All About UV Sterilization

UV Sterilization

UV sterilization is a technology that utilizes ultraviolet light to kill microorganisms. The most common way to do this is to use UV light sterilization, which is 99% effective at killing airborne and waterborne pathogens. 

Different types of pathogens require different wavelengths and intensities of UV light for the complete elimination of microorganisms, so Viqua Ultraviolet Water Sterilizers are customized for the needs of your home. 

Lone Star Water Services provides UV light installation services to ensure you have the best possible UV lighting system for your home or business at an affordable price! 

How Does UV Sterilization Work?

When UV light interacts with water, it effectively destroys the cell’s genetic material & prevents reproduction. This process is rapid & only takes about 8 minutes for complete sterilization. 

This method is often used in food preparation, pharmaceuticals, medical instruments, cosmetics, electronics & other products that require sterilization at low temperatures or where steam cannot be utilized. In water, it is installed at individual pipes or most commonly at the home’s water supply entry point as whole-house sterilization.
