Single-celled organisms (singular form=bacterium) which lack well-defined nuclear membranes and other specialized functional cell parts and reproduce by cell division or spores. Bacteria may be free-living organisms or parasites. Bacteria (along with fungi) are decomposers that break down the wastes and bodies of dead organisms, making their components available for reuse. Bacterial cells range from about 1 to 10 microns in length and from 0.2 to 1 micron in width. They exist almost everywhere on earth. Despite their small size, the total weight of all bacteria in the world likely exceeds that of all other organisms combined.
The Effects Of Bacteria In Your Water
Drinking or bathing in water with bacteria can be unhealthy. There are many different kinds of bacteria that live in water and thus most water tests only test for Escherichia-Coli and Coliform. Many different sickness and illnesses stem from bacteria in your water.

With the installation of an Ultraviolet Disinfection Unit your water can be safe for drinking, cooking, bathing, and regular, every day use.
