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.

UV Works when ordered correctlyApec offers many products. It is easy to order the wrong replacement bulb. I learned the hard way by ordering APEC replacement filter set Filter-Set-ESUV-SS but I should have ordered Filter-Set-ESUV-SS-V2. The replacement filter set arrived with the wrong bulb. I ordered the correct bulb and threw away the incorrect bulb because returns were not available.In addition, I made the mistake of removing the knurled collar on the UV light housing and damaged the glass tube inside. The replacement tube cost about $50. Breaking the tube was my fault and I subsequently changed the bulb by only removing the black plastic cover per the instructions.We are RO water zealots. The APEC system provides RO water equivalent to bottled water without the single use plastic waste. I encourage everyone to purchase an RO system. I hope this post helps APEC owners avoid my mistakes.
