Frequently Asked Questions
Anyone who receives their water from a private well or surface water should disinfect before consumption. The UV light works by the disease causing the micro organisms being exposed to the UV light, in turn their DNA is disrupted, disabling the micro organism ability to replicate and cause illness.
The UV system uses about as much electrical energy as a 40 watt light bulb.
Yes, the UV water purification system needs to operate for several minutes to reach the full UV output. Excessive on/off cycling of the UV water purification system will greatly reduce it’s life expectancy. Also by having the UV water purification system operating continuously you minimize the chance of consuming untreated, unsafe water.
UV disinfection should always be the last step to completing your water treatment system. The UV system should be installed so that both hot and cold water distribution receive treated water.
Over time the UV output of the UV water purification system decreases. Approximate life expectancy of a UV lamp is around 9000 hours. After 9000 hours the water quality output decreases and infection performance becomes unreliable.
Reverse osmosis (RO) systems work to improve the smell and taste of your drinking water, which is what gives you a crisp, clean taste. RO is a treatment process that pushes water through a semi-permeable membrane. Only the water filters through, leaving behind any impurities which are then flushed away. The result is water that is 99% pure.
There are two common types of water softeners. Most water softeners used today are called ion exchange systems. However, the one most sold uses the demand initiated regeneration (DIR) water softener. DIR softeners monitor your usage over a period of time, and regenerate only when needed. With the ion exchange technique, hard irons like calcium and magnesium are replaced with salt ions, like sodium and potassium. This is called recharging, which is what softens your water.
