Benefits of a UV Water Purifier
Is UV Light Good for Drinking Water?
Treating water with Ultraviolet (UV) light is one of the MOST effective ways to address waterborne microorganisms. 99.99% of all bacteria and viruses in drinking water are destroyed by UV, without the need to add any harsh chemicals.
During the UV water disinfection process, water is exposed to UV light which disrupts the cell structure of the microbe and thus destroys harmful microorganisms, including Cryptosporidium and Giardia.
A UV disinfection system can protect household water 24/7. This continual treatment of all water entering the home by UV light disinfection can give a homeowner peace of mind. It also saves the homeowner from repeatedly having to test their water and shock the well with chemicals.

What are the Advantages of UV Water Treatment?
With ultraviolet sterilizers there are no disinfection byproducts, no added chemicals, and no wasted water.
Ultraviolet works night and day, 24/7 to consistently keep your water safe from harmful microbes.
UV light instantly kills 99.99% of waterborne microbes which means no waiting or long process.
The UV process takes up very little space. No holding tank is needed and essentially no water pressure is lost.
There are challenges with UV light water treatment that you should be aware of before purchasing:
UV light cannot remove all contaminants: UV can only remove waterborne microorganisms and cannot remove sediment, chlorine, lead, etc.
UV systems needs electricity to operate: Because UV needs power, it's not ideal for emergency water treatment or in back-country settings where power loss is common.
UV sterilizers do not improve taste of water: If your water smells or tastes bad, we recommend an RO drinking water system.
Prefiltration may be needed with a UV system: UV disinfection can only work if water is not murky. The "floaties" or suspended solids in water can block the light rays from reaching microbes in the water.
