Quick Tip: How Do You Tell If A Uv Filter Is Working?

Category: UV light sterilizers

We use a UV filter to eliminate all the bacteria and viruses present in the water to make it safe and clean for drinking. However, it’s very hard to know that your water is safe for drinking after filtration from just a look or an assumption.

Yes, contaminated water may appear cloudy, but that does not give 100% certainty that if the water is clear it is free from bacteria, protozoa, and viruses. Therefore we tend to ask this question to have that satisfaction that the product is working effectively and worth the value for our money.

For you to know if your UV filter is working can be done by checking the lamp if it’s glowing, and if it isn’t, there may be a problem with the lamp, ballast, or just electric problems that can be fixed.

You may also check the bulb if it’s functioning well to radiate the UV rays that destroy the bacteria. It can be done by using a white piece of cloth or paper where you hold it against the light, and if it turns a violet shade, that means its working, and if it remains white, that means that the filter is not working and the water is still contaminated.
