Water filtration for untreated tank water like rain water, stream or bore water.
Ultra Violet (UV) water sterilisation is the system of choice for these water types using pre-filters and UV light as the natural process to sterilise your water.
This does not add any chemicals into your water, nor alter the water chemistry. Ultraviolet light energy inactivates harmful microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses by disrupting the DNA, effectively preventing them from multiplying and causing illness. The pathogens are destroyed in the time water passes through the disinfection chamber. E-coli, Cryptosporidium, and Giardia lamblia (Beaver Fever), Legionella are examples of waterborne microorganisms that cause numerous gastrointestinal illnesses which are easily controlled with UV disinfection.
The standard UV system comes with twin pre filters of 20 and 1 micron pore size to filter out dirt and sediment followed by the UV chamber itself **.
We love this product as it does exactly what it says it will. As with all our filter systems, there are filters to be changed regularly as well as the UV lamp itself that will need to be replaced every 12 months in order to remain effective and continue to do their job. Once you purchase your UV sterilising kit, you go on the data base and we will contact you in 12 months to arrange the replacement filters and UV lamp.

Alternatively, we can get one of our trusted service people (or your local plumber) to install this for you at a nominal fee*.
