Why a VIQUA Lamp?

After a year, UV light weakens and isn't strong enough to properly disinfect your water. Replacing your lamp annually with a genuine VIQUA lamp ensures optimal system function and proper water disinfection.

VIQUA UV lamps have been engineered to optimize the disinfection of your VIQUA UV system. UV lamps are engineered to last for 9000 hours. The germicidal strength from the lamp weakens over time, so even though the lamp may appear to work, the disinfection capabilities will be
compromised. Even though the lamp may still illuminate after that time, it is not generating sufficient UVC energy to properly disinfect your water.

Maintain

By replacing your UV lamp annually with a VIQUA bulb, you ensure optimal system function for disinfecting your family’s water supply from harmful bacteria – all while reducing the risk of damage to your system that non-VIQUA lamps can cause to occur. Investing in a quality VIQUA lamp helps to invest in the quality of your system, and in turn your drinking water.

VIQUA lamps ensure your system’s certifications remain valid; NSF/CSA certification validates your system’s optimal function towards protecting your family’s water.

The short answer: once a year.

The long answer: once a year or after 9000 hours of operation. UV light weakens over time, so even though the lamp still lights up after a year, the amount of UV-C light being emitted isn’t strong enough to properly disinfect your water. Learn more about UV lamps here.
