On the picturesque island of Coll locals and visitors fear becoming ill from their water. Rural living is wonderful, and growing in popularity as we become better connected globally, but how do you ensure access safe water for guests or your family?
On Coll, there is no piped water outside of the village, with properties rellying on private water suplies like boreholes, dams and springs, traveling to the village tap, or buying in botted water to access drinking water. There are 23,981 Private Water Supplies in Scotland, and it is now a legal obligation for commercial properties to purify their water, and here lies the problem.
Harmful contaminants like E.Coli, Manganese, Iron etc. are often present, and traditional pruifiers like UV and Reverse Osmosis systems are no match, especially when the weather is bad, leaving contaminants in the water suply. Accessing safe water off grid is a big problem in rural communities community.
To support off grid homes and businesses without access to reliable drinking water, Novus have developed a high-speed yet low-energy distillation technology, capable of treating previously untreatable sources consistently, to higher standards, with no consumable parts. The under sink purifier provides certainty of water supply, time-after-time, and reduces reliance on high carbon plastic bottled water.
- Higher contaminant removal regardless of source
- Low maintenance time and costs
- No consumable parts, and no chemical additives
- Consistent water quality that does not degrade over time
