I think much of the fuss about water quality, at least in the US, is just like the fuss over fuel additives. Its easy to scare people into thinking there is something bad in their water or diesel and that they should buy your product, and conveniently impossible to prove that their product does nothing useful at all. Now I'm not saying that a UV sterilizer doesn't sterilize, just that there needs to be something in the water to sterilize for it to be useful and worth buying.
Spot on!
