UV & Chlorination Systems to Remove Bacteria & Oxidize Contaminants

Microorganisms including bacteria, viruses, and protozoa (such as Giardia lamblia and Cryptosporidium) may be present in well or surface water. According to the Water Quality Association (WQA):

“…microbial contaminants, such as E. coli, Giardia, and Cryptosporidiumcan cause gastrointestinal problems and flu-like symptoms commonly attributed to undercooked or improperly stored food. They include:

Bacteria: Single-celled organisms lacking well-defined nuclear membranes and other specialized functional cell parts which reproduce by cell division or spores. Bacteria may be free-living organisms or parasites. Bacteria (along with fungi) are decomposers that break down the wastes and bodies of dead organisms, making their components available for reuse. Bacterial cells range from about 1 to 10 microns in length and from 0.2 to 1 micron in width. They exist almost everywhere on earth. Some bacteria are helpful to humans, while others are harmful.

Viruses:  Parasitic infectious microbes, composed almost entirely of protein and nucleic acids, which can cause disease(s) in humans. Viruses can reproduce only within living cells. They are 0.004 to 0.1 microns in size, which is about 100 times smaller than bacteria.

Cysts: Capsules or protective sacs produced by many protozoans (as well as some bacteria and algae) as preparation for entering a resting or a specialized reproductive stage. Similar to spores, cysts tend to be more resistant to destruction by disinfection. Fortunately, protozoan cysts are typically 2 to 50 microns in diameter and can be removed from water by fine filtration.”

How To Treat Bacterial Contamination in Water

UV (ultraviolet) water purification is a chemical-free and cost-effective way to ensure your water is free of harmful bacteria.

If you are unsure of the microbiological quality of your source water or if you are looking for additional security from your municipal water source, then McLeod’s EcoWater has the solution for residential UV systems.

UV technology is proven to control microbiological (bacteria & virus) issues in water including E.coli, Cryptosporidium and Giardia lamblia. Our systems provide the ultimate in UV protection for your home.

Chlorination & peroxide systems from McLeod's EcoWater include a chemical feed pump designed to inject a predetermined level of chlorine or peroxide into the water. This will kill bacteria and oxidize high levels of iron, manganese, and sulfur.

From there a retention tank is used to ensure contact time for a proper bacteria kill, and/or time to completely oxidize iron and sulfur.

The oxidized contaminants will then be filtered through multimedia filters and lastly, a carbon filter will remove chlorine and/or organics which may be present in water.

Just had new softener and sulfur filters installed by two very accomplished installers, Wyatt and Ethan. Their work was very neat and well done. I recommend them highly. As for the filters, we could not be happier with the ones selected by Kimberly. Thanks for a hassle free installation and great water !!!.

From the first call to the post installation questions, the team at McLeod's water has been responsive, accommodating and professional. Very grateful they were able to upgrade and install new components to our water system in time for us to move into our new home.

Install went well. The installers were courteous, the install was clean and fast. We purchased a reverse osmosis system and water softener. They were not cheap. It has been 4 months and I can honestly say it is one of the best purchases we have ever made. I had no idea how bad our water actually was. It was literally a life changer. We are so happy!

Absolutely amazing team from Kimberly in sales and the install team. A possible issue post install was very quickly resolved and found that it had nothing to do with the Ecowater system. Very very happy with all and would gladly recommend McLeod's to everyone looking for amazing water.
