The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that millions of Americans fall ill every year from drinking unsafe water. Those with private wells often suffer the highest risk becasue homeowners are not routinely monitoring their water for bacteria and viruses. Flooding, animals, human waste, and damaged water pipes are all ways a water supply can be contaminated with bacteria. If you need a bacteria filter for well water, Pure Water Systems of Nevada can help. We’ll restore your confidence in your tap water with short-wavelength ultraviolet (UV) technology that kills disease-causing substances.

Protect Your Water From Bacteria and Viruses

Many residents in northern Nevada have private wells. Since these water systems do not connect to municipal water supplies, no government regulations exist to protect their water quality. When the region endures storms and flooding, bacteria and viruses might enter your water without your knowledge.

These organisms often cause gastrointestinal symptoms like cramps, diarrhea and vomiting. Those with compromised immune systems incur the highest risk of getting sick. Some bacteria and viruses aren’t harmful but leave an unpleasant musty smell in your water. Here are a few common contaminants we see in Nevada well water systems:

  • E. coli
  • Salmonella
  • Legionella
  • Shigella
  • Coliform
  • Streptococcus
  • Cysts (like cryptosporidium or giardia)
  • Rotavirus
  • Norovirus

Bacteria Treatment Solutions From Pure Water Systems of Nevada

If you’re looking for water filters and purification systems that remove bacteria and viruses, we have a solution. Our ultraviolet bacteria and virus treatment systems kill 99.99% of harmful organisms in your water. Compared to chlorine systems, this solution is chemical-free and lower maintenance.

We can incorporate the UV lamp with your current water purification setup as the final protection stage before your water gets to the tap. If you don’t currently have a purification system, we recommend adding one, as particulates can cloud your water, preventing the light from killing harmful substances.

If you want even more protection, we can also provide Luminor air purification systems. These devices attach to your existing forced air furnace systems to alleviate allergies and asthma while killing germs associated with colds and the flu. The lamps are energy-efficient and include safety features to prevent UV light exposure. They can purify the air in homes up to 3,500 square feet.
