Ultraviolet Sterilization Effectively Kills Bacteria, Viruses and Parasites such as Cryptosporidium & Giardia. Chlorination only keeps bacteria at low levels. The difference between Chlorination and UV is the difference between Sanitization and Sterilization. UV Sterilization provides complete protection for your family from Microbes in your water.
It is estimated that seven to 30 million Americans develop a gastrointestinal illness from drinking contaminated water. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates 900 to 1,000 deaths occur from microbial illnesses from US drinking water. You can Protect Your Families' health, simply, easily and inexpensively by adding a UV Sterilization System to your home.
The quality of drinking water can change with time and become contaminated with harmful bacteria. VIQUA's Home and Tap families of ultraviolet (UV) disinfection systems offer a reliable, economical and chemical-free way to safeguard your drinking water. Our systems have been designed and tested to ensure quality drinking water is at everyone's finger tips. Regardless of your need, there is a VIQUA system to suit your requirements. Our Tap family — point of use systems that install under the sink, or "at the tap" — offers systems for water flows of 1 gpm to 4 gpm. Our Home family — point of entry systems that are plumbed in where your water enters your home - offers systems that range in flow rates from just 6 gpm for a small home or cottage, up to 18 gpm for a larger home or even a small business.
Where can UV be used?
Short answer: everywhere! UV disinfection of drinking water has been growing steadily in popularity, as people search for a chemical-free option for ensuring their water is safe from microbiological contaminants.
The VH150 drinking water system has been designed and tested to ensure quality drinking water is at everyone's finger tips.
All UV sterilizers required sediment pre-filtration to reduce or eliminate the possibility that a targeted contaminant could "hide" behind a sediment particle in the "shadow" of the UV light and therefore not receive a full dose of UV light. Accordingly, the manufacturer strongly recommends sediment pre-filtration down to a level of 5 microns or smaller.
Water exceeding 120 ppm in hardness (7 grains per gallon) should be softened to reduce the risk that hard water mineral scale will build-up on the UV sleeve thereby reducing UV light distribution into the UV chamber. Similarly, iron levels exceeding 0.3 ppm or manganese levels exceeding 0.05 ppm should also be treated to prevent staining of the UV sleeve.
Note: It is recommended that a 5 micron or better sediment pre-filter be installed ahead of the purifier, Click Here to see our Sediment Filters.
