WHAT IS GERMICIDAL UV WATER FILTRATION?
Germicidal Ultraviolet Water Filtration is the process of sterilizing microorganisms in water with high intensity ultraviolet light. Germicidal Ultraviolet Lamps emit light on the UVC spectrum at 253.7nm that penetrates and scrambles the nucleus of a cell rendering it sterile and unable to affect the person who ingests it. One other significant item included in a proper Uv water filter systems is prefiltration. The CDC recommends a pre-filter with a maximum pore size of 1 micron to pre-filter water before entering the Uv Light Chamber.
Why Have Pre-Filtration before the UV Chamber? Pre-filtration before UV is as important as the UV chamber itself. It is needs for two reasons. First, the pre-filter will remove larger organisms and organisms that are attached to particles that the UV light cannot penetrate. Second, the pre-filter will clear turbidity from the water so that the UV light can penetrate and sterilize effectively. To ensure that the water entering the UV chamber is free of sediment, which may cast shadows and provide shelter for microorganisms, and to screen out the larger, more hardy life-forms, such as cryptosporidium cysts, microfiltration, down to .5 microns, is used by Water Safe Pro in conjunction with a Germicidal Ultraviolet water purification system.
UV Light Dose Strength: The strength of a dose is a product of the UV light intensity and exposure time. Water Safe Pro UV water filter systems have been tested and certified by John Pylant, the chief engineer of the CSA Group, Inc. in Eldon, MO, as fully treated by the UV light exceeding World Health Organization Standards. All current Water Safe Pro UV systems are capable of sterilizing up to 3 gallons per minute.
UV Water Purification- The Germicidal UV Solution: Water Safe Pro UV water purification and filtration systems is proud to present a line of ultraviolet water purification systems for most water filtration situations. By combining micron carbon filtration and the power of germicidal UV, these systems remove chlorine, E. Coli, coliform bacteria, viruses, algae, foul tastes and odors, and many other contaminants. Water Safe Pro UV Purifications Systems provide safe,clean water from nearly any water source.
Is it Safe?
Absolutely. Ultraviolet light does not irradiate, contaminate, or change the molecular structure of your drinking water. UV light is a natural, safe, and effective way of eradicating microbial growth without posing a danger to humans or pets.
Is it Environmentally Friendly?
Yes. For every gallon of water pumped into a germicidal UV system, one gallon of clean water is created. There is no waste involved in the process - avoiding costly 'flushing' required by Reverse-Osmosis systems.
Is it Affordable?
With purification units starting at around $200, a germicidal UV system can provide safe, clean water for a fraction of the cost of bottled water. After the initial purchase, the average annual maintenance cost can be as low as $30 - providing safe, clean water for pennies a day! Water Safe Pro Uv Systems provide a safe, affordable and effective alternative to a reverse osmosis water filter, distillation, ionization, ozonation, and bottled water. Whether you are looking for a system for your home, RV, or boat, or if your drinking water comes from a well or city water supply, we have a model that will meet your needs.
