How it Works
Let’s start with a little background on ultraviolet light!
Most of us are familiar with the UV-A and UV-B bands of light naturally produced by our sun. We use UV-A & B blocking sunscreens and wear UV-A & B protective sunglasses to shield ourselves from these potentially harmful rays. But did you know there is also a third band of naturally occurring UV light, called UV-C?
You may be in the dark about UV-C light because it is filtered out by the ozone in our atmosphere and never makes it to the earth’s surface. And it’s a good thing too! UV-C light is germicidal by nature, able to obliterate any cell’s DNA by passing through the cell’s nucleus and colliding with the DNA inside. Once the DNA is shattered, harmful microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, protozoa, or fungi are effectively neutralized, no longer able to reproduce or grow and cause infection.
Harnessing germicidal light to kill the harmful microorganisms in your water is where REMUV comes in.
3 steps to use
The REMUV System
We designed the REMUV™ water purification system to be superior to any traditional handheld UV water purification system on the market. To do this, we ditched the obsolete mercury bulb, and equipped REMUV™ with three, state-of-the-art, UV-C LEDs.
The use of UV-C LEDs allowed us to go smaller, creating an ultra-lightweight yet rugged, hands-free system, packed with intuitive features that take the guess work out of purifying your water! Thanks to its patent-pending “Smart Sense” technology REMUV™ automatically gets to work the moment it hits your water. Floating at the top of your container REMUV™ instinctively aligns its three germicidal LED’s downward, firing its germ-destroying UV-C light through your water, disinfecting every drop. And just so there’s never a question about when your water is safe to drink, REMUV has three indicators on top that give you real-time feedback about the status of your treatment.
For use on-the-go, REMUV’s rugged carrying case comes equipped with an internal battery backup and integrated waterproof micro USB for recharging the system from any power source. And with a total treatment capacity per charge of 31 gallons (120 liters), capacitive touch battery level indicator, and 6-foot paracord retrieval lanyard, REMUV’s recharging case will help you reach that extra mile!
