What Is Bore Water?

Bore water is sourced from underground reservoirs through a borehole or well. Such water is vital in areas where surface water is scarce.

Treating bore water for drinking and non-drinking uses supports sustainable water management and contributes to long-term environmental conservation.

What are other significant benefits of treating bore water?


  • Health and safety. Removed contaminants make treated bore water safe for drinking, cooking, and bathing.
  • Water conservation. Reduced dependence on municipal water supplies, which is especially crucial in drought-prone areas. Also, natural water bodies are preserved.
  • Cost-effectiveness. Potentially more cost-effective over time compared to relying solely on municipal water.


  • Reliable water source. Consistent water supply for business operations, agriculture, and manufacturing.
  • Quality control. Enables businesses to manage the water quality specific to their needs, such as food production.
  • Environmental responsibility. Reduced environmental footprint due to lowered demand on local water resources and ecosystems.

Do your bit for our earth by embracing bore water treatment to conserve precious water resources and contribute to a sustainable future.

How Do UV Guard’s Bore Water Treatment Systems Work?

When water passes through UV Guard's bore water treatment systems, it's exposed to ultraviolet light. This UV light neutralises 99.9% of harmful microorganisms like bacteria and viruses in the water. It does so by damaging their DNA, which prevents them from reproducing and causing havoc with your water and, in turn, your health.

Bore water treated this way can often be safe for drinking, but it depends on the water's initial quality. While UV disinfection can kill bacteria and viruses, it doesn't remove chemical contaminants or heavy metals.

If the bore water contains these elements, additional treatment methods, like filtration through cartridge and bag water filters, automatic backwashing screen filters, or reverse osmosis, may be needed to make it safe for drinking. You should always test the water before and after treatment to ensure it meets safety standards for drinking.

Using UV light for bore water treatment is a standout disinfection method as it doesn't involve chemicals.

What are the benefits of chemical-free drinking water treatments?

  • Safety: Reduced health risks associated with chemical exposure.
  • Environmentally friendly: No harmful by-products are released into the environment.
  • Taste and odour: Preserved natural water taste and odour.
  • Low maintenance: Generally requires less maintenance than chemical-based systems.
  • Cost-effective: Reduced need to purchase and handle chemicals.
  • Sustainability: Aligns with eco-friendly practices and goals.

Bore water can also be treated for non-drinkable purposes in commercial and residential settings, including

  • Toilet flushing
  • Doing laundry
  • Watering plants and gardens
  • Water features
  • Cleaning cars and outdoor surfaces
  • Refilling swimming pools and spas
  • Agricultural irrigation
  • Commercial cooling systems
  • Industrial processes, such as manufacturing or cleaning

Municipal or main water supplies come with usage charges, so using bore water for these tasks can significantly lower your water bills. You’ll also save valuable drinking water. It’s a win-win!
