Bacteria Doesn’t Stand A Chance Against UV

Ultraviolet (UV) light is found on the light spectrum just below visible light. Its natural power has germicidal properties, allowing it to be used as a pathogen reduction method that does not require the use of salt or harmful chemicals. For this reason, UV is an ideal solution for homeowners on well water, which typically sees higher levels of bacteria and viruses as a result of environmental impacts. Enter the Pentair Standard UV System. Don’t let its small footprint fool you, this system is certified to be 99.9% effective at reducing waterborne pathogens and uses as little energy as a 25-or 40-watt lightbulb. It features an interactive LCD display, allowing you to view lamp life, intensity status, troubleshooting steps, and more. Other features include:

  • 9-16 GPM peak flow – ideal for most homes
  • UV sensor technology gives you real-time performance information
  • Indicator lights show the status of system components. Warning light alerts you when maintenance is required.
  • Safety cap prevents children from accessing the lamp or any of the electrical components
  • Lamp plug ensures that the UV lamp cannot be powered if it not in the chamber

Water Taste & Odor Not Affected


No Harmful Chemicals Required


Hassle-Free Maintenance


Inactivate Waterborne Pathogens

How it works

3 stage system

UV Lamp

UV disinfection inactivates bacteria, viruses and other pathogens by preventing them from reproducing. UV light penetrates and permanently alters the DNA of the microorganisms in a process called thymine dimerization. The microorganisms are inactivated and rendered unable to reproduce or infect. The disinfection process does not affect taste, color, or odor of your water.

Indicator Lights

Indicator lights on the system show the status of the system components. Warning lights appear when system maintenance is required.

Safety Cap

The safety cap prevents children from accessing the lamp or electrical components. The special lamp plug ensures that no one can power the UV lamp if it is not in the UV chamber.

LCD UV Display Screen

The display will count down to indicate when the lamp should be replaced. When 30 days remain, the lamp light will show yellow and the alarm will sound giving you time to order your new lamp.
