4 Benefits of Installing a UV Water Purification System, Wappinger, New York

Imagine drinking a delicious and refreshing glass of water that’s free of impurities and safely filtered via a light-powered system. That’s the basic premise behind a UV water purification system. By installing one, your home will have convenient access to bacteria- and chemical-free water. If you need a water filtration system, here’s why you should install a UV-powered option.

Why You Should Install a UV Water Purification System

1. Removes Contaminants

A UV-lamp contains a special component that allows rays to pass through to destroy contaminants in the water, including bacteria that can cause salmonella, E. coli, and the flu virus. Unlike traditional purification systems, these don’t use chemicals, such as chlorine, to clean the water. 

2. Protects the Environment

Also, water is conserved as it goes through the purification process. Some systems may end up wasting chlorine-tainted water, letting it seep into the ground and waterways. 

3. Requires Little Maintenance

After the installation, there will be little upkeep. You’ll need an annual service visit to ensure the components are working properly. During this inspection, the technician will check to see if the UV lamp and its sleeve needs replacing. 

4. Provides Cost Benefits

With little to no maintenance required, you won’t need to buy expensive products and parts to keep your system running. The system is efficient, so it won’t increase your monthly water bills. Plus, it doesn’t require much energy (about as much as a traditional light bulb), keeping money in your wallet.
