Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "How does this ultraviolet water filtration system work?"
A. First the system uses a 0.5 micron filter to improve taste, remove odor and reduce sediment. Then it uses high frequency light to irradiate water through a glass element. Water passing the element is exposed to the light, which kills bacteria and living organisms.
Q. "How long does the UV bulb itself last?"
A. The replacement lamp uses 10 watts and is estimated to last 9000 hours. The transformer has an indicator light which goes out when the lamp is burned out.
Q. "What is a micron rating?"
A. The average size of the openings between pieces of the filter media are represented in microns. For example, a 40-micron filter has larger openings than a 5-micron filter. Consequently, the 40-micron filter element will let larger particles pass through the filter than the 5-micron element.
As a general rule, the smaller micron rating for a filter is better, but as with most everything, there is a trade-off. Flow capability usually drops off as the micron rating gets smaller. To overcome this, low micron-rating filters must have larger elements to keep from sacrificing precious flow.
