The UV light spectrum lies between the shortest wavelength of light visible to the human eye, and X-rays, which of course are invisible. Specific wavelengths within this band of the light spectrum are characterized as germicidal. Water treatment systems use a UV light source with a protective covering (usually a watertight quartz sleeve) immersed in water to be treated.
The UV rays emitted by the lamp inactivate harmful microorganisms and parasites. As the water rushes by the lamps, microorganisms are exposed to a lethal dose of UV energy. The rays alter the DNA of parasites, yeasts, molds, algae, bacteria and viruses, so that even though they are technically still alive, they cannot reproduce, are powerless to infect a host and are considered inactivated. The process has a 4-log effectiveness, which means it destroys 99.99 percent of the target organisms.
