A security system for your water, UV technology provides additional protection for your water supply. It is proven to control microbiological (bacteria & virus) issues in water including Coliform, e.coli, cryptosporidium, and giardia lamblia—without the use of chemicals.
Who needs a C&J UV Light?
Well Water Customers—Well water disinfection is your responsibility because EPA regulations protecting public drinking water sources do not apply to your private well. Well water contamination can affect even the best-maintained and newest wells. Regular testing, proper maintenance, and appropriate filtration and disinfection are necessary. Adding ultraviolet technology for disinfection can reduce health risks associated with well-water contamination and improve the quality of your water.
City Water Customers—You might think that you don’t need to worry about contaminants if you are on city water, but that isn’t always true. Thousands of chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, and pharmaceuticals are not monitored or treated by city water suppliers. Also, the aging water utility infrastructure in the U.S. is leaving some cities and towns vulnerable to contamination in their drinking water. With regular testing and a UV water filter system installed for your home, you would not be inconvenienced by a boil water advisory, but can continue to use your water, as normal.
What are the advantages of a C&J UV light?
UV systems are an effective means of water disinfection for residential point of entry used to help disinfect the entire home. UV systems are highly recommended to homeowners who may suspect any e.coli, cryptosporidium, giardia, or any other types of bacteria and viruses in the water. Other means to neutralize bacteria or viruses in water would be adding chemical disinfectants. It is important to avoid drinking any water that is potentially contaminated from bacteria to protect yourself from any water-borne bacterial diseases.
Chemical Free—UV purification does not use any chemicals like chlorine or leave any harmful by-products.
Taste & Odor Free—UV does not add any chemical taste or odor to the water.
Extremely Effective—One of the most effective ways to neutralize disease-causing microbes by destroying 99.99%.
Requires very little energy—Uses about the same energy as it would to run a 60 watt light bulb. Low Maintenance—Set and forget type of system, just change UV bulb annually.
How Does a C&J Ultraviolet Light Work?
As bacteria in the water passes through the UV treatment system, the ultraviolet light disrupts its DNA, eliminating the ability to reproduce. If it can’t reproduce, it can’t replicate, ensuring it can’t infect what it comes into contact with. UV light water puriﬁcation systems are simple but very effective. Ultraviolet light systems also have many beneﬁts that other puriﬁcation applications don’t. They are reliable, do not waste any water, and have relatively low maintenance. Also, UV light disinfection is approved by the EPA because it is chemical-free and doesn’t create any harmful byproducts. The C&J UV Light system comes with a 10-year limited warranty on the controller and stainless steel vessel. The UV lamp (bulb) and sleeve come with a 1-year limited warranty.
What Are the Limitations to C&J UV Light
Ultraviolet purification itself is not enough to purify water down to drinking water purposes. This is because UV radiation is only effective for treating bacteria and viruses. UV light does not work to eliminate contaminants such as chlorine, heavy metals, and VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds). UV systems should also be combined with water softeners and reverse osmosis systems to provide a complete purification process for the safest drinking water. Any hardness or iron can foul up the sleeve and reduce, or eliminate the effectiveness of the UV bulb. C&J doesn’t warranty UV light systems that are not paired with properly functioning softeners.
