Sunlight has long since been known to kill micro-organisms. The rays from the sun contain the UV Spectrum used in Ultraviolet Water Treatment Systems - although at much lower intensities. Ultraviolet (UV) is a safe, clean, easy-to-maintain method of assuring that water is free of bacteria. UV Water Purification uses Ultraviolet light, just like sunlight, to kill micro-organisms that may be in the water.
