Using UV radiation to treat contaminated water started in Europe in the early 1900's. In 1904 the first UV quartz lamp was created. It's original purpose was to treat vitamin D deficiencies but later became a integral part of most current UV water treatment systems.
How is UV radiation so effective at neutralizing bacteria and other micro-organisms? UV radiation is in the light spectrum below visible light and above x-rays. It has a wave length between 40-400nm. UVC 220-290nm is the portion of the UV spectrum used for anti bacterial purposes and has the ability to travel into the bodies of small organisms such as bacteria, viruses, yeasts and molds. The UV radiation attacks the DNA chain of these organisms causing them to loose their ability to reproduce effectively killing them.
