Bacteria in your water system often is not noticed until it is too late. While the wrong types of minerals in your water can result in unpleasant tastes and can damage your pipes, bacteria in your water can be dangerous because it can make those who drink it more prone to certain illnesses. Problems that can develop from drinking water contaminated with bacteria include gastrointestinal issues (diarrhea, vomiting, cramps, nausea), headaches, kidney issues, and even certain types of pneumonia.

Many types of bacteria can be present in your water; however, the most dangerous forms of bacteria are fecal coliform better known as E. coli, which often results from your water being contaminated with fecal material from humans or animals. Some waterborne pathogenic diseases include typhoid fever, viral and bacterial gastroenteritis, and hepatitis A.

As you can see, bacteria contaminating your water can be very dangerous for the health of your family. Fortunately, Metro Water Filtration carries a special line of products that can help to kill these bacteria for good. Our system utilizes Ultraviolet Light to kill the bacteria in your water. That’s right – UV light can be used to kill harmful bacteria! If you or a family member has experienced any sort of sickness that could be related to water-borne bacteria, give us a call and we will install our Ultraviolet Light Bacterial Removal System. We want you to have peace of mind as you drink your water!

So, how does it work? Our Ultraviolet Light system monitors the UV bulb at all times. As long as the UV bulb is functioning at its normal level, the system allows water to enter.  The water moves down through the tank where it then enters a stainless steel exposure chamber which contains the UV bulb. Water is forced to pass close to the UV bulb where any bacteria are immediately destroyed. The water then moves up to the top of the stainless steel exposure chamber and passes from the unit, ready for drinking.
