Protection From Waterborne Cysts, Bacteria & Viruses
The RainSoft RCUV Series system reduces some of the most common microorganisms found in water without the use of chemicals.
In RainSoft RCUV Series water disinfection systems, an ultraviolet lamp is centered within a protective quartz sleeve in the unit’s precisely engineered and polished stainless steel disinfection chamber. This ensures the even distribution of UV energy to all water passing through the unit. Microorganisms are bombarded with a lethal dose of UV light, destroying bacteria and inactivating many viruses. Ultraviolet disinfection provides many of the same benefits as distillation without removing beneficial minerals from the water. UV disinfects water using high-intensity light energy. Unlike chemicals, it does not leave unwanted residuals or by-products in the water. Since there are no chemicals, UV does not affect the taste, odor, or clarity of the water. For this reason, UV is often combined with other water treatment devices such as carbon filters, water conditioners, and reverse osmosis to provide complete water quality solutions. Incoming water to the ultraviolet disinfection system should be filtered to a minimum of 5 microns.
Step-By-Step: How Does It Work
Installation & Water Entry
The RCUV water disinfection unit is installed in your home’s main water line. Water enters the unit and passes into the stainless steel UV light chamber.
UV Light Exposure
The water passes under an ultraviolet lamp that’s centered within a protective quartz sleeve inside the chamber, which is precisely engineered to evenly distribute the UV energy.
