Bacteria-Killing UV Water Pitcher Is An Unfortunate Reminder Of What You Might Be Drinking

The Restore Clean Water System from HoMedics claims that its built-in ultraviolet lights will kill 99.9999% of bacteria, 99.99% of viruses and 99.95% of microbial cysts in your drinking water. Wait, what's in my water?

Chalk this up to one of those ignorance is bliss situations, maybe, but I don't really care that this pitcher improves on Brita's technique by adding a second step of UV purification to the initial filtration process. What I care about is preserving the illusion that the water I'm drinking is pure and healthy, and that upon viewing it under a microscope I would only see its awesome purity in greater magnification.

But if you're a pitcher's-half-empty type, and you can't bear the thought of drinking another glass with all that stuff floating in there, you can find out more or place your order for the $US99 Restore Clean Water System over at HoMedics. [Dvice]
