Frequently Asked Quetions
Who should consider a UV disinfection system?
We recommend UV disinfection for families living in areas with frequent boil water alerts, homes with private wells, and homes with drinking water that contains high total coliform bacteria.
Will UV treatment get rid of iron bacteria and/or sulfur-reducing bacteria?
We do not recommend UV for the disinfection of water with iron or sulfur bacteria. With over 600 different types of iron and sulfur bacteria, and the jelly-like membrane the bacteria have, the UV light would not be able to properly penetrate the membrane of the bacteria to disinfect the water. Consider a chlorine injection system with retention to kill iron or sulfur bacteria.
Why is it recommended to pre-treat the water before installing a UV Premium System?
We recommend a 5 micron sediment pre-filter to remove dirt and debris. The quality of your water can affect the dosage of UV disinfection the system provides and can cause premature "sleeve fouling," which will require the sleeve to be cleaned more often and may damage the UV sleeve. Pretreatment safeguards against these possibilities.
Smart, sustainable solutions to water treatment issues are the heart of everything we do at Pentair. We developed our line of UV Disinfection Systems for families with private wells or in areas prone to water boil alerts so they can always see the glass as “full-full” of cleaner, better-tasting water.
Equip your home with a premium pathogen solution to combat organic contaminants. Pack a punch against microorganisms with a UV Disinfection System that renders the DNA of bacteria, cysts, and viruses unable to reproduce, and therefore unable to get you and your family ill.
The NSF, a non-profit organization, certifies select Pentair UV Disinfection Systems to reduce bacteria and cysts such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia by mechanical means. Premium systems include further certifications for trusted performance and peace of mind.
