What is UV in Water Purifier (2023)

Let’s have a look at the UV water filtration system. Know some key information about UV water purifiers before purchasing one.

A UV water purifier filter is best for home use. Below 300 TDS level, it can kill the germs but not clean the contamination of the water. 

Why do you buy a UV water filter system for your house

A UV water purifier uses ultraviolet lamps and rays to treat microbiologically contaminated water (a radiation light for germs). This UV wavelength concatenates the DNA of life forms in water, such as germs, bacteria, and viruses, preventing them from reproducing and making you sick. Bacteria can embed and reproduce in your digestive tract if you drink bacteria-infested water. By destroying the nucleic acids of their DNA, ultraviolet light renders bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi unable to proliferate.

What is UV Purification? And What Is UV Water Purifier System?

The UV (Ultraviolet) rays (light) of a UV water purifier eliminate the hazardous germs in the water. As a result, the water is entirely pathogen-free. More saliently, the UV filtration mechanism employs a UV lamp (a bulb that emits UV light/radiation or rays) capable of disinfecting the water from all types of harmful micro-organic impurities such as bacteria, viruses, cysts, and so on. As a result, the UV water purifier benefits health by killing all harmful microbes without affecting the taste.

When Should You Choose a UV Water Purifier?

If you are concerned about microbiological contamination, you should consider purchasing a UV water purifier for your home. UV radiation is capable of killing up to 99.9999% of aquatic germs. If your water is not complicated or contaminated, you should always choose a UV filter rather than a RO to destroy and affect bacteria. In several situations, water from private wells has been shown to contain bacteria and other microbes.

What are the pros and cons of a UV water purifier?

A UV water filter is best for home use, and if your water is not hard and has below 300 TDS levels, install it in your home, not an RO.
