Whole House Water UV

Hands down the best way to eliminate Bacteria, Viruses and Contaminants from your Water in a clean way.

Factors That Affect UV Dose

Different factors affect UV dose and UV’s ability to inactivate organisms in the water. If there is turbidity (large amounts of particles) or water hardness, microorganisms can “hide” behind these particles. This hampers UV transmittance (UVT), the amount of UV that penetrates the water. With a low UVT, “hidden” microorganisms don’t receive the required dose of UV light to deactivate their DNA, and the water isn’t properly treated.

The ultraviolet (UV) treatment process is an extremely quick physical process. UV light mutates and/or degrades DNA, the part of the cell that instructs an organism on how to function and reproduce.

When DNA is damaged, the organism cannot function, reproduce, or cause infection because its “instructions” are garbled or missing. It is rendered harmless and eventually dies.

In the UV treatment process, water is purified as it runs through a stainless-steel chamber (also called a “reactor”) that contains a special UV-producing lamp. As the water flows past the lamp, the microbes in the water receive a lethal dose of UV. People can then confidently drink the water. Different organisms require different levels of UV energy (known as the UV dose) to disrupt their DNA.
