How Does UV Water Purification Work?
Have you ever wondered how modern water purifiers completely purify water and make it safe to drink? Well, it’s the water purification technology used that’s doing all the work. UV (ultraviolet) purification is one of the leading water purification technologies modern water purifiers use.
Best water purifiers for home from Kutchina use UV purification to provide pure and safe drinking water. Here are a few of the things worth knowing about UV water purification
How does UV water purification work?
UV water purification systems purify water by using ultraviolet rays to kill microorganisms present in the water. UV rays completely kill water-borne microorganisms and prevent their reproduction by disrupting their DNA. Also, UV rays do not lead to chemical changes in the water. As such, water purified from UV rays doesn’t contain any harmful microorganisms and retain their original taste.
Modern water purifiers use low-pressure mercury vapour lamps which produce ultraviolet radiation at a specific level. The mercury vapour lamps are installed in such a way that they do not contact water.
Benefits of UV water purification
There are many benefits of choosing a water purifier with UV purification. These include:
● Water purification in a jiffy
One of the biggest advantages of using a UV water purifier is instant purification of water. UV water purifiers can purify water as soon as you switch on the electric supply.
● No purification chemicals used
UV water purification systems do not any chemicals. As such, the colour, odour, and taste of the water are unadulterated.
● Cost-effective method
UV water purifiers are cost-effective; the mercury vapour lamp of the appliance is similar to a standard light bulb in terms of power consumption and price.
● Removes a number of germs and bacteria
UV rays of UV water purifiers can kill a number of disease-causing germs and bacteria present in the water, including Cryptosporidium, Giardia, and E. Coli.
Maintenance tips for UV water purifiers
UV water purifiers can last long, especially if you regularly maintain the appliance. Here are a few maintenance tips to help you keep your UV water purifier functioning smoothly:
● Clean the internal parts regularly
The internal parts of UV water purifiers get dirty over time as minerals and tiny debris present in the water accumulate and build-up. This can, in turn, lower the appliance’s performance as the deposit build-up in the glass housing of the mercury vapour lamp can interfere with the penetration of the UV rays. Depending on the quality of water that’s supplied to your home, clean the internal parts of the appliance every 1 or 2 months.
● Changing the UV lamp
UV lamps tend to solarise and their intensity can decrease over time. This is true if the UV lamp of a water purifier is turned on and off frequently. Have a professional check your water purifier’s UV lamp checked every year, and replace if it has started to solarise.
