How Often Should a UV Lamp be Changed?
Viqua UV lamps are engineered to last for one year or 9000 hours. Many Viqua UV systems have built-in diagnostics to signal a warning when it’s time to replace the lamp.
UV lamps do not burn out – they solarize. This means that they gradually lose their light wave intensity to about 60% of what a new UV bulb provides. So even though your UV bulb may still illuminate brightly, it is not generating sufficient UVC energy to disinfect water properly and should be replaced. It is important to change the lamp on time so the UV system can effectively protect against viruses and other waterborne microbes.
