Is UV Light Good for Drinking Water?

Treating water with Ultraviolet (UV) light is one of the MOST effective ways to address waterborne microorganisms. 99.99% of all bacteria and viruses in drinking water are destroyed by UV, without the need to add any harsh chemicals.

During the UV water disinfection process, water is exposed to UV light which disrupts the cell structure of the microbe and thus destroys harmful microorganisms, including Cryptosporidium and Giardia.viqua-vh200-f10-whole-house-uv-combo-system-9-gpm

UV water sterilizers are commonly used by households on well water because coliform and other bacteria are often an issue with well water.

A UV disinfection system can protect household water 24/7. This continual treatment of all water entering the home by UV light disinfection can give a homeowner peace of mind. It also saves the homeowner from repeatedly having to test their water and shock the well with chemicals.


What are the Disadvantages of UV Water Treatment?

There are challenges with UV light water treatment that you should be aware of before purchasing:

UV light cannot remove all contaminants: UV can only remove waterborne microorganisms and cannot remove sediment, chlorine, lead, etc.

UV systems needs electricity to operate: Because UV needs power, it's not ideal for emergency water treatment or in back-country settings where power loss is common.

UV sterilizers do not improve taste of water: If your water smells or tastes bad, we recommend an RO drinking water system.

Prefiltration may be needed with a UV system: UV disinfection can only work if water is not murky. The "floaties" or suspended solids in water can block the light rays from reaching microbes in the water.
