Ultraviolet Water Filter System from American Plumber (U.S. Filter)

quality U.V. filter
This UV system is designed to protect potable drinking water sources from occasional intrusion of microbiological contamination. High doses of ultra violet light energy at a wavelength of 254 nanometers controls microbes by disabling their reproductive process. This is a positive alternative to using environmentally harmful chemicals. Certain states require system registration of certification for health-related contaminant reduction claims, therefore, this UV system is not for residential sale in CA.

The inlet and outlet are standard 3/4" female threads with plastic bushing reducing to standard 3/8" female threads both inlet and outlet. The manufacturer recommends a .5 micron carbon block filter pre-filter for this unit (one is included with this unit).

We recommend a max of 2 gpm flow regulator in front of this unit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "Does a UV system require any chemicals or anything else that I have to add?"
A. Most manufacturers recommend that you use a 5 micron (or smaller) sediment filter before a UV unit. This is required because large particles provide a haven for microorganisms that you are trying to destroy. Depending on the turbidity of the water, multiple sediment filters may also be required before the UV system. If color or suspended particles are present, the transmission quality of any UV light is diminished. Where this is a problem, a quality carbon filter may be needed after the sediment filter and before the UV unit.

Q. "Is there anything I should do before installing an ultraviolet filter system?"
A. Before installing any UV (brand) unit, it's a good idea to start with a clean system (water lines, water heater, etc.). Disinfect the entire downstream system with chlorine or other disinfectant that is safe for piping and humans.

Q. "How long does the UV bulb itself last?"
A. American Plumber recommends replacing the bulb once every 10 to 12 months. The bulb will last a lot longer than that, however its capacity for neutralizing microbes diminishes after that length of time.

Q. "I just installed a new filter cartridge and my water is cloudy/white?"
A. After you install a new filter (this is the case with any/all brands of filter cartridges) you should run it for a few minutes. Generally cloudy or white water indicates air in the line and this is natural and normal with a replacement of a cartridge. Air will enter in the housing, lines and cartridge. Just run the water for a few minutes and the cloudy conditions will go away (unless you have VERY cold water in which case it is the oxygen in the water that could be making the water look cloudy). It is always a good idea to run the water free flowing for a few minutes after installing any brand or type of new filter cartridge.
