Ultra Violate Rays effect on Water
January 8, 2010 7:55pm CST
Hi everyone. We have a water purifier called "Aqua-Guard" which also uses Ultra Violate Rays to purify the water. I heard that Ultra Violate Rays of the sun are harmful for human body. Now my question is that the water we drink purified by Ultra Violate Rays in our water purifier is safe to our body? Does it do any harm to our body in the long run? Please help me.

Yes, it's quite safe. The ultra-violet treatment of the water kills any bacteria in the water. Ultra violet is part of the light spectrum. If you shone a bright light into some water and then took it into a dark place, would it glow? No! No more does ultra violet have a permanent effect on water!
