Affordable UV Protection for Safe Natural Drinking Water
The VIQUA VP950 UltraViolet Water Disinfection System uses the most advanced UV(ultraviolet) light technology on the market to effectively destroy 99.99% of bacteria, viruses & cysts to provide users with an unlimited supply of safe microbial-free drinking water. This single station, POU (point-of-use) unit can be used to support an existing water filter system or used by itself as a stand-alone UV sanitizer. The unit's reactor chambers are constructed of high quality 304 stainless steel to reduce UV light degradation and ensure even UV light coverage. It features a visual "Power-ON" light, remaining lamp life display, and audible lamp failure indicator to warn when system servicing is needed. The design of the unit allows for easy access to provide quick and easy system servicing.
Water quality studies have found that up to 20-40% of wells are contaminated with some levels of chlorine-resistant parasites such as cryptosporidium, giardia & E.coli. These microorganisms can cause widespread gastrointestinal complications and severe illness if ingested through drinking water. The VIQUA VP950 UltraViolet Water Disinfection System is equipped to inactivate these and other coliform-bacteria strains without the need for chemical additives such as chlorine and chloramines which can negatively affect the taste and odor of the water. Chlorine can also interact with organic matter to create dangerous chemical by-products known as trihalomethanes (THMs) which can increase the risk of cancer, miscarriage or damage the liver, kidneys and nervous system. The VIQUA VP950 UltraViolet Water Disinfection System offers the most nature, cost-effective and reliable method for producing microbiologically safe drinking water without chemical additives.
UV Treatment – The Proven Way to Safeguard Your Water
UV disinfection is an all-natural process that does not change the composition of your water in any way. The germicidal energy of ultraviolet light destroys illness-causing microorganisms by attacking their genetic core (DNA). This powerful dose of UV light (wavelength of 253.7 nanometers) eliminates their ability to reproduce, and the organisms simply die. Water is purified by running it through a watertight chamber that contains an ultraviolet lamp. As water flows past, microorganisms are exposed to a lethal dose of germicidal UV energy. Disinfecting your water with ultraviolet light is exceptionally effective and environmentally safe. The UV does not change the taste, color, or odor of water. It is well proven, and it is the way of the future for water disinfection.
Most Durable & Maintenance-Free UV Light
This leading edge UV technology will eliminate 99.99% of bacteria and viruses quickly and efficiently. Highly effective against chlorine resistant cysts such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia that are not tested for in routine water tests.
friendly & Chemical free
A natural process that adds no harmful chemicals disinfectant such as chlorine to your water, and does not affect the taste or odor of water.
Maintenance is simple and can be completed in minutes without tools. Just periodically clean the lamp sleeve and replace the UV lamp once a year.
A UV system consumes about the same amount of energy as a 110-watt light bulb.
Compact space saving design, 1.5" MNPT connections makes installation a snap. Plug-and-play connection, no time-consuming programmable controls to set and understand.
Comes with a 1 year limited warranty. Receive high quality products, expert support, lowest price and warranty directly from a first-rate manufacturer.
NOTE: A 5 micron (nominal) sediment filter can be installed before the UV system and after any water softening equipment. If the UV transmittance (UVT) is less than 75% after the pre-treatment, activated carbon filtration may be desirable to improve UV transmittance. In addition, we suggest installing the unit indoors or at room temperature only.
High Performance System Components
High Output UV Lamp
Sterilume –EX coated low pressure germicidal UV lamp destroys 99.99% of bacteria, viruses & protozoan cysts. Proprietary coating provides more consistent & reliable UV output over the entire life of the lamp to ensure continuous disinfection coverage.
Durable Stainless Steel Chamber
Stainless steel reactor provides long life and eliminates the possibility of degradation from exposure to high intensity UV light.
Easy UV Lamp Replacement
The ultraviolet lamp can be quickly and easily changed without interrupting the water flow.
Silver ICE controller provides constant output current & an universal power input. Displays remaining lamp life, total days of operation & sounds warning alarm if the lamp fails to keep your family safe. Sealed case on controller helps prevent damage from accidental water intrusion.
