Maintaining And Installing Ultraviolet Disinfection Systems In Sydney

Wherever there is water that is used for drinking, cleaning or other purposes, there is a risk of bacteria. Water can develop or have harmful microorganisms that can pose a risk to health. This includes water from rainwater tanks, bore water, and dams.

There are several methods of disinfection available, but one of the most popular and most effective remains an ultraviolet light filter system. As you may recognise from the fact the weather has a ‘UV rating’, ultraviolet light is actually a component of natural sunlight.

Ultraviolet light can be utilised in water purification systems supplied and maintained by our Sydney-based pump service and pump maintenance company, Enviro Pump Services.

How does ultraviolet light work?

Ultraviolet light is able to stop naturally occurring microorganisms from growing. It’s a complicated scientific process, but it has been proven again and again to be able to combat certain common and rare bacteria and protozoa that can occur in Australia.

These microorganisms often thrive in dark settings, such as within a pipe system, underground or in murky water. Ultraviolet light works best when water is clear and there is no obstruction, so it is often used in conjunction with a filter within a UV filter system. If there is too much dirt or debris in the water, the effectiveness of UV light may be reduced.

Why is my ultraviolet filter system not working?

You may wish to talk with a pump service near me about the ways an ultraviolet system can be set up to reduce the risks posed if it ceases to work.

For example, an ultraviolet pump may be able to be linked with water supply, so that water that has not been treated with UV light will not be provided. If a back-up generator is installed, the system may also be able to be kept running even when the power is out.

However, the safest bet is to regularly contact a Sydney-based pump repairs, pump service, and pump maintenance company to establish a regular schedule of pump maintenance. This will ensure that the water source remains as safe as possible and free from bacteria.

The job may include tasks such as glass tube cleaning, light and tube replacement, functionality checks, and more. It may also include testing your water to determine if the ultraviolet system is disinfecting the water as it should be.

Your afterhours pumps servicer in Sydney will be able to provide guidance on how regular this schedule ought to be. They may also be able to undertake regular cleaning to ensure that other risks aren’t present, beyond the point of disinfection within the pump system, for example. Backflow and biofilm are just two risks that can also affect the end result. It’s important to not let a UV system lull you into a false sense of security.
