The radiation of the UV lamps kills all harmful microorganisms present in water, thereby making it safe for use. The best part is UV water purifiers don’t waste water at all during the purification process.
However, if the water that you receive is loaded with chemical impurities and dissolved salts, you need to install an RO water purifier.
