This customer in Camby, IN was dealing with unsatisfactory bacteria test results and decided to chlorinate the well and indoor plumbing, as well as have a UV light installed.
Chlorination and Ultraviolet light radiation are great ways to mitigate bacteria in well water. 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.
