Flow Right Filtration Using UV Water Purification
Do you want to start with the good news or the bad news?
The bad news is that your household may contain bacteria and viruses dangerous to the health of your family.
The good news? There is a reliable way to fix it, and our team at Flow Right is here to help.
By installing an ultraviolet (UV) water purification system you can make sure that the water in your home is free of any pathogens carrying waterborne illness.
Fact: UV water treatment is highly effective, eliminating up to 99.99% of bacteria and viruses in your water supply. Hepatitis, cryptosporidium, and mold are a few contaminants that this filtration system targets.
Fact: UV rays kill contaminants by breaking down their DNA. By destroying their molecular bonds, the microorganisms are unable to grow or function. Flow Right services are expanding to offer customers in the Colorado Springs-Pueblo region the best water filtration products in the industry today. Our collected focus on customer service is award-winning– the Flow Right water purification system will be too!
How does the Flow Right UV water purification system work?
There are four basic components that make up the UV filtration system: a UV reactor chamber, UV lamp (or bulb), the UV quartz sleeve, and UV controller unit.
UV Reactor Chamber
The reactor chamber is responsible for controlling the flow of water through the purification system. The cylindrical chamber contains two other pieces of the system: the quartz sleeve and lamp. Flow Right reactor chambers are made of stainless steel so that you get a product that works and looks great!
UVC is an FDA approved disinfectant used to clean air, water, and nonporous surfaces. The UV lamp creates electrical currents that produce UVC, which is how the system purifies your household water and makes it safe to drink.
UV Quartz Sleeve
The function of the quartz sleeve is to protect the UV lamp. Since the UV lamp is powered by electricity, the sleeve acts as a protective barrier from potential temperature fluctuations and breakage. The sleeve is made of quartz glass and must be cleaned when the lamp is changed.
UV Controller Unit
The controller unit is responsible for monitoring the electrical output of the UV lamp. Without the controller unit, the UV system could not power the UV light necessary to produce fresh water. The complexity of your controller unit will depend on the manufacturer you choose.
Flow Right: Making the Right Choice for Your UV Water Purifier
Ultraviolet water purification technology is an innovative form of water filtration that is slowly taking over the industry.
Our UV Water Purifier eliminates the bacteria, viruses, mold, algae, and more from your water supply so it can be chemical-free. Unlike chlorination, this disinfection process does not add bad tastes or odors to your water.
The UV purification system is commonly paired with a Reverse Osmosis filtration system. To learn more about why RO water is so great, check out the efficiency of reverse osmosis membranes. Together, they make a great team!
The UV system eliminates dangerous pathogens using ultraviolet light to disinfect your water supply. The RO system eliminates contaminants like chlorine and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) using a pressure-driven membrane filter.
These two water filters work together to produce fresh and safe water for consumption.
This filtration system is a great addition for households that get their water supply from a well. It’s also a great choice for those with city water. In order to determine if your water supply contains dangerous pathogens, we suggest conducting a water quality test.
Here at Flow Right, our goal is to help the water in your house Flow Right.
Our experienced team of plumbers strives to provide both commercial and residential customers with the best possible service. That is why we offer this cutting edge filtration system at family-friendly rates.
What is the difference between UV Purification and Chlorination?
We’ve been hearing some talk that favors chlorination over UV water purification as the best method for whole house water filtration. As an authority on the subject, we want to clear this up. (The same way a UV purifier will clear up your water!)
Chlorination is a process that disinfects water by simply adding chlorine to it. There are a few problems that you may encounter by choosing this form of water filtration.
- Chlorine adds a bad taste and smell to your water. The UV purification process keeps your water tasting and smelling great!
- A byproduct of chlorination is Trihalomethanes (THMs). There are many health risks associated with the consumption of THMs, including skin cancers and miscarriage. By contrast, UV water purification produces no harmful byproducts.
- The maintenance of a chlorination water treatment system is far more intensive than the upkeep of a UV water purifier. UV disinfection is low maintenance. All we ask is that you change the system light bulb once a year!
- Some people have sensitivities to chlorine, making its use less common.
Well, we think that the answer is clear. When it comes to producing high-quality drinking water, UV disinfection is the best choice consumers today are making.
UV Water Purification Does Not Eliminate Perfluorinated Substances (PFAs)
Water with high levels of PFAs can cause a range of health problems, from thyroid disease to decreased fertility in women. If you are a resident of Security, Widefield, or Fountain, these human-made chemicals have been found in levels 20 times higher than recommended by the EPA in your water supply.
UV purification is not effective in reducing PFOAs from water. IF you are a resident who needs PFCs removed from your water supply, check out our RO systems available for installation. These systems are 90% effective in removing a wide range of PFAs.
