WHY TREAT WATER WITH UV-C?
Treatment for drinking water is done to make sure the water meets the requirements for drinking water, improving organoleptic (color, smell, taste), chemical (e.g., removing iron and manganese) and microbiological characteristics (eliminating bacteria harmful to human health like E. coli, Giardia, Legionella, Salmonella, etc.).
The quality of water depends on its origin. The highest quality waters are those derived from sources and deep wells; they generally require simple treatments (sedimentation, filtration, and disinfection) as they benefit from the natural phenomena of “self-purification” that occur during the filtration of water in the soil and the layers of the subsoil.
Surface and some groundwater, especially lowland waters, require longer treatment chains because of their characteristics and vulnerability to accidental pollution. In some groundwater, it is necessary to carry out treatments to remove pollutants of both natural and anthropogenic origin. The disinfection process is the final treatment stage that acts on the residual microbiological component and ensures the absence of pathogenic microorganisms.
In the treatment chain, disinfection is essential to ensure adequate hygienic-sanitary protection. Disinfection through UV-C rays with the help of UV-WATER allows the killing of the microbiological forms present in the water without altering the chemistry.
This process will reduce the incidence of water purchase costs per family; with the application of our UV water, you can have water always ready to drink, and no more buying and transporting crates of water from the supermarket to your home.
Regarding the ecological response of UV-WATER, in recent years, there have been many campaigns for the reduction of plastic; on 19 December 2018, the European Commission issued an agreement to cut the production of disposable plastic objects. Using UV-WATER has earned us many favors, respected the environment, and reduced consumption. We respect the environment around us and avoid using disposable bottles.
