Dear Client, If you are looking through this website, you are probably looking for a town, mains, rain, lake, stream, bore, tank or UV filtration system. You may not know exactly what you need or require and you may not fully understand how water filtration systems work. There are a number of different UV water filtration systems available. On this website they are all designed, built and assembled here in Auckland New Zealand. All these systems work effectively and efficiently to give you safe, clean drinking water, assuming you have chosen the correct one for your requirements. Buying a cheap or wrongly designed system or a system not fit for your needs will create endless, costly problems. If you are unsure or do not understand exactly what you need or require then give us a call and we will guide and assist you to select the correct one. There are many factors to consider, as examples; known water problems, the water source, roof and construction and materials. Age, number of occupants in the house, required water volume, gutters, number of bathrooms, leaching and environmental factors such as; unsealed gravel roads or overhanging trees.

What are the considerations when looking for a UV water filtration system:

  1. We offer complete systems ready for easy installation. Install on the wall, connect the inlet and outlet and plug it in. Our water filtration units can be installed on posts or outside walls. They are complete with riveted waterproof white aluminium covers, suitable for outside installations.
  2. A big issue in the country is the continued advent of power cuts and moisture on electrical components. This leads to premature component failure especially on systems located outside in wet conditions. All our systems come with built in RCBO and surge protection. They also have Gel filled controller/ ballasts in IP rated enclosures, this ensures protection against moisture and the elements.
  3. The filters for your system last 9 to 12 months but this is based on water quality, if the quality is poor then this would be less. The UV light lasts for around 10000 hours, or 1 year.
  4. Filter systems can block after only a few months when there are additional contamination issues like stirred up tank sediment from a big down pour. Pollen is also a issue that cause blocked filters. It is best to change filters after the 6 week pollen season to reduce these issues. Our engineers can help with solutions which are inexpensive for these problems.
  5. A question often asked is what is the cost to maintain an average water filtration and UV sterilisation system annually. The cost for all consumable parts including 3x filters, lamp and seal replacement, freight and tax is $240 approximately per annum.
  6. Establishing whether the UV filtration system is suited to your needs and can process the required water volume you desire. You should consider location, water inlet pipe position, power connection and access to services. The System should be installed between waist and chest height. It should be on a wall or wooden posts but away from direct sunlight. The system should be the last entry point of the water pipe to the house to ensure that all contamination is eliminated prior to the water being consumed.
  7. If you have water problems like discoloration, taste or smell, that maybe caused by outside influences such as an old roof or gutters, storage tanks and over hanging trees you will need a UV 3 filter system. On the other hand, should you have no water problems but need a precautionary system, then a UV and 2 filter system could be ideal. This is just a simple explanation to guide you but we would be glad to discuss your property and requirements in some detail to make sure you choose a system that suits your budget and needs.
