How UV Sterilization Works
UV disinfection utilizes strong short-wavelength (250–280 nm) radiation to inactivate microorganisms by destroying the nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions. Currently, many major cities in Canada, United States, and Europe, such as Vancouver, New York, and Paris have adopted UV as their primary water disinfection process, making UV one of the fastest growing water treatment technologies.
We purify your water in two steps.
1. The Composite Filter removes sediment and activated carbon enhances the taste, odour and colour.
2. The UV-LED Chamber sterilizes harmful bacteria and viruses by disrupting their DNA.
Aren't Filters Good Enough?
Even if your water tastes great, you still risk getting sick with filters alone.
Filters do remove sediment, chlorine and odour to improve your water. But filters are generally not able to remove bacteria, viruses and cysts such as e.coli, giardia and cryptosporidium because these microorganisms are small enough to pass through a filter freely.
UV-LED vs UV Lamps
The conventional technique for UV water treatment utilizes UV mercury lamps. However, there are serious concerns related to the environmental impacts and performance limitations of UV-lamps.
