There are many important factors to consider when installing a UV light system. Chief among these are the location of the unit and clarity of the water flowing into it.
- Location is critical because the disinfection process will only treat microorganisms upstream of the UV light system. Organisms thriving downstream of the unit will not be subject to germicidal irradiation.
- Water clarity is also important because the ability for ultra violet radiation to reach microorganisms may be obstructed by the presence of particulates in your water. For this reason you may need a pre-filter to remove particulates and enhance light transmittance.
