Ultraviolet Water Purifier Systems
Ultraviolet purification is a proven technology (EPA approved) that can protect your family from waterborne disease-causing microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, algae, and fungi. Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection works by delivering concentrated amounts of UV light energy to the reproductive mechanism of the microbe, effectively killing it. As water passes through the UV chamber, it instantly disinfects it. The only homeowner maintenance is to replace the bulb once per year.
Two types of UV purifiers are available - point-of-entry, which installs on your main water line to purify all the water in your home, and point-of-use, which purify water at a single faucet.
The Sterilight point-of-use ultraviolet purifiers manufactured by R-Can Environmental, Inc., can be used alone, or with combined with other filter configurations, see our water filter CATALOG. The stainless steel chamber has 1/4" MNPT ends. It carries a 7-year warranty on the chamber, 5 years on hardware, and 1 year on bulb.
Note: it is recommended that a 5 micron or better sediment prefilter be installed ahead of the purifier. Water that is over 7 grains per gallon hard should be softened ahead of the purifier. Iron should be less than 0.3 ppm.
