Ultra-Violet (UV) Systems
Safeguard against contamination. Install an Enviro Water Products UV disinfection system and you no longer have to be concerned about waterborne pathogenic organisms causing illness. Our UV systems kill bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens by preventing them from reproducing.
Municipal water can be deemed perfectly safe when it leaves the treatment plant. Nonetheless, boil water alerts (BWA) happen frequently as a result of the unexpected. Many times a boil water alert is issued 24 – 48 hours after contamination has occurred.
BWAs are issued for a variety of different reasons:
- Failure of disinfection equipment
- High turbidity levels due to a malfunctioning filtration system
- Water main breaks
- Questionable pathogenic bacteria detection
- General interruption of water treatment processes
