How it works
How does Sensiblue work?
Sensiblue is an appliance that purifies water with the aid of salt. As the water runs through the appliance, its flow produces a small amount of electricity that activates the salt, which in turn disinfects the water. This does not alter the water's taste.
Sensiblue, as opposed to UV and ozone, has the ability to disinfect water for a longer period of time. That is why Sensiblue can successfully claim to be able to counteract a range of bacteria and viruses, e.g. the Legionella (Legionnaires Disease) and E. Coli (food poisoning) bacteria and Cholera.
The appliance has been fitted with an indicator light. A green light indicates that the water is safe, a red light indicates that the appliance's salt levels need to be replenished (one full salt unit is enough to disinfect 30,000 litres of water). Additional salt units are always available from your Sensiblue supplier.
Better safe, than sorry.
Sensiblue kills bacteria and viruses at an early stage, but what exactly are they?
Bacteria are unicellular organisms. They are similar to human cells, but smaller in size. If observed under a microscope their appearance is sphere- or rod-like. Some bacteria, such as intestinal bacteria that aid digestion, are very important to humans. Many of them are harmless and we even carry quite a lot of them on our bodies. Others can cause serious health problems, e.g. salmonella, Coxiella burnetii (causes Q fever) or meningococcus (causes meningitis).
Viruses are smaller than bacteria and a great deal smaller than human cells. As a result, they are unable to survive by themselves and require a host cell to survive and multiply. Antibiotics are unable to counter viruses.
