Atlantic Ultraviolet releases UV water purifier, filtering system

Atlantic Ultraviolet Corporation announces its new Bio-Logic® Pure Water Pack™, the easiest point-of-use water filtration and UV disinfection system available. Rotatable heads make it different from any other unit on the market. The flexibility of being able to rotate the head on either side of the chamber to match the existing water connection streamlines installation and results in savings of time and money. Engineered and manufactured in the United States, the Bio-Logic® Pure Water Pack™ is economical, compact and versatile. It contains a two-part filtration process to remove unwanted sediment and reduce foul tastes and odors, and a stainless steel UV disinfection chamber to eradicate virtually all microorganisms. Its ability to purify and disinfect water, along with the ease of installation due to the rotatable heads makes it the best point-of-use system on the market. For information about the Bio-Logic® Pure Water Pack™, visit BuyUltraviolet.com.

Ann Wysocki, COO of Atlantic Ultraviolet, said she is excited about the release of this product because it fills a consumer need. She said: “For those people who want filtered and purified water, who want to stop buying bottled water, this product is designed for them. The Bio-Logic® UV Water Purifier and Pure Water Pack™ is designed for point of use installation, under any sink, and with the rotatable heads and the custom-made mounting bracket, the installation is easy.”

Evoqua’s ETS-UV™ Systems selected to disinfect advanced purified water

ETS-UV systems were selected for disinfection treatment of 114 million gallons of advanced purified, recycled water per year for recreational use in Lake Mission Viejo in Orange County, California.

This project has been a collaboration among the city of Mission Viejo, the Santa Margarita Water District and the Lake Mission Viejo Association.

The 124-acre lake is owned and operated by the association and is maintained with a combination of water sources, including potable water provided by Santa Margarita Water District.

In support of future water supplies, and given the ongoing drought conditions, the water district and the Association evaluated alternative water sources to replace the use of potable water from the District. They discovered that through advanced treatment, they can maintain lake water elevation levels with a sustainable, reliable, cost-effective source of local non-potable water that meets the water quality standards desired for the continued recreational use of the lake.
