Testing results from the University of Arizona carried out by Dr. Gerba and his team prove the effectiveness of Firewall against the human form of COVID-19.
Firewall put to the test against COVID-19
Waterlogic’s patented Firewall technology has long been recognised for its ability to purify water up to 99.99% virus-free and 99.9999% bacteria-free. Firewall was rigorously tested against the human form of COVID-19 by a team of microbiologists from the University of Arizona led by Dr. Gerba, internationally known for his methodologies for pathogen detection in water and food.
I have tested the Waterlogic Firewall machine and can confirm it removes COVID-19.

Firewall is 99.999% effective in eliminating COVID-19 from your drinking water
The official testing results from the University of Arizona carried out by Dr. Gerba and his team prove the effectiveness of Firewall against COVID-19.
The Firewall treated water samples showed an average colony reduction of over 5 log (99.9998%).
These results demonstrate that Firewall is effective in inactivating the human form of the COVID-19 strain with a reduction of over 99.999%.
The world’s first COVID-secure range of UVC water coolers
Peace of mind guaranteed for the 50 million people around the world who rely on Waterlogic dispensers to provide safe and hygienic access to great-tasting drinking water.
How Firewall technology works:
Unprotected pipes expose water to the risk of being infected by viruses and bacteria from the outside. Firewall disinfects the water from the building supply by exposing it to a high dose of UVC radiation as it flows down then up through the unique double-helix spiral. Any pathogen present in the water is then deactivated, as its DNA gets permanently damaged, and it becomes harmless.
Firewall’s intense UVC light also acts as a powerful barrier, stopping viruses and bacteria from entering the system and sanitises the nozzle to prevent cross-contamination between users.
Purified water on demand that’s safe and delicious to drink.
