The new LCD display makes all important system information available at a glance.
UV disinfection is safe, effective, economical, and best of all, does not add undesirable chemicals to your water like chlorine or chloramine.
Why UV? – UV Advantages
UV water treatment offers many advantages for the treatment of microbiological contaminants like bacteria (including coliform and e.coli), viruses, molds, algae, yeast, and oocysts like cryptosporidium and giardia. Every year, these contaminants are responsible for thousands of serious illnesses due to the failure of city treatment plants or consumption of untreated well or surface water.
Unlike other disinfection options, UV sterilizers do not add any chemicals to the water, do not produce harmful by-products (THMs and HAs), and do not alter the taste, pH, mineral content, or other properties of the water. Accordingly, in addition to producing safe drinking water, UV disinfection is not harmful to your plumbing and septic system. Furthermore, it is easy and cost-effective to install and maintain without any special training.

These concerns have arisen due to several high-profile cases of contamination in city water supplies across the continent, some of which have resulted in illness and even death. UV disinfection is a great option to provide this extra level of insurance in your water supply.
