UV Deluxe Options
Rainwater collection and storage is typical in many rural households with delivery to usage via a pressure pump. Faecal matter from birds, opossum, etc., on exposed roofs and guttering are likely to contain pathogenic organisms.
Stream/Spring gathered drinking water is typical in many rural households. Run-off from rain water on both reserve and grazing land into streams, open springs and shallow bores can contain faecal matter from animals and birds; both domestic and wild.
The quality of water from these supplies in terms of mineral/ chemical content is naturally good, however there is always potential for biological contamination. If tested, water from the above sources would be reported as containing “faecal coliforms” and this is totally unacceptable for a domestic supply. The most efficient method for treating this is filtration followed by Ultra-violet disinfection.
How Does Ultraviolet Disinfection (UV) Work?
UV water disinfection is a natural, environmentally friendly process which does not add any chemicals into your water and does not change the water chemistry. Ultraviolet light energy inactivates harmful microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses, effectively preventing them from causing illness. The pathogens are destroyed in the time water passes through the disinfection chamber.
