Every component of a VIQUA system has been designed and developed through extensive research and development to be part of an overall system that operates safely and efficiently over its entire lifetime.
Our lamps are no exception. With more than 35 years of experience in the residential UV business, the technology and care that goes into the development of our products is second to none.
Avoid Non-genuine UV Lamp Risks
If a non-genuine lamp is installed:
- Your water may not be disinfected properly
- Your system performance could be compromised and premature power supply failures may occur
- NSF 55 and UL/CSA/CE certification becomes void
Non-genuine lamps are not worth the risk. Never compromise.
Difference Between Genuine and Non-genuine Lamps?
We’ve conducted tests on non-genuine lamps to see how they could affect your VIQUA system. Some of our findings are below.
|NON-GENUINE LAMP FINDINGS||ADVERSE RESULTS|
|Improper pin alignment||A bad fit between the base and socket could cause the lamp to break, overheat, or fail.|
|Soft glass lamp||VIQUA lamps are made of quartz. Glass reduces UV transmission, which means less UV output and unpredictable levels of water disinfection.|
|Lamps the wrong length||They may not fit in the sleeve or achieve a proper seal. This could prevent the unit from closing, which is a safety risk.|
|Incorrect wiring||Lamps will not light.|
|Inconsistent filament heights||This reduces UV output. Damage to the lamp base could result in unpredictable levels of water disinfection.|
|Lamp structure not perpendicular to the base||The lamp and/or sleeve could break. Inaccurate UV sensor readings could cause false alarms.|
