About us

The aim of SOL-UV® as a business is to help reduce the pressure on our environment. We do this by reducing the need for chemicals and other toxic substances. Our systems and procedures consequently also avoid any disconcerting by-products, which usually give reasons for health concerns. That’s how we can guarantee outstanding water quality and the best possible protection from harmful bacteria and germs. In addition we help to save water and energy in the process by using the latest technologies.

Another one of our aims is to bring a greater understanding of the water treatment process to a wide range of people. We want to shed light on how to use simple processes and procedures and how technical, chemical and biological aspects are connected. To do this, our water expert Walter Polak and other engineers from the group hold regular seminars and presentations.

Our contribution


Thanks to our long-standing experience in water treatment and disinfection, our staffs’ vast knowledge of the market, our international connections and our innovative products and procedures, we are among the top players in the water treatment sector. Our considerable number of patents and exclusive rights for water treatment and disinfection equipment and procedures underlines this.

In cooperation with our expert planners and specialised production companies we offer our customers exclusively tailor-made products, which are stringently tested, economic and easy to use and maintain. In addition we look after our partners and train and assist them, depending on their needs, in regular intervals to guarantee their quality of work and level of expertise.
