Clear’s Hydro-Optic™ System is a state-of-the-art water treatment system that produces 99.99% microbiologically pure, pharmaceutical grade water at the tap. Our unique Total Internal Reflection™ technology maximizes the UV light’s rays by repeatedly reflecting them inside the chamber ensuring a more even UV dose distribution, leaving you with safe and healthy drinking water.
Since 2014, there have been 43 outbreaks of waterborne disease attributed to deficient water distribution systems, resulting in thousand of cases of illness. These outbreaks have resulted in as many as 44% of a city’s population becoming ill due to salmonella and E.Coli contamination.
The core of the system is a disinfection chamber made of quartz and surrounded by an air block. This configuration helps trap the UV light’s rays and forces them to repeatedly bounce inside the chamber in a phenomenon referred to as Total Internal Reflection (TIR). The ray’s long path inside the chamber creates a uniform UV dose distribution that reaches and inactivates microorganisms throughout the water running through the chamber.
In addition, our optical amplification mechanism recycles UV photons within the quartz disinfection chamber making them even more power-efficient and cost-effective than other systems.
