Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CLEARING WATER FROM MICRO-ORGANISMS, AND WATER SUPPLY SYSTEM AND SHOWER UNIT PROVIDED WITH SUCH APPARATUS
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL POUR PURIFIER L'EAU DES MICRO-ORGANISMES ET SYSTEME D'AMENEE D'EAU ET UNITE DE DOUCHE MUNIS DE CET APPAREIL
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention relates to a method for clearing water in a water supply system from micro-organisms, such as Legionella. The water is thereto first filtered to retain a substantial amount of the micro-organisms, and subsequently radiated to inactivate micro-organisms that may still remain in the water, wherein said radiating step acts on the water at least as this water leaves the water supply system through a supply opening, such as a shower head, sprinkler, irrigation nozzle or the like. The invention furthermore relates to an apparatus for clearing water supplied by a water supply system from micro-organisms, a water supply system provided with such apparatus and a shower unit comprising an apparatus according to the invention.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé pour purifier l'eau dans un système d'amenée d'eau de micro-organismes tels que Legionella. L'eau est d'abord filtrée pour retenir une quantité importante de micro-organismes puis irradiée à des fins d'inactivation des micro-organismes qui peuvent encore rester dans l'eau, ledit stade d'irradiation agit sur l'eau au moins pendant que cette eau sort du système d'amenée d'eau via une ouverture d'amenée, telle qu'une tête de douche, un sprinkler, une buse d'irrigation ou similaire. L'invention concerne aussi un appareil pour alimenter l'eau amenée par un système d'amenée d'eau des micro-organismes, un système d'amenée d'eau muni de cet appareil et une unité de douche comprenant un appareil de l'invention.
