Considering an ultraviolet filtration system for your Muskoka home or cottage? Here are three signs it may be time:
1. There is bacteria in your water .
Microbes like E.coli, cryptosporidium, and Giardia can be found in any water supply, and they are only detectable with a water quality test. You cannot see, smell or taste them in your water but they can still make you sick.
How ultraviolet can help:
Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection is a highly effective means of neutralizing microbes without the use of chemicals. If you are on a private water supply, it is your responsibility to ensure your water’s safety. Installing a UV system on a municipal water supply provides peace of mind when aging municipal infrastructure fails. Knowles Plumbing can assist Muskoka home and cottage owners with their water safety needs.
2. There is cloudiness in your water.
Excessive turbidity or cloudiness is caused by suspended particulates in the water. It’s unappealing and may also represent a health concern.
Effective turbidity removal from well water is easy with a VIQUA whole home backwashable filter with specialty zeolite media. Knowles Plumbing can assist Muskoka home and cottage owners with their water safety needs.
3. There is an unpleasant smell to your water.
It’s not uncommon for your well water to smell like rotten eggs. That’s from naturally occurring hydrogen sulfide gas. While it is unlikely to pose a health concern, it’s definitely unpleasant.
