UV Water Filtration Services for Clean, Safe Water

A lot of folks in the Okanagan rely on wells, rivers, and lakes for their primary home water source, which means they run the risk of organic contaminants. Not only that, but many areas in the region have boil-water advisories for at least part of the year, particularly during the spring runoff. Our UV filtration systems are a reliable way to ensure your drinking water remains clean and safe all year round.

How UV Filtration Works

UV filtration uses a germicidal ultraviolet light to eliminate viruses, bacteria, and other living organisms from water. Ultraviolet light damages the DNA of organic contaminants so that they can no longer function or reproduce. When you have a UV system, all of the water you use in your home flows through a chamber that contains a UV lamp before it moves to your faucets and appliances. Through this process, all of your water is exposed to UV light before flowing through your plumbing for home use.

UV filtration systems are highly efficient in neutralizing up to 99.99% of living organisms present in water. Unlike conventional filters, UV purifiers leave no wastewater or residue, which means that every drop of water passing through the system is purified.

The Benefits of a UV Filtration System

  • Minimal maintenance required
  • Eliminates up to 99.99% of organic contaminants
  • No water waste
  • Clean water all-year round, even during boil-water advisories

If you are considering installing a water filtration device, a UV system may be the right solution for you! Many homeowners in the Okanagan have benefitted from the convenience and reassurance of clean, safe water all year long due to UV water filtration.
