Do I need a UV water filter?

If your household water is from a 'private water supply', for example a well, spring or borehole and you want to feel confident about it's safety or have been made aware of a problem with 'bad' micro-organisms in your water; then installing a uv water filter is your best option.

UV water treatment doesn't restrict your water flow and as private water supply tends to be low pressure, a uv water filter is perfect. You'll need an electricity supply for this type of system.

All of our uv water filters have a stainless steel casing with a removable glass lamp, which you'll need to replace every 12 months as a minimum. We'll send you an email reminder so you don't have to worry about forgetting!

 

How does UV work?

You're exposed to uv rays or light every time you step outside, and the sunnier it is the more uv there is. You can't see it but it's responsible for causing sunburn.

UV light plays havoc with the DNA of micro-organisms. When your water flows through a uv water filter, the bacteria in your water is exposed to the uv light which attacks the bacterias genetic code and renders them useless, so they can't function and reproduce. The uv process is simple and highly effective, killing 99.99% of harmful micro-organisms without the need for you to add chemicals into your water.

UV water filters are one of the safest ways to disinfect your water without using chemicals such as chlorine.

 

What's so good about a UV water filter?

When you're choosing to invest in your property and are considering buying a uv water filter, we feel that it's important to be share the advantages and disadvantages. You can clearly see that the advantages outweigh the disadvantages, which is why our uv water filters are so popular. They definitely solve problems.

Advantages Disadvantages
Destroys 99.99% of bacteria. UV light doesn't remove other contaminants from your water such as heavy metals, salts, chlorine, limescale, petroleum or pharmaceuticals.
Environmentally friendly as no chemicals involved. You need electricity.
Works day and night 24/7; keeping your water safe. You need a pre-filter or muck gets onto the quartz sleeve and the uv light can't penetrate to kill all those bad bacteria.
You only need to replace the lamp every 12 months or so.  
You don't need a holding tank; water flows straight through the system.  
Low electrical needs so cost effective.  
Doesn't waste any water unlike an ro system.  
No harmful chemicals so it's safe.  
Once installed, it's low maintenance.  
No dirty parts to dispose of.  
More effective than chlorine or chloramines, especially on some water borne cysts.  
Doesn't change the taste and odour of your water.  

 

UV water treatment kills any harmful micro-organisms that are present in your water, including bacteria, viruses and cysts. If these micro-organisms remained in your water, it could cause severe illness. UV water treatment does not remove dissolved organics, inorganic compounds or particles in the water, so you would need to install a pre-filter to remove sediment prior to your water going through the uv system.

What will a UV water filter kill?

You can wave goodbye to the following:

  • viruses
  • cysts
  • salmonella
  • ecoli
  • typhoid fever
  • polio
  • cholera
  • infectious hepatitis
  • bacteria
  • coliform
  • giardia
  • cryptosporidium
  • flu
  • dysentery
  • meningitis

A uv water filter won't remove things like heavy metals, limescale, chlorine, pertroleum products or pharmaceuticals. So, you'll need a pre-filter. A pre-filter will also protect the quartz sleeve so that the uv light can penetrate and do it's job. Without a pre-filter, your water would be murky and form a coating on the quartz sleeve rendering the whole process useless.

Choosing a UV water filter

When choosing which uv water filter to buy; you need to know your water flow rate as the model must be powerful enough to treat the water flow that you have. The flow rate is determined by how many people are in your household and the demand required.

UV water treatment is quick, incredibly reliable, safe, clean, easy to maintain; without much effort on your part. Your uv system will only require a yearly change of lamp which is as simple as changing a lightbulb, and also a new pre-filter cartridge every six months or so depending on how many people are in your household.
