Water supplies not already protected by a municipal water source such as well water supplies require disinfection. Taking the initiative and ensuring the safety of your home water supply is a must, and this requires you provide your own method of disinfection. There are several methods of disinfection one can use such as UV light and chlorination available in liquid or pellet form.
Ultraviolet sterilization is the most popular method for disinfecting water today. UV light takes advantage of short wavelengths to sterilize micro-organisms in drinking water as they pass through the light. Ultraviolet sterilization will never affect the smell or taste of your water as it is a physical disinfecting process requiring no additives. UV systems are also very energy efficient and typically require the same amount of energy as a 40 watt light bulb.
UV disinfection can offer a 99.99% reduction in bacteria and is more effective than chemical processes. If you are receiving your water from a municipal water source, you can always implement ultraviolet sterilization for an additional layer of protection. Your drinking water can never be too safe when it comes to your home and family.
