How UV Sterilizers Work

Home Water Solutions UV sterilizer works by targeting water passing through your mains system. Organisms are prevented from reproducing by targeting them at a cellular level. For the UV light to work fully it must not be obstructed. This is managed by passing water directly through the UV sterilizer on a joint within your water supply system.

The UV sterilizer must be continually powered to work, but the cost of operating such a device is minimal. The Home water solutions UV sterilizer operates at a flow rate of 22lpm which is more than enough for the average Irish household. This ensures that the UV light penetrates and targets all the water which flows through the system.

All our equipment is WRAS (Water regulatory advisory scheme) approved. This is a scheme designed to ensure water treatment devices and services meet the regulatory standards within the water treatment industry.
