Lake/Well Water Systems
Water Filters for Lake or Well Water
Unlike homes which get their water from municipal water systems which treat the water supply with chlorine or chloramine to disinfect most germs and viruses to prevent waterborne illnesses, those who get their water from lakes or rivers or even wells cannot be as assured that it is safe to drink.
There are two main means for treating microbiologically unsafe water (untreated water with potentially high bacteria counts) available to individual users here, which are either built into or offered as options to a number of the water purification systems in this sub-category:
- Ultraviolet-C germicidal filtration, which kills up to 99.95% of viruses, bacteria and pathogens, including giardia and cryptosporidium, but which requires a power source (although this can be mechanically generated, in some of the very small portable units); and,
- Nanofiltration (featured in the OPUS models with Nano in the name), whch removes protozoa, bacteria (campylobacter, salmonella, shigella, E. coli), viruses (enteric, hepatitis A, norovirus, rotavirus) and over 85% of pharmaceutical drugs tested.
But even clean, relatively germ-free well water may still have tastes or odors you would like to have removed, or have sediments, or an an over-abundance of some minerals or other trace elements such as mercury you want to be rid of. Aviva offers quite a number of filtration or purification systems which can produce the equivalent of bottled water at just a fraction of the cost, including many point-of-use ones which either go under the kitchen (or other) sink, or some countertop ones which do not require installation, and some Whole House System ones for treating all the water you use (including for flushing or washing).
