As you probably know, DNA is the building-block of life as we know it. The chemical 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 make 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 soil, sustains higher life-forms, and helps 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 your drinking water.
C&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&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. Contact us for more details!
