The New Technology...
The increasing pollution of the environment by inorganic and organic substances has helped ultra-violet (UV) disinfection gain increased acceptance as a part of consumer water treatment systems. Most high-end home water filter systems now employ UV components, and a variety of products from Sharper Image, General Electric and Panasonic are UV-based quality appliances.

The UV disinfection process itself is simple, reliable and economical, yet most UV water purification systems still add one or more carbon or mesh filters to improve taste and odor of the water. These systems, while effective, generally require high water pressure, standard household electric current, and bulky components and tubing. Because of the complexity of these systems, it is difficult to keep the cost down.

But in many settings outside of the home, a full-blown water filtration isn't needed.

Instead, the primary need in a camper or survivalist is to purify the water. This is where UV is ideal.

Ultra-violet C-band (UV-C) purifiers work differently from filtration systems by generating ionizing radiation at 254nm that quickly and effectively disrupts the cellular chemistry of all known pathogens, halting DNA replication.

This breaks down organic components of alien living organisms into harmless material.
