usage for a UV light is to disinfect filtered water at a certain flow
rate. Bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms are destroyed by the
UV interfering with the DNA and RNA in the organisms' reproductive cycles.
In theory, the reverse osmosis membrane already removes bacteria and viruses
from the water, therefore, if you are on a municipal water system (tap
water) in the U.S., chances are that you should not need a UV light on
top of our ULTIMATE RO System. But, if your water source is known to be unsafe
with microorganisms and you want to have extra protection, then you can
add an UV as an additional stage to disinfect water.
UV light When is purchased together with an APEC RO system, it will come
already installed for you. Also this ultra violet light can be added on
to any existing RO system.
