Installation Tips : 101

One may purchase the best UV system available on the market today, however if it is not installed correctly, or misapplied, then all is for nothing! Modern UV systems are designed for years of trouble free operation; however one must remember that the system is treating your water in your specific application. If you do not follow the Manufacturer's Installation & Maintenance Instructions exactly, then how can the product work as it was designed? The following are some installation tips and suggestions for a trouble-free operation:

When possible, install the UV reactor in the vertical position with the inlet at the bottom of the reactor
Disinfect the distribution system with household bleach for a full 30 minutes to destroy any microbiological contaminants in the system and flush before use of water
Always install a 5 micron prefilter with every UV system
Install the UV system as your last piece of treatment equipment
Ensure the UV is installed prior to the hot water heater and before any branch lines to ensure complete disinfection within the home
Leave enough space to remove the lamp and/or quartz sleeve from the system
NEVER undersize a UV system, always move to the next largest size if in doubt. A standard home / cottage, with a minimum of 4 person capacity a 7.9 gpm to 13 gpm UV unit is recommended. If there is a large volume shower increase the size of the UV unit. You can match the ultra-voilet system size with the maximum output (flow) of your water supply, ie..pump capacity . 
Install UV on a separate ground fault interrupter (GFCI) circuit
Use unions in case the system needs to be removed from the home
Follow the recommended pretreatment requirements to the letter!
Do not ignore any alarms or warnings from the system
Change your UV lamp on an annual basis
Test your water regularly for microbiological contaminants
Ask your manufacturer any questions if in doubt

The Future

UV is the fastest growing segment in the water treatment industry today. It is universally accepted around the globe for the treatment of microbiologically contaminated waters and happens to be the most cost effective method. As a manufacturer, LUMINOR is poised to adapt and utilize any new technologies as they relate to UV or disinfection in general. We work closely with others in the industry who are developing new technologies such as those in the LED industry. LUMINOR is committed to providing their customers with the latest technological innovations at the most economical price. The future is definitely bright!


If you are looking for an independently validated UV system for PRIMARY disinfection of a Bacteriologically contaminated water source, The new “NSF 55 Class A” validated systems is your solution.

** NSF Class A dose of 40 mJ/cm2 at 70% UVT

The NSF Class A system conforms to NSF/ANSI 55 for the disinfection of microbiologically contaminated water that meets all other public health standards. The system is not intended to convert wastewater or raw sewage to drinking water. The system is intended to be installed on visually clear water.

NSF/ANSI 55 defines wastewater to include human and/or animal body waste, toilet paper, and any other material intended to be deposited in a receptacle designed to receive urine and/or feces (blackwaste), and other waste materials deposited in plumbing fixtures (greywaste).

If this system is used for the treatment of untreated surface waters or ground water under the direct influence of surface water, a device found to be in conformance for cyst reduction under the appropriate NSF/ANSI standard shall be installed upstream of the system.


If you are looking for an independently validated UV system for SUPPLEMENTAL disinfection of a POTABLE WATER SOURCE , The new “NSF 55 Class B” validated systems is your solution.

** NSF Class B dose of 16 mJ/cm2 at 70% UVT

** The NSF Class B system or component conforms to NSF/ANSI 55 for the supplemental bactericidal treatment of disinfected public drinking water or other drinking water that has been tested and deemed acceptable for human consumption by the state or local health agency having jurisdiction. The system is only designed to reduce normally occurring non-pathogenic, nuisance microorganisms.

The NSF Class B systems are not intended for treatment of contaminated water. It is intended for secondary disinfection only.

While testing was performed under standard laboratory conditions, actual performance may vary.

The systems and installation shall comply with applicable provincial/state and local regulations.
