Does My UV System Water Need Pre-treatment?


Yes. You should have your water tested prior to installing a UV disinfection system. Water flowing through a UV system needs to be free from hardness, iron, turbidity, manganese, and color (which is referred to as tannins). The following is what many UV system manufacturers recommend for their UV systems:
  • Hardness < 7 gpg (grains per gallon)
  • Iron < 0.3 ppm (parts per million)
  • Manganese < 0.05 ppm
  • Turbidity < 1 NTU (nephelometric turbidity units)
  • UVT < 75%
  • Tannins < 0.1 ppm
If these levels are exceeded, scaling can occur, causing a decrease in the UV systems efficiency, as well as an alarm condition if the system is monitored. This is the reason why a UV sediment prefilter system with a 5 micron filter is necessary prior to the UV system in order to decrease the amount of turbidity that may be present in the water.

A sediment pre filter in conjunction with a water pre filter system will remove any sediment coming into your home though the main source and create a cleaner flow of water for the water pre filter system to clean. These pre filter systems will reduce dirt, sediment, bad odors, bad taste, chlorine and more.

We also recommend that if you are drawing from a lake or from some other "surface" water supply (lakes, rivers, well, etc.) that a water analysis is always done prior to installation of a UV system.
