How does a UV water purifier work?

Ultraviolet light deactivates microorganisms' DNA, preventing reproduction and disease.

Installing a Pre-Filter before the UV System

Before installing a UV system, use a sediment filter (typically 5 microns) to ensure clear water.

This prevents sediment from blocking UV light, ensuring effective disinfection of all microorganisms.

When to Replace a  UV Lamp

After installation, replace the UV lamp as advised by the manufacturer, usually every 12 months.

Most UV lamps last around 9,000 hours.

A reminder light or alarm signals replacement, as effectiveness declines by up to 60% post-lifespan.

Things to Consider when Installing a UV Purifier

Locate the UV unit after other water treatment systems.

1

Mount the UV water purifier to a wall. 

2

Install a shut-off valve on either side of the unit.
