A chemical-free water disinfection system.

How Does UV Work?

Ultraviolet light restructures the DNA of bacteria, mold spores, viruses, and yeast to halt reproduction. The ultraviolet water disinfection process is chemical-free and does not result in any residual tastes or odors.

Is UV Right For Me?

An ultraviolet water treatment system is recommended for homes that have failed a water test, especially those with well water. Ultraviolet water purification can treat yeast, virus, mold spores, and bacteria in well water. Pristine Water Systems offers units from 8 to 20 gallons per minute (gpm). View the UV Products page for more information. Ultraviolet water treatment can also be used in pool disinfection with a specially designed system.
