Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steamfitter51 Quick & easy to install
I wasn't planning to add UV filtration to my house, just a house filter. I thought, "$500 is a good chunk of change, and we've got pretty good water around here." Heck, even the filter was almost a redundancy.
The next day, the morning news said: " ______ County water advisory- boil water order in effect... E-coli... fecal coliform...etc..."
I ordered my filter that day. No regrets. After all, how much fecal coliform bacteria do you really want in your drinking water?
The unit installed in less that a half hour, as part of a whole-house filter installation project. Basic plumbing/soldering skills required, but if you have those and can follow basic directions, no problem. The blue light lets me know from across the room that my water is being sterilized.
I haven't tested water samples, but UV is pretty foolproof. I sleep better knowing my family is drinking clean water.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by roadrashrepairman Nice unit poor instructions
Great unit. Constructed well. The installation instructions are poor at best. I am a great part change with instructions. This was a great part but lacked the reasonable instructions one needs to do the install. Mine came without a washer that was needed for the install. I called and after spending a lot of money on unit they charged me .85 cents for the missing washer and $5 for shipping. Wow they were helpful on that issue. Find the YouTube video it will really help to understand how the unit is put together and installation process. Make sure you have some plumber's grease to start the job.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brett Horrible Instructions and Customer Service
Robbie's review and comments are spot on and I highly suggest watching his video too before you try to install the device. I broke my quartz sleeve while trying to change the bulb after its first year. Called the company and ordered a new sleeve. They sent a bulb but not the sleeve. Long story short their customer service is horrible. Not really sure this a company I want to trust my water filtration needs to.

A couple of months ago we noticed a smell in the water. It tested positive for coliform bacteria. Our water softener tells us how many gallons per minute we use so I cracked open all of the faucets, got the reading and ordered the sterilizer that we would be sure wouldn't be over powered by flow.
Just had it tested again yesterday.
Clean water. I'm very happy with the results.
There are a couple cons though.
When you mount the unit it needs to be done in a way that allows removal of the bulb. I mounted mine horizontally, which isn't the normal mounting position but allowed me a better use of space for bulb changes.
The seal and cap around the wiring harness is questionable but after some Teflon and a little more tightening, be careful, you'll break the tube, everything is water tight.

Easy to install. Watch YouTube video first before installing the tube and light. That will help out a lot and you won't break anything.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Easy to install. Prompt shipping.
Just installed the unit so I have no long term quality comments. It was easy to install and the build quality appeared solid. Any home owner with basic plumbing skills should be able to install and maintain it.
