Why do you treat water with UV-C rays?

The drinking water treatments are designed to make the water comply with the requirements for drinking water, improving the aspects: organoleptic (color, smell, taste), chemical (eg by removing iron and manganese) and microbiological (eliminating bacteria harmful to human health as E. coli, Giardia, Legionella, Salmonella, etc.. ).
The quality of water depends on its origin:
- The best quality waters are those derived from sources and deep wells; they generally require simple treatments (sedimentation, filtration and disinfection) as they benefit from the natural phenomena of "self-purification" that occur during the filtration of water in the soil and in the layers of the subsoil.
- Surface waters and some groundwater, especially lowland waters, require longer treatment chains because of their characteristics and their vulnerability to accidental pollution. In some groundwater it is necessary to carry out treatments for the removal of pollutants of both natural and anthropogenic origin.
The disinfection process is the final treatment stage that acts on the residual microbiological component and ensures the absence of pathogenic microorganisms.
 In the treatment chain, disinfection is essential to guarantee the final consumer adequate hygienic-sanitary protection.
Disinfection through the use of UV-C rays with the use of UV-WATER allows to kill the microbiological forms present in the water without altering the chemistry.
This type of process also has other important advantages:
- Reduce the incidence of water purchase costs per family, with the application of our uv-water you can have water always ready to drink, no more buying and transporting crates of water from the supermarket to your home.
- The ecological response of UV-WATER, in recent years there have been many campaigns for the reduction of plastic, on 19 December 2018 the European Commission issued an agreement to cut the production of disposable plastic objects. We respect the environment around us and avoid using disposable bottles. Our UV-WATER with its green philosophy has collected many favors, respects the environment and reduces consumption.
