How Does UV Sterilization Technology Work?

UV (Ultraviolet) sterilization technology is a highly effective method for treating water that uses ultraviolet light to disinfect and eliminate harmful microorganisms. Here’s how UV sterilization technology works!

Step by Step: How UV Water Treatment Works

  1. UV Light Bulb: The UV water treatment system uses a UV lamp or bulb that emits a specific wavelength of ultraviolet light. This light is really good at destroying microorganisms.
  2. Shining Light on the Water: The UV bulb is put in a container that your home’s water supply flows through. As the water moves through this container, it gets exposed to the strong UV light from the bulb.
  3. Killing Microorganisms: The UV light goes into the cells of microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, algae, and tiny creatures called protozoa that might be in the water. It disrupts their ability to replicate, preventing them from reproducing and making them incapable of causing infections or diseases.
  4. Making Water Safe: The main job of UV treatment is to inactivate harmful pathogens, rather than removing them physically from the water, so they are no longer a threat to our health.
  5. Always On: UV systems work all the time, so whenever you need water, it’s there and safe to use, no need for big tanks or waiting around!
  6. No Chemicals or Byproducts: Unlike some other ways to clean water, like using chemicals, UV treatment doesn’t put anything extra into the water. It also doesn’t produce any harmful byproducts, making it an environmentally-friendly and safe water treatment method.
  7. Taking Care of the UV System: Just like a car needs regular check-ups, the UV system needs some care, too. You have to clean a special glass part called the quartz sleeve and change the UV bulb when the manufacturer says so. This helps keep the system working well over time!

Optimal Water Quality for UV Sterilization

For the best performance of your UV system, ensure that your water meets the following recommended levels:

  • Iron: Less than 0.3 ppm (0.3 mg/L)
  • Hardness*: Less than 7 GPG (120 mg/L)
  • Turbidity: Less than 1 NTU
  • Manganese: Less than 0.05 ppm (0.05 mg/L)
  • Tannins: Less than 0.1 ppm (0.1 mg/L)
  • UV Transmittance: Greater than 75% (Contact us for recommendations if UVT is below 75%)

If you’re unsure about your home’s water quality, reach out to the water treatment experts at Mink Plumbing today!

UV as Part of Your Whole-Home Water Treatment System

If your water chemistry contains levels above the recommended limits, it’s essential to address these issues before installing your UV sterilization system.

At Mink, our experienced water treatment technicians can assess your water quality parameters. Proper pre-treatment is a crucial step to ensure your UV disinfection system functions as intended, delivering clean and safe water to your home.

It’s important to note that while UV sterilization technology is highly effective at killing microorganisms, it does not remove other types of contaminants from water, such as heavy metals, chemicals, or sediments.

Therefore, UV treatment is often used in conjunction with other water treatment methods, such as filtration or reverse osmosis, to address a broader range of water quality issues.

This combination of treatment methods ensures that water is both microbiologically safe and free from other impurities, providing clean and safe drinking water.
