More Bad News About the Quality of UK Water?

You may have read our recent email about the recent cryptosporidium scare 
and our advice. Please see the blog again here.

It’s important to identify what contaminants are in our water and which filtration systems remove what. Unfortunately, it can also get very technical. So please do contact us if you are worried about your tapwater. Having said that, here is some more information that we hope will help you feel more informed. 

Jump straight to the water filter that will guard you against the threat of organic contaminants like Cryptosporidium parasite, bacteria like E. coli and viruses.

Which Filters Do What?

When it comes to parasites, bacteria and viruses:

  1. Ceramic filters: These filters use a porous ceramic material to filter out contaminants, including parasites like cryptosporidium. Ceramic filters can remove up to 99.99% of bacteria, like E. coli (faeces) from water.
  2. Reverse osmosis filters: Reverse osmosis filters use a semipermeable membrane to remove contaminants from water. These filters can remove bacteria like E. coli, viruses, and other contaminants, including cryptosporidium.
  3. Ultrafiltration filters: These filters use a membrane to filter out bacteria and other contaminants from water. Ultrafiltration filters can remove bacteria like cholera and E. coli, as well as other pathogens like cryptosporidium.
  4. Ultraviolet (UV) light filters:  They can be effective in removing cholera from water.
    1. UV light works by damaging the DNA of bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens, including cholera, which then prevents them from reproducing and causing illness. UV water purifiers are designed to kill a wide range of microorganisms, including cholera, by exposing the water to UV light. The process is quick, efficient, and does not require any chemicals or additional treatment.
    2. However, it’s important to note that UV water purifiers only work to disinfect water and remove microorganisms. They do not remove other types of contaminants, such as chemicals or heavy metals, from the water.
    3. Also, please note that the effectiveness of UV light in removing organic contaminants from water can be reduced if the water contains high levels of sediment or other particles. The contaminants can “hide” behind or within the particles, which can shield them from the UV light and prevent them from being effectively disinfected. It’s also important to note that the intensity of the UV light and the exposure time can also affect the effectiveness of the treatment.

It is, therefore, extremely important that you consult with us for the correct combination of water filters that can remove sediments, chemicals and metals and treat harmful organics like bacteria. The correct water filter ensures correct hygiene, health and taste for you, your family and business. Here is what we can offer:

Ultrafiltration Target Contaminant Filter System

Our Target Contaminant Filter System will remove all biological contaminants. The Ultrafilter UF filter Cartridge use ultrafiltration via hollow fibres to remove particles, bacteria, and viruses smaller than 0.1 microns from water. This is the best option to guard you against the threat of organic contaminants like Cryptosporidium parasite, bacteria like E. coli and viruses.

Just please make sure you select the “Ultra Filtration” option:

UV Sterilisation

Our UV Sterilisation Lights will kill all bacteria and viruses. Great for the E. coli presence in our water. They won’t remove cryptosporidium though, for that, you need our Target Contaminant Filter System mentioned above.
