WHAT'S IN YOUR DRINKING WATER?
Enjoy safe, clean water wherever your travels take you. Many boat
and recreational vehicle owners share a common challenge: drinking
water. Though nearly every vehicle with a faucet possesses a water
storage tank, few are brave enough to drink anything that comes
out of it. The tank is an ideal environment for the breeding of
bacteria, viruses and other hazardous microorganisms. If staying
in a campground or dock, one can utilize the available hook-ups,
but often times, the available water supply is no safer than what
is lurking in the water tank. Bottled water is expensive, bulky,
cannot be used in the shower or ice maker, and its purity is
However, there is a solution. By installing a SAFH2O UV system on the faucet side of the water tank, every drop of water which passes through the faucets, shower heads or into the ice maker is clean, clear and safe. Efficient on size, cost to operate, and power consumption, SAFH2O UV units are perfect for South American explorations or weekend getaways in the Ozarks.

Many people choose filtration systems
which may be integrated with their faucet, stored under their
sink, or in their refrigerator. These systems often involve a
carbon filter, which removes most large sediment, chlorine, and
foul tastes and odors. In a well-maintained system, with a source
free of hazardous dissolved solids and/or microorganisms, these
filters are adequate and efficient. However, they do not address
lead, sulfur, cryptosporidium, giardia, or a large number of
People who live in areas with high amounts of dissolved solids in their water often make use of a Reverse-Osmosis system, which utilizes a large number of prefilters; a thin membrane, to remove the minerals; and a storage tank to hold the water produced, since the rate of production is usually measured in gallons per day. However, even these advanced systems are not without their drawbacks. Viruses and bacteria slip through the membrane and grow, unimpeded, in the warm and dark habitat of the holding tank, while the membrane indiscriminately removes nearly every mineral from the water, both good and bad.
