WHAT'S IN YOUR DRINKING WATER?


Enjoy safe, clean water wherever your travels take you. Many boat and recreational vehicle owners share a common challenge: drinking water. Though nearly every vehicle with a faucet possesses a water storage tank, few are brave enough to drink anything that comes out of it. The tank is an ideal environment for the breeding of bacteria, viruses and other hazardous microorganisms. If staying in a campground or dock, one can utilize the available hook-ups, but often times, the available water supply is no safer than what is lurking in the water tank. Bottled water is expensive, bulky, cannot be used in the shower or ice maker, and its purity is arguable.

However, there is a solution. By installing a SAFH2O UV system on the faucet side of the water tank, every drop of water which passes through the faucets, shower heads or into the ice maker is clean, clear and safe. Efficient on size, cost to operate, and power consumption, SAFH2O UV units are perfect for South American explorations or weekend getaways in the Ozarks.

Many people choose filtration systems which may be integrated with their faucet, stored under their sink, or in their refrigerator. These systems often involve a carbon filter, which removes most large sediment, chlorine, and foul tastes and odors. In a well-maintained system, with a source free of hazardous dissolved solids and/or microorganisms, these filters are adequate and efficient. However, they do not address lead, sulfur, cryptosporidium, giardia, or a large number of contaminants.

People who live in areas with high amounts of dissolved solids in their water often make use of a Reverse-Osmosis system, which utilizes a large number of prefilters; a thin membrane, to remove the minerals; and a storage tank to hold the water produced, since the rate of production is usually measured in gallons per day. However, even these advanced systems are not without their drawbacks. Viruses and bacteria slip through the membrane and grow, unimpeded, in the warm and dark habitat of the holding tank, while the membrane indiscriminately removes nearly every mineral from the water, both good and bad.
