The overall system design employs a multi barrier approach to water quality. Due to the high water quality sourced from the tank, significantly less load is placed on the treatment system. In order to make the water safe for human contact there are four levels of water treatment based on use. UV disinfection does not actually kill the bacteria, it disrupts the DNA so that it can not reproduce. These irradiated bacteria pass harmlessly through the human body.
Rainwater used for irrigation or fire suppression does not need UV water treatment. A simple sediment filter is used to protect irrigation equipment from clogs.
Rainwater used for toilets, laundry, or outdoor chores with a high risk of human contact require a light UV system (i.e. Pressure washing, cleaning, etc.).
Rainwater used for potable drinking water requires UV treatment rated for the NSF 55 class “A” system. This is the international standard for a primary disinfection of a water source. These UV systems continuously monitor the water quality and will shut off the water distribution system in the event that the water is not potable and unsafe.
All the UV systems are mounted on a wall bracket for simple installation. The system requires pipe connections for the inlet and outlet, as well as a 120VAC power source. Cleanflo UV water treatment systems is essentially a plug-n-play UV water treatment system.
UV Water Treatment System
This system is a great non-chemical alternative to chlorination and imparts no residual chemicals in drinking water.
Bacterial contamination can be present in all water supplies – especially in areas without access to treated municipal water systems. Water from wells, rain, or ground sources should not be consumed without adequate microbiological treatment, regardless of how it is tested.
UV Disinfection Sterilizers protect your family by sterilizing water and neutralizing harmful bacteria and viruses so they can no longer reproduce.
Toilet, Laundry, and more
This system will provide your home with rainwater that is safe for use in anything that is non-potable. This system uses two pre-filters to clean the rainwater prior to the UV disinfection. Rated for 8 USGPM (higher flow rates available)
Drinking, Bathing, and more
This system will provide your home with rainwater that is safe all domestic uses, rated to produce potable drinking water. NSF 55 CLASS A Water Disinfection Unit. This system monitors water quality and will automatically shut off if water is NOT safe to drink. This system uses three pre-filters to clean the rainwater prior to the UV disinfection. Rated for 8 USGPM (higher flow rates available)
