Does freezing water kill bacteria?

In an attempt to ward off illnesses caused by bacteria, people resort to all sorts of methods to sanitise water and make it safe for consumption. Boiling water, exposing it to UV lights and filtering it through special filter media are the most common ways to destroy disease-causing bacteria and viruses present in tap water. But what about freezing water? Can freezing water be an efficient way to kill bacteria?

Tell-tale signs that you may need a water filtering system

Without doubt, clean drinking water is indispensable in any household. Tap water isn’t inherently problematic, and it’s generally considered safe both for cooking and drinking. However, contaminants may find their way into your water supply through damaged or rusty pipes, and, unbeknownst to you, expose you to some harmful contaminants. Even if you don’t use tap water for drinking purposes, you’re probably using it for cooking or washing fruit and vegetables, or even for preparing coffee or tea. Of course, you could switch to bottled water and seemingly resolve your concerns about whether tap water is safe enough, or you could just as easily install a water filter system in your home and put any safety concerns to rest.

How to choose an UV water filter for your home?

Standard home water filtration systems may offer a certain level of protection against bacteria, however, water known to be more problematic from a microbiological standpoint is best treated with the help of an UV water filter. UV water filters are capable of eradicating 99.9% of bacteria in water, thus removing a wide range of water-borne pathogens, bacteria that cause gastrointestinal problems, viruses, and other harmful microorganisms. Exposure to UV lights renders microorganisms inactive by destroying their DNA, and preventing them from infecting or multiplying. All this is achieved without changing or influencing the taste of water in any way.
