Marine

Your water tank is likely contaminated and poses an unnecessary health risk to all onboard. You need safe & convenient drinking water the Acuva way.

Owning a boat can be a rewarding experience filled with life-lasting memories. To ensure those memories are positive there are a number of fundamentals to boat ownership.

One of the most important being access to a safe supply of drinking water. Without safe drinking water you are putting your health, and the health of all those on your boat, at unnecessary risk.

You need to ensure your onboard water is safe to drink and you want it to be free from any nasty chemical aftertaste or unpleasant odor. 

Your onboard water tank is likely already contaminated with bacteria, parasites or viruses. Basically everything you need to make your boating experience memorable – for all the wrong reasons – is alive and well in your water tank.  

So your onboard water tank poses a health risk. Great. How do you ensure access to safe drinking water when you need it? There a few available options, but each comes with limitations:

  1. Bottled Water – the common solution to having drinkable water onboard, but the plastic refuge will quickly pile up on your boat and this is not exactly an environmentally friendly solution.

  2. Water Filters – commonly used in households, but when it comes to filtering the water in your onboard tank, the pore sizes in water filters are too large to prevent illness causing bacteria from being in your drinking water. 

  3. Iodine Tablets – this chemical water purifier will not get rid of bacteria and it will leave your water with an unpleasant aftertaste and odor

Wouldn’t it be great to just tap into the water in your onboard tank knowing it is safe for consumption? But how do you ensure that water source is safe for you to drink?

The answer is quite simple: UV-LED. UV irradiation is well-accepted by both the EPA and the FDA as a safe, effective method of bacteria control.

A UV-LED solution from Acuva ensures you have safe drinking water when and where you need it.
