Although persistence in drinking-water is possible, there is no evidence from surrogate human coronaviruses that they are present in surface or groundwater sources or transmitted through contaminated drinking water. The COVID-19 virus is an enveloped virus, with a fragile outer membrane. Generally, enveloped viruses are less stable in the environment and are more susceptible to oxidants, such as chlorine. ...... In places where centralized water treatment and safe piped water supplies are not available, a number of household water treatment technologies are effective in removing or destroying viruses, including boiling or using high-performing ultrafiltration or nanomembrane filters, solar irradiation and, in non-turbid waters, UV irradiation and appropriately dosed free chlorine.

Many disinfection solutions for dental unit water systems often involve the use of questionable chemicals.
In Denmark and other countries, chemicals containing silver nanoparticles are widely used. These substances are under strict surveillance throughout the EU.
In addition to their questionable effect, the patient and not least the dentist will inhale silver nanoparticles. The consequences for the patient are insignificant due to the short period of exposure.
However, dentists and dental assistants inhale this substance for years without any certainty that they and their patients are fully protected from Legionella and other dangerous bacteria.
Adept Water Technologies A/S has a fully implemented ISO 13485 system, which covers the design, development and production of active devices for disinfection of process water in dental unit water lines.
This disinfection is achieved using our own patented system, the BacTerminator® Dental, which is sold through distributors worldwide. As well as producing the system, we also have extensive knowledge of microbial contamination of dental unit water lines. This means that we can provide our distributors with the knowhow and equipment that make them the ideal partner for you as a dentist.
However, if you have problems you are always welcome to contact us directly. We will do our best to help you and will put you in touch with a trained distributor.
