Bacteria and viruses are found in every water in our environment. Their number in drinking water must be below the value specified in the standard to avoid possible infections. UV light prevents the growth and development of these microorganisms, thus eliminating their presence in the water. In some cases, the bacterial purity of the water is particularly important: for example, in families with small children, in hospitals, medical and dental offices, catering establishments.

It is well known that ultraviolet radiation from the sun kills microorganisms, the equipment uses this principle to remove microorganisms in water. This method is considered to be the most economical and environmentally appropriate of the methods used today.

The water to be treated then flows under fluorescent tubes that emit ultraviolet (UV) light, and the intense radiation disinfects the water. In contrast to the common chemical disinfection, UV sterilization does not leave an unpleasant aftertaste, nor do we have to fear the formation of trihalomethane.
