Many customers are reaching out to us about the COVID-19 Coronavirus and asking us if their water can carry the virus and what to do if anything. To answer these questions we researched the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and this is what the CDC says;
“The COVID-19 virus has not been detected in drinking water. Conventional water treatment methods that use filtration and disinfection, such as those in most municipal drinking water systems, should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.”
This is how we interpret the CDC comment: If your water is delivered by a municipal or other maintained source you are likely getting safe water. If your water comes from a private well, is not adequately disinfected or if you are concerned about keeping your water safe consider adding disinfection.
One simple and effective way to do disinfect and protect your water from the Coronavirus COVID-19 is with a UV (ultraviolet) disinfection system. A proper UV system will need to have water pre-filtered down to 5 micron and meet other water quality parameters.
