Most private well owners agree that disinfecting their wells and maintaining safe drinking water are top priorities. After all, as a private well owner, it’s your sole responsibility for making sure your well water is clean and safe for consumption. You won’t have anyone from the public water department checking your water for you.
As a result, keeping tabs on your water quality and doing everything in your power to prevent well water contamination is a huge part of private well ownership—because drinking water contamination ultimately leads to disease and other negative side effects.
To keep your water free of bacteria, viruses, and fungi, we strongly recommend installing a permanent well water disinfection system. One such system is a UV disinfection system, which is high-performing, affordable, and dependable. Keep reading to find out if it sounds like a good fit for you!
Benefits of Ultraviolet Lamps for Disinfecting
Germicidal ultraviolet lamps, also known as UV-C lamps, produce powerful UV rays that literally kill bacteria and inactivate other organisms.
Some of the benefits of using an ultraviolet lamp to disinfect your well water include:
- Ultra-fast disinfection time
- Protection that’s constantly running
- Minimal maintenance (only occasional cleaning and annual bulb replacement)
- Economical value
- Long-lasting, reliable performance
When you opt for a UV water disinfection system, all you have to do is install the stainless steel chamber that houses the UV-C lamp, and then let it work its magic. The lamp will emit uninterrupted UV wavelengths through the water that sits in the well, thus neutralizing any and all organisms present. The result? Perfectly clean water that’s ready for drinking.
