Water Purification Systems: A Brief Guide to UV Disinfection, Hiawassee, Georgia

Even with a good plumbing system, contaminants can still find their way into your water supply, putting the safety of anyone who uses it at risk. There are many options to remove harmful toxins from water. If you are looking for a reliable water purification system, the team at Chem Free Pure Water Systems says you could benefit from UV water disinfection. Based in Hiawassee, GA, the company provides residents in Union County and North Carolina’s Cherokee County with high-quality iron removal filters, water softeners, and additional water filtration solutions. 

If you’re not sure what system is best for your needs, below, the local water purification specialists share a brief guide to UV water disinfection:

  • water-purificationUnderstanding the Process: UV light is electromagnetic and radioactive, giving it the ability to damage the DNA of bacteria found in water. This prevents it from multiplying. To do so, a lamp that produces UV light, normally made of quartz glass, is installed in the water chamber. When water passes through the chamber, it’s exposed to the light.
  • Key Benefits: Although virtually unnoticeable to the naked eye, harmful bacteria, viruses, and parasites could be lurking in the water you drink, bathe with, and use to wash clothes. UV water purification stops these microorganisms in their tracks. The process not only keeps microorganisms from multiplying but also renders them 99.9% harmless to human and animal consumption. You’ll have a clean supply of H20 without the use of harsh chemical disinfectants. 
  • Drawbacks: Liquid with a high concentration of minerals and sulfates won’t allow the UV light to pass through. Depending on the quality of the water, you might need extra filtration equipment for UV water purification to work.
