How Does Ultraviolet Disinfection (UV) Work?

UV water disinfection is a natural, environmentally friendly process which does not add any chemicals into your water and does not change the water chemistry.

Ultraviolet light energy inactivates harmful microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses, effectively preventing them from causing illness. The pathogens are destroyed in the time water passes through the disinfection chamber.


It is necessary for the UV light to have contact with the microorganisms. Water quality will adversely affect the efficacy of any UV disinfection system. Therefore, your source water needs to fall into certain water quality parameters in order for effective UV disinfection to occur. Therefore pre-filtration is of great importance.
