Homeowners who want to drink purified water may wonder about the benefits of ultraviolet light water treatment system installation. Let’s take a look at how UV light water treatment systems work in the home, and what advantages having one of these systems installed for you carries.
How Does UV Light Treatment for Water Work?
Unlike chemical water treatment processes (chlorine, ozone, iodine, bromine), UV light disinfection is a physical disinfection process that rids the water of impurities—almost as if you were to boil it or pass the water through fine filtration. Nothing needs to be added to the water to purify it, instead, a specific measurement of energy from the UV lamp targets microorganisms in the water supply rendering them inactive and not harmful.
Benefits of Ultraviolet Light Treatment
There are numerous benefits to having an ultraviolet light treatment system installed, beyond just knowing your water has been purified.
- UV light water treatment systems don’t require filters or cartridges that need to be replaced on a regular basis, which means less hassle for you and less potential handling of chemicals.
- The purification process for UV light happens virtually immediately upon contact of the lamps with the water, so there will be no waiting period or filtering period before your water is ready to drink.
- As UV light treatment does not affect the chemical makeup of your water, there will be no change in taste, small or color of your water.
- There are no disinfection by-products or excess water waste with this method of disinfection, so it’s considered more environmentally friendly than other disinfection processes.
