Ultraviolet (UV) Sterilizer

Ultraviolet or UV disinfection are used in water purification treatment and is a highly effective means of neutralizing microbes and prolong the life of water without the use of chemicals. Ultraviolet (UV) rays penetrate harmful pathogens in water and destroy illness-causing microorganisms by attacking their genetic core (DNA).  If you are on a private water supply, it is your responsibility to ensure your water’s safety. An Ultraviolet Sterilizer kills the bacteria and microorganisms that can infest water after is has been treated. Installing a UV system on a municipal water supply provides peace of mind when aging municipal infrastructure fails.

Aging infrastructure in many cities can lead to an increase in possible contamination. Ultraviolet technology can give peace of mind, knowing that you’re protected from many of the culprits of water contamination. A UV water purification system effectively destroys 99.9% of waterborne microorganisms.

Advantages of using a Ultraviolet Water Sterilizer

  • Effective & Quick Process – Destroys 99.99% of microorganisms. Water flows through the system without need for holding tank or reaction times
  • Chemical Free, Safe & Clean – No chemicals required or dirty parts to dispose of.
  • Environmentally Friendly – UV is an environmentally friendly alternative to chlorine disinfection and has no disinfection byproducts.
  • Reliable & Essentially Trouble Free – Works night and day, 24/7, consistently keeping water safe. Once installed, annual service is usually all that is required.
  • Low Energy Use & Conserves Water – Low electrical needs and does not waste any water.

 Disadvantages of using a Ultraviolet Water Sterilizer

While there are many advantages of UV water treatment, some attention must be paid to the challenges it poses.

  • UV light is only able to eliminate microorganisms in water – UV technology does not remove any other contaminants from water such as heavy metals, salts, chlorine or man made substances like petroleum products or pharmaceuticals. Other filtration methods should be employed with UV to ensure that all contaminants are removed from the water.
  • UV light is only able to work if water is clear – If the water is murky or contains “floaties” a pre-filter should be used. UV light cannot effectively reach microorganisms because the rays are blocked by the other particles.
  • UV water systems need electricity to operate – A UV may not be suitable for all applications such as rural, emergency needs or survival needs if electricity is not available.

Most Ultraviolet water treatment systems require only an annual change of lamp, as simple as changing a light bulb and a periodic change of a filter cartridge that protects the lamp. Although the initial cost of some UV applications are a bit more than chlorination, the low operating costs make it pay for itself in no time.

Overall, UV water treatment is an outstanding way to meet your water purification needs. UV has proven to be one of the most reliable, quick, and cost-effective methods for disinfecting water at both point-of-use (kitchen tap) and point-of-entry (whole-house) applications.
