It is strongly recommended (by all UV manufacturers) for maximum efficiency of your UV Sterilization, that you pre-filter your water with a 5 Micron sediment cartridge.
Do not connect plastic pipe or tubing directly to the UV system because the UV light will break down plastic over time. The best way to make the connection is with Dielectric Unions that allow for a connection from stainless steel to copper, that will not corrode.
Ultraviolet light is split into several different ranges: (near the visible light range) UV-A, UV-B, UV-C, Vacuum-UV (near the x-ray range). The UV-B range is what causes sunburn on humans. UV water purifiers use the UV-C range because of its germicidal abilities. In this range the light light will break molecular bonds in the DNA of viruses and bacteria, rendering them unable to reproduce and effectively killing them.

UV Max 602856 Replacement Lamp
UV Max PRO Series Models Include UV Intensity Monitor, Timer, Alarm Reset, Lamp Life Display & Alert, Digital Display, Cooltouch Kit & Shut-off Valve as standard features.
All UV Max PRO Series Systems include all components and accessories needed for initial installation and use. These include UV Lamp, Power Supply, Quartz Sleeve & 316 Stainless Steel UV Reactor (Water Chamber).
UV Max Pro Series UV Systems treat the water for the whole home, eliminating 99.99% of bacteria and viruses including chlorine-resistant cysts that are not tested for in routine water tests (such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia)
The germicidal energy of ultraviolet light destroys harmful microorganisms by attacking their genetic core (DNA). This powerful dose of UV light eliminates their ability to reproduce, and the organisms simply die.
Water is purified by running it through a watertight chamber that contains an ultraviolet lamp. As water flows past, microorganisms are exposed to a lethal dose of germicidal UV energy.
Purification with the UV Max is a safe, natural process that adds no chemicals and does not affect the taste or odor of your water.
Specialized, high output UV lamps maximize the output of germicidal UV energy.
