An ideal water filtration and purification solution for the cottage uses an ultraviolet light sterilizer in conjunction with sediment and carbon filters.
Sediment filter: Removes sediment required for effective functioning of the UV unit as bacteria can hide behind particulate larger than 10 microns.
Carbon filter: Acts as a polishing filter improving the smell and taste of water and absorbing chemicals which could be present in the water (i.e. gasoline and oil from boats).
UV disinfection: typically offers a 99.99% reduction in both bacteria and virus, including E. coli, Cryptosporidium, Giardia (beaver-fever), and is more effective than chemical disinfection process at destroying viruses.
UV is a physical disinfection process — no additives are required and it does not change the taste of the water. It simply provides safe reliable disinfection.
Cottage Water Supply filtration and UV purification systems come fully-assembled and are designed for easy winterization with specially-added drain valves. Our systems also include pressure gauges to indicate flow reduction / filter replacement, and are built with all metal fittings for durability.
