UV (Ultra Violet) Water Systems

Our UV or ultraviolet water systems are ideal for treating private water supplies. Ultraviolet water filters are highly
efficient at killing bacteria, viruses and other micro-organisms that can be found in un-treated water.

What Does a UV Filter Do?

A UV water system is a form of treatment that helps to purify a water supply through the removal of bacteria. They are most commonly used to neutralise water for residential properties, as their efficiency makes UV water filters a very cost-effective choice for homeowners.

As water passes through the chamber of the filter, it is flooded with ultraviolet light from a UV lamp. The filters use this type of light as it has the perfect wavelength to breakdown the DNA of any bacteria or viruses present, ensuring that the cells are not able to multiply.

There are no chemicals involved in this water treatment solution, making it safe for both consumers and the environment nor does the process alter the water in any way, shape or form.

Benefits of UV Filters


How Much Does a UV Water Filter Cost?

The cost of a UV water filter varies depending on the requirements of your property and the type of UV filter you choose. To find the right UV water system for your house, you will need to select a size that matches your household’s peak demand rate. This is how much supply would be required if all water sources were used at once.

While set up costs may be similar, thanks to their low level of maintenance and the absence of chemicals like chlorine, UV water systems are considered very cost efficient when compared to other types of water treatment.

How Effective Are UV Water Filters?

It is scientifically proven that UV water systems are capable of deactivating 99.99% of micro-organisms found in common water supplies. Due to this, UV water filters are now approved by many international health organisations thanks to their efficacy.

UV systems are able to purify water quickly and effectively, and as they run constantly it is guaranteed that the water running through your house is always safe and free from bacteria and viruses. Despite this, the UV systems waste no water and produce zero by-products, making them a very efficient and low maintenance choice for residential water treatment.

Types of UV Filters


The first type is a hydraulically powered wiper system. The flow of water passes through the reaction chamber which is reversed using a four flow valve system, this in turn pushes a wiper assembly that cleans the quartz tube with the UV lamp inside. The valves are switched at a pre-determined interval (based on quality of water and contamination) to action the cleaning cycle. The correct cleaning cycle will ensure that the radiation from the UV lamp will be maximised and not reduced by contamination of the quartz tube.


The second type is a motor driven system. Inside the reaction chamber is a mechanical wiper assembly that when activated traverses the length of the chamber, the cleaning is performed by the use of a lead screw and planitary gear system that drives a cleaning head along the quartz tube and at the same time rotates to ensure complete cleaning. The correct cleaning cycle (based on quality of water and contamination) will ensure that the radiation from the UV lamp will be maximised and not reduced by contamination of the quartz tube.
