By installing a UV light, you are ensuring that 99.99% of the bacteria is removed. The system allows water to travel through its tube exposing the bacteria to an ultraviolet light which eliminates it without the use of chemicals.
You cannot see, smell or taste bacteria, but the UV light has an alarm that will activate if the unit is not functioning properly. This will alert members of your household that the water may not be safe to drink. The ultraviolet bulb on the light will need to be changed once every 12 months (or 365 days); a green light indicates the system is counting back from 365 days. When 30 days are remaining the light will be amber and turn red when 10 days are left. When the red light is on, an audible alarm will sound once every day until the bulb is changed.
Water that travels through the UV light does need to be of certain quality for the unit to function properly, therefore, it may be recommended to pre-treat your water to remove such issues as turbidity, iron or manganese.
