Diagram is for Model 1000 on right >>

Just below the smallest wavelength of visible light is a band called the Ultraviolet Spectrum. The "Germicidal Band" (UVc) of the Ultraviolet Spectrum is 100 - 280 nanometers. Light at this wavelength destroys microorganisms including bacteria and viruses. The WaterFixer operates at 253.7 nanometers, which is the most effective wavelength for germicidal action. Microorganisms are destroyed by UV light on contact--this means that UV light must strike the organism to be effective. Since UV light will not penetrate anything but a clear liquid, to maintain clarity of your water the WaterFixer comes with two prefilters.


PRE-FILTRATION


The first prefilter screens out larger size substances; the second filter screens out remaining fine sediment plus chlorine and other chemicals while eliminating any existing odors or unpleasant tastes in your water. It also filters parasites such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium cysts. Inside the 304 stainless steel disinfection chamber, the ultraviolet bulb is housed in a special quartz sleeve (tube) that allows the bulb to emit energy at the 253.7 nanometers wavelength. The sterilizing power of the unit is defined by how many microwatts can be applied to the water per second. At a flow rate of 4 gallons per minute, the WaterFixer radiates significantly greater energy than the 16,000 microwatt seconds per square centimeter required by the U.S. Public Health Service for UV disinfection equipment. To ensure effectiveness of the ultraviolet component, prefiltration is mandatory. Only approved filters should be used.
 
GREAT FOR BOATS & RVs
In the Great Outdoors, some of the potential dangers of drinking unsterilized water are: Chemical Pollutants, Protozoa & Larger Parasites, Bacteria and Viruses.

Boats and RVs may need to fill their water storage tanks from questionable sources. Holding tanks without inhibitors may grow bacteria and impart unpleasant tastes and odors while endangering your health with unseen viruses. The WaterFixer sterilizes your water as it flows into your glass or container.

OTHER USES
Other WaterFixer uses include farm and rural residents who draw water from wells that may contain bacteria from animal waste and surface contaminants; lake homes that draw water directly from a reservoir, lake, cistern, or well system; city residents who often find their water distasteful (in some cases even dangerous) due to strong chemical additives.
