The DNA of Water Treatment

By August 5, 2019 Water Treatments

As you probably know, DNA is the building block of life as we know it. The chemical is known as DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid (say that five times fast), was first discovered in 1869. This discovery has changed the world and advanced human civilizations exponentially. Contained within the DNA nucleus is the genetic information that makes up human chromosomes. Chromosomes are in every cell of our bodies. The sequence of this information manifests itself in everything from our hair and eye color, to the shape of our nose and ears. Humans beings aren’t the only creatures with DNA. This complex coding is found in plants, animals, viruses —even bacteria.

Comparatively, bacteria is basic and unrefined, but it has many useful applications. Bacteria can fertilize the soil, sustains higher life forms, and help decay dead organic material. It is also used in food preparation and antibiotics. Despite the beneficial and life-saving functions of bacteria, it can also cause diseases. One place you don’t want bacteria is in your drinking water.

c and j water can help you take the necessary precautions to eliminate the harmful bacteria that can come from your tap. We have several resources designed to destroy the common microorganisms found in well water. One such application is an Ultraviolet Light Purification System. A UV light can give you peace of mind that the microorganisms in your water are destroyed and your well water is safe to drink. As bacteria in the water passes through the UV treatment system, the ultraviolet light disrupts its DNA, eliminating the ability to reproduce. If it can’t reproduce, it can’t replicate, ensuring it can’t infect what it comes into contact with. UV light water purification systems are simple but very effective. Ultraviolet light systems also have many benefits that other purification applications don’t. They are reliable, do not waste any water, and have relatively low maintenance. Also, UV light disinfection is approved by the EPA because it is chemical-free and doesn’t create any harmful byproducts. c and j water can install this safe and effective water purification system and give you the peace of mind that comes with drinking bacteria-free well water.
