Are the minerals causing a growing scale build-up inside and on your faucets? If so, there are some things you should know about UV water systems. UV water purification and filtration systems use ultraviolet light to destroy germs, bacteria, and other living organisms in the water. Here is all you need to know about this revolutionary form of water purification.
UV Water System:
Ultraviolet (UV) system is a water purification method that uses light to break down biological contaminants and disinfect the water. In the UV disinfection process, ultraviolet light at a wavelength of 254 nanometers damages the DNA of bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens, preventing them from reproducing. That’s basically what happens when you get too much sun and get a sunburn.
The water treatment system works by flowing water through a small chamber that contains one or more UV lamps, which are safe for human contact. It’s also an eco-friendly option that doesn’t use chemicals.
It has no toxic by-products or chemicals added to the treated water which makes it a very popular choice for treating drinking water. It is also used for disinfecting wastewater before it’s released back into the environment.
In addition, it is relatively easy to install and maintain as well as being economical. This makes it an even more attractive option.
On the downside, however, a UV system is only useful where there are microorganisms present in the first place. Hence, if you have been using your current system for a while and haven’t noticed any problems with bacteria in your water, then you may not need this treatment method.
