"Water quality can have an impact on your UV Quartz Sleeve and result in it becoming fouled with dirt, scaling, stains or scratches."

It’s purpose is to act as a protective shield, preventing water from coming in contact with the electrically charged UV lamp. Quartz sleeves are located within the stainless steel chamber that that is part of most residential and commercial UV systems.

Many people are not aware of the protective quartz sleeve in their UV system, which is critical for water disinfection.

Deciding Where to Purchase a UV Lamp

Deciding Where to Purchase a UV Lamp

"A proper replacement UV lamp for your system should have manufacturer’s logos on the packaging and be sold by a company who can assist you with installation instructions, returns or any other questions you may have."

As the popularity of UV systems have increased, there has been an influx of “knock off” or non manufacturer replacement UV lamps (bulbs) on the market, which can compromise the output of the system and consequently water safety. A good retailer of replacement UV lamps should clearly state supporting information on their website which reflects the manufacturer’s information properly.  

Do not take a chance with a UV lamp that could compromise the water safety in your home, business or cottage.

Risks to Water Quality - UV Systems

“Too often home owners trust the water implicitly when a Residential UV System is installed.”

When you purchased a UV System it was to protect the water in your home, cottage or business from bacteria present in water. It is likely that no one informed you of the risk associated with Power Outages or Proper Maintenance and the assumption is made that if the power light is on, the system is working properly and treating the water. This is not always the case.

There are many risks for water cross contamination in a home.

Understanding Your UV System

“Trusted for bacteria removal, do you know what is required?”

Over the last 25 years the use of Ultra Violet Disinfection Systems has become common place for keeping bacteria out of rural water supplies. If you own a home in the country, it is very likely that a UV System (also known as Blue Light or Sterilizer) is installed either at the kitchen sink or where the water enters the house.

All ultra violet disinfection systems require proper maintenance and setup to be effective.
