While we’re still on the subject of pure drinking water, not every home or restaurant may be able to afford a reverse osmosis water system or have the capabilities needed for one. That’s why water filters make a great substitute. In the meantime, UV treatment comes along as a service that Yellow Submarine Plumbing & Rooter can provide.
What is UV treatment and why is it needed for your home or restaurant though? Short for ultraviolet treatment, this process is used for the sake of keeping your health and everyone’s health at minimal risk. In raw water, before it’s disinfected for drinking purposes, several viruses, bacteria, and even protozoa are potentially present. We need these harmful substances to be removed from the raw water, otherwise, we’re put at greater risk of catching diseases we don’t want.
What UV treatment does is make these pathogens inactive and thus unlikely to cause anyone any harm. An ultraviolet range of light takes care of these as the water passes through the UV unit being used for treatment. Most pathogens become harmless as a result of this form of filtration treatment. The end result? Pure, clean drinking water without having added to or taken anything away from it in a cost-effective manner. While UV treatment is not necessary, filtration for water is for the sake of everyone’s health!
