Pentek UV-120-2 Ultraviolet Water Filter System
Note: The Pentek UV-120-2 Ultraviolet Water Filter System is the international version of the Pentek UV-120-1 Ultraviolet System. The UV-120-2 features a higher voltage of 220 to accomodate non-American electric systems.
The Pentek UV-120-2 effectively controls bacterial and microbiological intrusions in potable drinking water without the use of environmentally harmful chemicals. A germicidal ultraviolet light operates at a 254 nanometers wavelength to disrupt the reproductive process of harmful microbes and bacteria. Thie system is constructed from a durable polypropylene housing and cap to ensure a long life and worry free operation. In addition to the housing, the system includes a stainless steel reaction chamber insert sleeve, quartz sleeve to protect the lamp, voltage regulated control module, 6 foot long power cord, built in steel mounting bracket, and installation hardware and housing wrench.
The system does not filter out sediment, particulates, chemicals, or other contaminants, it is used solely for reducing and removing harmful microbes and bacteria. For best results a Pentek whole house filter is recommend in conjunction with the Pentek UV-120-2 Ultraviolet Water Filter System as a prefilter to prevent larger debris from blocking the UV lamp and potentially reducing its effectiveness.
