Small traces of contaminants (such as disease-causing bacteria, viruses, algae, fungi, and protozoa -- including Cryptosporidium and Giardia) can be found in untreated water. These pathogenic microbes must be treated before use. High doses of ultraviolet light energy at a wavelength of 254 nanometers destroys pathogenic microbes by disabling their reproductive process. Without the ability to reproduce, the microbe is harmless and is considered dead. The process of disinfection is a positive alternative to using environmentally-harmful chemicals.

Depending upon how dirty your water is, you may have to wipe the bulb off periodically. If you have a reverse osmosis system, the UV system should be installed after the R.O. system. On average, the bulbs need to be changed about once a year.

Shipping is extra (usually under $20). We do not add a handling fee.
