Ultraviolet (UV) Water Purification System

Take Back Your Tap
The Chemical-Free Way!

The quality of your drinking water can change from day-to-day and season-to-season. This is why you need an ultraviolet water purification system!

Even if it is safe today, illness-causing contaminants such as E. coli and Crypto (cryptosporidium) can infiltrate wells, aquifers, aging pipes, or water supply infrastructure at any time – resulting in contaminated water and preventable sickness. The SVSQ-PA Ultraviolet Water Disinfection System by VIQUA will purify the water coming in to your home so that every tap gives safe, treated water.

VIQUA SVSQ-PA Ultraviolet Water Disinfection System

Minimal Maintenance

A yearly UV bulb change and occasional cleaning of the quartz sleeve that surrounds the lamp (to remove any residue left from the minerals in your water) is required. If you are a customer on our UV-Maintenance Program, we will automatically schedule and take care of it for you!

Don’t take the chance on water that may be harmful to you and your loved ones. Contact us today for more information about our ultraviolet water purifier and/or schedule your installation!
