Ultraviloet lamps used for water treatment  generate UVC light which has antibacterial effect with much greater intensity than sun light. Almost all UV lamps produce light with the wavelength of around 254 nanometers using this band’s effectiveness as far as bacteria killing is concerned.


Most water treatment systems using UV lamps are only a part of the aplliance in which other filtration rmethods are also used because UV light kills bacteria, viruses, mould, algea, fungi and cysts only whereas it does not affect chlorine, heavy metals, volatile organic compounds and other chemical contamination. UV lamps are widely used in bodies of water (water in parks, waterholes, fountains or swimming pools) where algae develop.

This is the most effective financially solution for people who want to eliminate a lot of contamination of biological origin from their water source.

The greatest merit of UV lamps is the fact that they do not introduce new chemical substances into water, do not leave half-products and do not affect the taste, acidity (pH) and other water properties. Additionally, except for harmless drinking water production, they do not affect negatively hydraulics or sewage system. UV filter is relatively cheap to install and its maintenance does not require much expenditure.
