Your water supply may not be as clean as it appears. Ultraviolet (UV) sterilization disinfects your drinking water, makes it safe, and does not alter the taste, colour, or odour of your water.

UV technology is a safe, environmentally friendly alternative to primary disinfection, free of harmful by-products that come with chemical disinfectants. Although chlorine can be used to combat certain bacteria in water, it does not have the power to effectively treat the more harmful bacteria sometimes found in water. In addition, ultraviolet technology destroys waterborne contaminants that chemicals leave behind.

Whether you’ve got a residential or commercial property, The Water Shed can help keep your drinking water uncontaminated with a UV sterilization system. The Water Shed installs Viqua’s Sterilight® series and services most of the other leading brands. We carry 10 different kinds of UV bulbs for assorted brands.

UV sterilization is the perfect choice for treating water used for drinking and food preparation. Our systems are low in cost for both the product and its ongoing operation. The energy used to run a UV system in an average home is comparable to a 40-watt light bulb!
