More About the Sterilight S5Q-PA Ultraviolet (UV) System

The R-Can Sterilight S5Q-PA ultraviolet light water filter is ideal for whole home water disinfection. It is often used in small homes and cottages to provide protection from bacteria and other organisms that might be present in drinking water. Ultraviolet (UV) purification will destroy harmful contaminants such as e. coli, coliform, cryptosporidium, and giardia.

Water enters the disinfection chamber which contains the ultraviolet lamp. Bacteria and other organisms that pass through the chamber are blasted with high-energy ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Ultraviolet (UV) water purification is superior to chemical water filtration because it does not add any harmful chemicals to your drinking water.

R-Can Environmental is located in Guelph, Canada and is one of the world's largest producers of ultraviolet light water filters for consumers. R-Can has been manufacturing the Sterilight brand of ultraviolet (UV) sterilizers since 1989.

Consider these facts about the R-Can Sterilight S5Q-PA:
