Ultraviolet Disinfection Systems
An Ultraviolet Light from Captains Solutions is your number one defense against bacteria, mold and viruses. Our systems are designed for use in Residential and/or Commercial applications that require a 99.9% kill rate of Bacteria and Viruses. Ultraviolet Water Purifiers work by creating ultraviolet light rays that have been proven to be most effective in killing microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, yeasts and molds. In addition, this is all accomplished without the addition of harmful chemicals, odors or tastes to your drinking water!
The lamps used in our Ultraviolet Water Purifiers are specially designed to produce the highest amounts of UV. In fact, these are the same lamps that are used extensively in the food and beverage industry, medical field, and numerous other sterilization applications. When it comes to protecting you and your family against the dangers of contaminated water, the choice is clear!
Why Use Ultraviolet for Water Treatment?
Public water supplies are required by law to be bacteria and virus free. However, this is not normally the case with private well water systems – which have an inherent vulnerability to contamination from bacteria and viruses. If you rely on private well water then it is your responsibility to ensure the safety of your water. This is especially true when the well condition is poor, the septic system has malfunctioned, the well has been subject to floodwater, abandoned wells or when feed yards are nearby. Have friends and visitors complained of stomach or intestinal distress? Bacteria are commonly found in well water supplies and may sometimes even indicate that your well has become contaminated with fecal matter possibly introducing harmful viruses and protozoa. While there are many ways to protect your private well water supply, an Ultraviolet Disinfection System is the only solution that is guaranteed to kill the bacteria and viruses in your water supply.
What are the Advantages of Ultraviolet Water Purification
Ultraviolet water purification systems can be used for well water and surface water disinfection. Ultraviolet water purification compares favorably with other water disinfection systems in terms of cost, labor, and the need for professional operation. UV treatment is fast and averaging 20,000 times more effective as opposed to boiling.
