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.

Very impressed with the entire process in consultation, pricing, install and final results. Our water was undrinkable (iron, funny taste) and we reached out to other companies in the area before touching base with McLeod's. Ryan came out and assessed or situation. His recommendation was superior and far cheaper then any alternative from other companies.We were even given a free filter. We no longer purchase bottled water or use our water dispenser. A year plus in and we could not be happier. Do yourself a favour and give them an opportunity to provide you with a plan and quote. You will not be sorry.

I am very pleased with the service that I recently received from McLeod's Ecowater. I ran into a problem with my reverse osmosis unit and thought that I would have to replace it - at a cost of almost $1,500.00. When the technician came out to address the problem, he identified a solution that simply required a part replacement - at a cost of less than $10. I appreciate that he took the time to really address our needs, rather than just complete the work order he was given. Thanks!

We got a new water softener, air pressure tank and UV system. They did an awesome job and got everything installed for soon after we had the rep out to our place. We had a small problem with the pressure and they sent out a technician to tweak the problem right away. I would highly recommend them for your water needs!!!

McLeod's Ecowater installed a filtered water bottle filling station in my yoga studio a couple of years ago. Their product and service is fantastic and so far we've saved over 17,000 plastic bottles thanks to them!
