Stay safe – let’s WaterQuip you! 💦
Not all water purifications technologies are created equal. For example, chemicals can be both dangerous to handle and potentially hazardous to the environment – and some waterborne illness-causing microbes are chlorine-resistant. Filters can improve taste, but they generally don’t treat microbiological contaminants. Reverse osmosis uses lots of energy, wastes on average three liters of water for every one liter it purifies, and is no longer recognized as a barrier to microbiological contamination. It is also not a suitable method for water containing high levels of sediments, like in Uganda.

But fortunately, there is an option that addresses all of these issues: ultraviolet (UV) disinfection or UV water treatment.
Water is disinfected as it runs through a stainless steel chamber containing a UV lamp. As water flows past the lamp, illness-causing microorganisms receive a lethal dose of UV light that attacks their DNA and eliminates their ability to reproduce. Harmful bacteria and viruses are deactivated, and your family is safe. UV water disinfection is a safe, chemical-free way to treat water. Even chlorine-resistant microorganisms are made harmless through UV exposure. Lack of chemicals means no harmful chemical byproducts are going back into the environment, and the taste of your water is not affected in any way.
