UV Disinfection

UV light water treatment

Ultra violet disinfection (sometimes called UV purification) is the method of choice for protecting the majority of private water supplies from microbiological contamination in the United Kingdom. UV Disinfection kills bacteria (E.coli, Coliforms etc.) mould, algae and virus contamination without adding chemicals – preserving the water’s natural taste and healthy minerals.

UV Disinfection is the approved method for getting rid of harmful bacteria from borehole, stream or spring water. UV will not alter the taste of your water or remove any of its healthy minerals - call 01422 833121

UV Disinfection pre-filtration

It is recommended that all UV disinfectiors are installed with a pre-filter. This pre filter removes the larger particulate from the water, preventing the effect called “shadowing” whereby bacteria can pass through the water in the “shadow” of small debris. The size of filter is dependent on the water flow and quality of the water. We recommend that a 5 micron filter is used. Where cryptosporidium or giardia are present, a 1 micron filter can be used.

The UV bulb needs changing every year and the pre filter every 3 to 6 months dependent on water quality and the amount of water used. To change the filter you need a Spare Filter and a Wrench.

“I found Springhill Water Services to be very efficient, helpful and friendly. After one phone call in the morning, someone came to the house that evening to explain how a UV filter would work. The system was installed and up and running within a couple of days.”
