More sizes available. For UV systems on whole house filtration it is best to talk with us so we can support you on buying the correct sized lamp.
The KingLight UV systems are affordable yet high-performance sterilisers for the removal of bacteria, viruses, pathogens and other micro-organisms in water supplies.
The system has a handy lamp failure indicator which is audible and visual (LED and Alarm) so you know exactly when the UV Lamp requires changing. The lamp life is 9000 hours which is approximately one year.
We would install this system after the water purifier to treat drinking water or after the whole house filtration system for full protection.
UV Frequently Asked Questions
What is a UV Water Treatment System?
A UV Water Treatment systems uses a method known as ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI). This method uses ultraviolet (UV) light at sufficiently short wavelength to kill microorganisms.
Is UV effective against protozoa such as Cryptosporidium & Giardia lamblia?
Yes, it is proven that UV is the best available technology to treat these protozoan cysts. In addition,the dose levels required to inactivate these cysts are actually quite low: less than 10mJ/cm² for 99.9% reduction of Cryptosporidium parvum and Giardia lamblia.
Why disinfect a water supply?
Disinfection is recommended for all water supplies that are not protected by a municipal water source. Unfortunately, due to the uncertainties that exist with some current water supplies, it is not necessarily safe to rely on the fact that water supplies “may be safe”.
Does UV remove E. Coli?
Yes, E. Coli requires a dose of up to 10mJ/cm² to achieve a 4 log reduction.
Is UV 100% effective?
UV disinfection typically offers 4 log reduction (99.99%) for both bacteria & most viruses. UV is more effective than chemical disinfection processes at destroying a wide range of viruses. See also pre-filtration.
How do I know the system is working?
KINGLIGHT UVs are equipped with ballasts that emit an audible and visual alarm indicating lamp failure.
Is it necessary to disinfect a municipal water supply?
Municipal water suppliers work hard to provide safe disinfected water – however, even in the most advanced & best “policed” areas of Europe and the USA there have been outbreaks of Cryptosporidium – it is worthwhile noting : only one cyst may cause vomiting & illness.
Will a UV change the taste of water?
No, UV is a physical process.
The UV lamp should be changed every 9,000 hours – so approximately once per year.
What size UV?
Average households range from 15 lpm to 46 lpm – all covered by our UV range.
