Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is GPM? A. GPM stands for Gallons Per Minute. This refers to the rate at which water is flowing through a pipe. UV sterilizers are rated for the maximum flow rate. They can safely process water and still kill bacteria. So, for example, 6 GPM means 6 gallons can flow through the UV in one minute.
Q. How can I know what size I need? A. For homes, select the 12 gallon-per-minute ("GPM") PC12, or the PC6 if a small home with one bathroom. For under the sink or point of use, select the PC2 2 GPM model.
Q. Are there any special requirements or conditions my water must have, before I can consider using Ultraviolet Sterilizer to disinfect my water? A. Water to be treated by UV light should be clear and low in hardness minerals, which is less than 7 grains per gallon (120 PPM). Water should be free of color. Iron should be less than 0.3 mg/L. Manganese should be less than 0.05 mg/L. The pH range should be 6.5 to 9.5.
Q. Where would I install a UV light sterilizer? A. Ultraviolet sterilizers are typically installed right before the water enters the home. If you have an existing water softener, it is installed after the softener. Often a 5-micron prefilter is used prior to the UV sterilizer. If iron or manganese is present, install an iron filter system. We often recommend a whole house filter using a dual grade 25 to 1-micron filter cartridge prior to UV sterilizers.
