Ultraviolet Light Purifies Water for Pets
NatureSpa is a new type of pet fountain that uses UV Rays to clean the water. Now, we haven’t personally tried this fountain, but we do want to let you know about it.
The Nature Spa Pet Watering Station circulates water through a submersible pump to produce a stream of flowing water for pets. Designed for cats and smaller dogs, the water station offers state of the art UV filtration, a low water shut-off and a blue LED light for nighttime visibility. The patented, simple design operates on low voltage and features an energy saving pump.
For those who don’t know, UV sterilization is also known as Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI). This is a method of disinfection that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA.
UVGI is a very effective method of destroying germs, bacteria and viruses. It’s often used to purify water and disinfect medical tools. (We’re really hoping to see this technology play out in the litterbox market soon).
The Nature Spa Pet Watering Station was developed by American Valley Pet. Using a submersible pump, the water is allowed to flow through a specialized nozzle to produce a stream of flowing water. The LED light allows for nighttime visibility (and also makes a fun night light for you), and the patented design operates on low-voltage and an energy-saving pump.
We’re very excited to see this new technology in play and we hope you’ll give this particular unit a try soon!
