ALKA UV - Alkaline Filter system
How does UV filtration affect water quality?
UV (Ultraviolet) filtration is a water treatment method that uses ultraviolet light to disinfect and purify water. When water passes through a UV filter, it is exposed to UV-C light, which is germicidal and capable of inactivating or destroying various microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, and protozoa.
The UV light disrupts the DNA and RNA of microorganisms, preventing them from reproducing and rendering them unable to cause infections or illnesses. UV filtration is particularly effective in eliminating waterborne pathogens that are resistant to other forms of water treatment, such as chlorine.
UV filtration does not remove other contaminants like chemicals, heavy metals, or sediment from water. Its primary purpose is to target and deactivate harmful microorganisms. Therefore, UV filtration is often used in conjunction with other water treatment methods, such as carbon filters or sediment filters, to ensure comprehensive water purification.
It is important to note that UV filtration requires a power source to operate and regular maintenance to ensure the UV lamp is functioning correctly. Monitoring and periodic replacement of the UV lamp are necessary to maintain its effectiveness in disinfecting the water.
Do I need to install the flow restricter ?
According to our supplier The flow-restricter is a part that must be included in the package due to qualification reasons. However, it is not necessary to install the flow restricer. The flow restricter bring the flow down to 40l/min. Our reccomendation for the flow rate is 58l/min and peak flow 11l/min.
