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 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.
