Is your water safe?
How safe is the water you drink? Do you really know for sure? If your home relies on a private water supply – whether it is a well, spring, lake or river – the quality of the water you and your family drink varies from day to day. Heavy rainfalls or melting snow can affect its purity. Agricultural run-off and distant sources of contamination can leach into groundwater over time and impact wells miles away. The simple fact is – water that has been safe for years will not necessarily be safe tomorrow.
Bad water test? 20% to 40% of wells are contaminated
Water quality studies commonly find that between 20 and 40 percent of wells in any given area are contaminated with E. coli or coliform bacteria. Unfortunately, most people don’t take precautions until they’ve experienced a bad water test. And then, the typical response is to simply pour chlorine bleach into their well. Using chemicals for disinfection is a short term solution. More importantly, chemicals can produce carcinogenic by-products and affect the taste and odor of your water.
Boil water advisory?
Township and city-managed water supplies aren’t failsafe, either. Boil water advisories are becoming more common. Beyond the inconvenience they cause, such advisories are a clear warning that the clean water we’ve taken for granted is becoming a scarce resource.
How does UV work?
The germicidal energy of ultraviolet light destroys illness-causing microorganisms by attacking their genetic core (DNA). This powerful dose of UV light eliminates their ability to reproduce, and the organisms simply die.
Water is purified by running it through a watertight chamber that contains an ultraviolet lamp. As water flows past, microorganisms are exposed to a lethal dose of germicidal UV energy.
