Keep your water treatment systems free from bacteria and other pathogens with sanitizers and disinfectants from US Water Systems. We carry sanitizers for reverse osmosis (RO) and water softeners, as well as well disinfection and sanitizer packs. While the water that comes into your home should be free of bacteria and other microorganisms, it is possible for your system to be exposed to contaminants in the air or from another source. It's important to keep your water system clean and sanitized so that you and your family can enjoy clean, healthy, great tasting water in your home. If you suspect that your water might contain bacteria or other disease-causing microorganisms, you may need a complete disinfection system.

Water that comes from a municipal water source, like your city or town, will have been treated to kill any microorganisms. When that water arrives at your home, it should still be free of any biological contamination. Many people choose to use a reverse osmosis system or a water softener to further treat their water, removing any chemicals, metals, hardness minerals, and other contaminants. There are situations in which your water treatment system may become contaminated, however, so it's a good idea to sanitize your system when you first install it and at least once a year to ensure that everything is clean and working effectively.
While you can sanitize an RO system or water softener with bleach, this can be messy and potentially damage internal parts. A better option is one of our Sani-System packets from Pro Products. These system sanitizers are EPA approved and contain no chlorine that could damage your system. Each dose comes in a pre-measured pouch that just needs to be poured into the system as directed. Before long, you'll have a clean, sanitized unit.
If you get your water from a well, you know that it needs to be checked regularly for bacterial contamination. There are also times when you'll need to open the water supply system for repairs. In both cases, you may need to "shock" the well to destroy any biological contaminants and keep your water safe to drink. Disinfecting a well isn't complicated if you have the correct treatment.
With the Well Safe well sanitizer kit from US Water Systems, you can quickly and easily clean your well. This kit is EPA registered and NSF approved, and far more convenient than liquid chlorination. Each well disinfection kit includes two bottles of chlorine. The chlorine pellets are dumped in the well casing, where they will dissolve at the bottom; the chlorine crystals are mixed with water and added to the well, where it can treat water near the top.
This kit is an ideal way to disinfect well water and helping to eliminate residue on pumps, casings, and in pipes. Using the Well Safe well sanitizer kit twice a year will also help improve the taste of your water by keeping the system free from iron and bacteria build-up.
