Is UV necessary for a water filter?

UV purification is not necessary for a water filter, but a water filter is necessary prior to a UV system. UV systems are most effective when water is clear, so they must have at least a five-micron pre-filter to prevent living organisms from hiding behind loose particles. You could use a sediment filter to remove dirt and debris from a well water supply or a water softener to reduce iron as prefiltration. A UV purifier is the last thing water passes through on the way to the house.

Test your water quality before you use a UV system to make sure the water does not exceed these levels:

  • Hardness < 7 gpg (grains per gallon)
  • Iron < 0.3 ppm (parts per million)
  • Manganese < 0.05 ppm
  • Turbidity < 1 NTU (nephelometric turbidity units)
  • UVT < 75%
  • Tannins < 0.1 ppm

Description

How a UV water purifier works

A UV water purifier exposes living organisms, such as bacteria, viruses, or cysts (like Cryptosporidium and Giardia) to a germicidal ultraviolet wavelength. With enough energy, UV radiation at the 254-nm wavelength disrupts the DNA in pathogenic microorganisms so they cannot reproduce. The ultraviolet light prevents bacteria from spreading disease through drinking water.

UV dosage is the measurement of energy (in mJ/cm²) delivered by a UV water purifier. The more dosage provided, the more energy delivered to treat contaminated water. At a certain threshold, this energy becomes sufficient enough to inactivate most of the microorganisms present in water.

What does a UV disinfection remove?

UV disinfection deactivates living organisms, but it does not remove particles from water, add chemicals, or remove bad tastes and odors.

UV disinfection treats water for: 

  • Cryptosporidium
  • Giardia
  • Dysentery bacilli
  • Salmonella
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis
  • Streptococcus
  • E. coli
  • Hepatitis B
  • Cholera
  • Algae
  • Fungi
  • Some viruses
