Domestic UV Water Filters

  • Ultraviolet systems guarantee water that is free from bacteriological contaminants that could have a significant health impact.
  • UV systems are an extremely efficient, cost effective and reliable means of providing safe drinking water.
  • Suitable for both private water supplies such as a borehole, well water or streams, as well as suitable for those that wish to protect their incoming mains water supply.
  • Commonly installed in flats, cottages, small to large dwellings and in many agricultural farm environments.
  • Sizes from as little as 1.8l/min up to 160l/min

What is a domestic ultraviolet (UV) disinfection system? And why do I need one?

A domestic UV system will sterilise your water making it safe for consumption. This protects you from your potentially dangerous water supply by emitting a UV light at a specific dose. This light targets the DNA of any pathogens that passes through the system including viruses and bacteria. The UV light provides a safe, cost-effective, efficient way of disinfecting your water supply without requiring chemicals.

All mains water that is supplied to our properties is treated prior to reaching our homes. Your local water supply board will treat the water prior to it leaving their site, however there have been numerous cases across the UK where waterborne cysts and viruses have been able to enter our supply. A new trend is starting to emerge where people wish to protect their supply with a UV water system in case this happens again.

I have a private water supply and have been told I need ultraviolet light protection, is this right?

At IWE we believe that all private water supplies, whether this be a borehole, spring or well  should be protected from bacteriological contaminants and waterborne cysts. All private water supplies are sources that are not chemically treated and are open to the elements which can allow for bacteria and viruses to spread. Placing a simple UV treatment system and pre-filter will guarantee that you are protected against these harmful contaminants.

What size UV steriliser do I require?

UV systems are sized upon how much water you wish to process through them. This is not always known but information such as the size of property, how many bathrooms, how many occupants will allow our engineers to advise the correct sized unit. At IWE we supply units from as little as 1.8l/min through to 160l/min.

Where do I install the UV filter system?

In domestic and residential properties, ultraviolet systems can be installed on a single tap at the point of use or at the entry point for the entire supply for a property.

What maintenance do the units require?

At the very minimum an annual lamp replacement and filter change is required. The filter change may require replacing as frequently as every three months depending on your incoming water quality.

Do IWE stock replacement parts?

IWE stock replacement UV parts for all of their systems including replacement UV pre-filters, quartz sleeves, lamps and ballasts.

UV Water Filters

Ultra Violet water treatment systems or UV sterilisation is unlike other conventional water treatment solutions. It is not a filter, as it doesn’t actually remove anything from water. Instead, a UV light is emitted, destroying the DNA of any pathogens that cross its path such as viruses and bacteria. UV is a clean, safe, easy and cost effective way of treating your water. If used correctly it can destroy 99.99% of all pathogens it comes into contact with. 

Industrial Water Equipment offer a comprehensive range of UV Water Filters ranging from small single use 1.8lpm UV filter units, right through to large UV Filters for commercial applications.

We are also able to offer a complete range of UV spares and parts including replacement lamps, quartz sleeves and power supplies for all our UV range.
