Why Water Disinfection is Important
Many consumers are concerned about the quality of drinking water. In emerging countries these concerns may be due to the water infrastructure, but the problem is also prevalent in western countries.

With an increased awareness of the dangers of unpurified water among consumers, people are increasingly relying on their own residential filters, regardless of whether there is a public infrastructure in place to decontaminate water.

How Philips InstantTrust Works
Philips InstantTrust disinfects water as its being dispensed, up to 4 liters/minute, its simple and quick disinfection process is ideal for water dispensing solutions such as OASIS’ bottle refill stations and water coolers. Its unique design works independently of water temperature, disinfecting both hot and cold water on-demand.
