System Service

CALL 09 827 1409 or email sales@uvwatersystems.co.nz to book in your INTERIM or ANNUAL service.

Auckland metro boundaries that we service:

  • Mangawhai in the north
  • Pokeno in the south

If you are in the Auckland metro region we can perform this annual task for you, removing the risk of that accidental breakage, or leaving air in the cartridges or UV chamber. The last thing anyone needs is to break a quartz sleeve on Saturday, and then having trouble getting water over the weekend.

And its hard to practice for doing something once a year!

Charges:

 

A FULL ANNUAL service includes:

  1. Take a photo of the system before its service (identifies any site specific issues)

An INTERIM service may be required IF you experience a drop in (shower) pressure. Ideally this is timed at 6 months, with only the cartridges being replaced, as the lamp will still have 6 months to run.

Slower flows is a stong indication that one or more of your filter cartridges have prematurely 'plugged'. This plugging is normally caused by excessive organic debris such as pollen and sediments.

The 'service life expectation' is that the cartridges will provide good pressure / flow for the full year, so that only one service visit is required. This expectation is based on Jumbo cartridges and typical residential house water usage, and minimal impact of dust and organic debris.

If you are experiencing premature plugging, then its best to change the cartidges at 6 months, so that you get good pressure / flow for the entire year, rather than being 'caught out' at say 9 months. We say 'caught out' because you suffer slower and slower flows trying to survive say the next 3 months, when the FULL SERVICE is due. Clearly hanging on past 6 months is not ideal, as you compromise either flow, or cartridge life, or lamp life, depending on your decision for the next service date.

When cartridges plug up in a matter of weeks, the inconvenience of constantly changing cartridges can be eliminated by installation of a prefilter. We have many customers that have installed our 'crushed glass' auto backwash prefilter. This type of filter removes teh majority of particles, filtering to an unbelievable 5 micron. This 'pretty clear' water is then ideal for filtering using the UV Systems cartridges, extending life to as long as 12 months.
