Answer: 
Dear Valued HomeDepot Cutomer,
We reached out to the MFG for more information and below is their response.
"Size of house and water flow rate determine the size of unit needed. For example, a 2 bathroom home with 2 people would need a PT 8 UV. 3-4 bath home a PT 12. Most smaller homes the flow rate would be 6-8 gallons per minute."

8 Ultraviolet Disinfection Unit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product We failed two water tests for our home refinance. I was going to try to bleach the well for the second time but my wife had read something about the ultraviolet disinfection unit and asked me to look at it. We decided to buy it. It was very easy to install thanks to a video we saw on YouTube. I did have to run to the store a couple times to get the correct adapting parts to our pipes. Sent the water test in for the third time and it passed with flying colors. I would recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I purchased 2 of these units. 1 i put in a house i was selling that had bacteria in it and one that i build that when the well was drilled it showed bacteria in it. solved the bacteria problems in both cases and were very easy to install

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A high quality product. Installation manual could have been a little clearer but I figured it out. A high quality product. Installation manual could have been a little clearer but I figured it out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to install! The only reason why this doesn't get a 5 star rating is because while there is documentation on the product in the kit, it doesn't speak to the actual installation of the system. Also, if the top nut holding the crystal sleeve/UV bulb is not tight enough water will seep out and drip directly onto the control board. Oversight in design engineering. Fortunately if you search for the kit on YouTube there is a gentleman that has made all the mistakes, and shows how to prevent them. I purchased the kit because we had colliform in our well water. Our water is now some of the cleanest the lab has ever seen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended for Well Water All I can suggest is to look at your plumbing requirements and make a list of everything you need and might need (just in case items). Installation is very easy. Just take your time putting in the bulb. Use of shark bite fittings and hoses makes it a snap. Extra items are always needed because some modifications are needed to your plumbing but this was installed and running in about an hour. Just like all installations, I installed 2 house filters before the light which makes a difference in the water cleanliness. Maintenance is needed once a year on the light for about 79.00. Great product and it works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product, excellent customer service This unit dropped our well water bacteria count (which was not e-coli) from 200 to 0. We did have the lamp ballast fail after the 1 year warranty had expired but they replaced it free of charge. We have this installed in our vacation home that must be drained for the winter. It would be nice to have a drain at the bottom of the unit so that the plumbing doesn't have to be disconnected in order to drain it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works great and is a great value. This product must work great because neither my wife or I have had any issues drinking the treated water from the lake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install and set up. A very simple way to treat water for bad bacteria without affecting it’s taste. Installation using PEX pipe and fittings was fast and simple – no leaks – no alignment problems!
