Warning and Disclaimer: Ultraviolet treatment, chlorinating, or any other form of sanitation of contaminated water, is never a 100% guaranteed for bacteriological free water, but are EPA approved methods of water sanitation which add greatly to protection against waterborne pathogens. Proper ultraviolet sterilization is an instantaneous process which destroys 99.97% of pathogens and leaves no UV residual in the water. Periodic monitoring of the water supply and of the downstream piping system sanitation is recommended to help guard against downstream contamination or accidental contaminated water bypass. Ultraviolet sterilization and/or chlorine, is not recommended and should not be used for cyst treatment.
