductive mechanism of the microbe.
This prevents the microbe from reproducing. The
microbe is considered dead and the risk of disease has
