The key advantages of UV water disinfection are:

  • Eliminates the need to buy, handle and store toxic chemicals
  • No risk of ‘overdose’ with UV disinfection unlike chemical disinfection
  • No risk of residual by-products in your water
  • Easy to install into a current water supply
  • Inexpensive to purchase and cost effective to run; a Saphir UV water disinfection system uses less power than a regular light bulb
  • No alteration of taste, odour or clarity of the water

Where source water is supplied directly from a bore hole, well or spring, or you’re harvesting water or simply living off-grid the compact Saphir is the ideal disinfection solution. Kind to the environment it is high performing and will last well beyond its warranty of 12-months.

UV is the smart alternative to buying, storing and handling harmful chemicals – simply install & run and have complete peace of mind.

The compact, space-saving Saphir system is designed to fit under a regular size kitchen sink, on the incoming main, or to the outlet of a header tank in your loft.

Economical to run* the Saphir range utilises mainstream UV lamps that are low-cost to replace. The single ended UV lamp also makes servicing the equipment very simple.
