Risks to Water Quality - UV Systems
Posted by Jeff Wahl on 6/9/2016 to UV System Education
“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
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.
