Microbiological contaminants may be in your water supply for a variety of reasons. Although microbiological issues such as fecal coliform (E-coli), Cryptosporidium, Giardia Lamblia (Beaver Fever), and many others, could be contaminating your water supply, Nelsen Water Treatment Solutions UV is a relatively easy solution to any of these problems.
UV is safe, easy to use, environmentally friendly, and provides virtually immediate disinfection without altering the taste of the water or imparting any potentially harmful disinfection by-products (DBP’s).
As long as proper pre-treatment is maintained, an annual system check-up and lamp replacement are all that is required. The UV system is designed to be left on; a typical household system will draw about the same energy as a 40 watt light bulb!
For homes that have more than one tap, and that includes a bathroom faucet, the installation of a point-of-entry (P0E) UV system is the best choice. Safety is the main reason for this logic although you may never drink from that bathroom tap. Safety is the prime reason to install a whole home UV system.
