We need water in all aspects of our lives, such for drinking, cleaning, washing, and cooking. When something’s that important, you want it to be clean and free of toxins, bacteria, and harmful minerals. That’s why whole house water filtration systems are growing in popularity in Charleston, Hilton Head, Bluffton, and surrounding areas of the South Carolina Lowcountry. Specifically, ultraviolet water filtration systems have gotten a lot of press over the last couple of years. But exactly what are these systems and how do they specifically help us get the pure water we need? Pinckney Water Treatment wants you to know the basics about this type of whole house water filtration system.

  • What is an ultraviolet water filtration system? – Ultraviolet water filtration systems, also called “Point of Entry Systems,” are found at the very beginning of a home’s water filtration system. These systems offer a clean and safe method of disinfecting water while being fairly easy to maintain. UV disinfection systems can destroy up to 99.99% of harmful microorganisms without the use of heat or chemicals.
  • Private wells – UV water filtration systems are perfect for homes that have private wells. Well water can pick up harmful substances (such as pesticides) from the soil where your water is kept. UV filtration systems screen out these substances before they enter your tap.
  • Cost-effective and efficient – UV systems work quickly and are relatively affordable. It’s best to work with a professional to ensure that your system is properly installed and to make sure it works efficiently for years to come. Our professional team can help you with your initial water testing, as well as the entire installation process.
