Why be concerned about your water supply?
Waterborne viruses and bacteria in drinking water supplies are a serious problem in Ireland and constitute a genuine threat to the nation's public health and wellbeing. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in a recently well-publicised report on the quality of drinking water in Ireland, stated that water supplies should be 'free from any micro-organisms and parasites and from any substance which, in numbers or concentrations, constitute a potential danger to public health'. In addition to the well-publicised E-Coli bacteria, there are several other equally poisonous micro-organisms potentially present in our drinking water - such as cryptospyridium, which accounts for 5% of diarrhoea in children in Ireland.

What are the benefits of softened water?
Softened water washes completely away without leaving scum behind. It makes laundry softer and brighter and makes glasses and dishes sparkle and shine.
Softened water saves time - independent studies have shown that considerable cleaning time is saved by using softened water. It can also save some 50% of washing powder and toilet soap consumption and similarly cut the use of shampoos, conditioners and cleaning products.
Softened water provides real cost savings in service, maintenance, and replacement of water heaters, dishwashers, washing machines and showers, it also extends their life.
It will improve the efficiency of hot water and heating system - just 1.6mm (1/16") of scale build-up in heating systems will cause a 12% loss in heating efficiency. Softened water can also remove existing scale deposits in hot water and heating systems as well as the scale around taps, in shower heads and stains on baths and basins.

Why use Ultra Violet Light to purify water?
Sterilisation of water supplies using Ultra Violet (UV) light is a technique which is rapidly growing and gaining favour over chemical techniques. The advantages of using UV light are many-fold, and include neither colouring, creation of foul taste nor smell on the water and rapid killing of bacteria and viruses, e.g. cryptospyridium. UV may be further used to generate ozone, which is also an effective germicidal substance.

Water Treatment with Reverse Osymosis.
Reverse osmosis is a filtration process that uses pressure to force a solvent through a filter that retains the solute on one side and allows the pure solvent to pass to the other side.
The membranes used for reverse osmosis have a dense barrier layer in the polymer matrix where most separation occurs. In most cases the membrane is designed to allow only water to pass through this dense layer while preventing the passage of solutes (such as salt ions)
In the United States, household drinking water purification systems, including a reverse osmosis step, are commonly used for improving water for drinking and cooking.
