8 Ultraviolet Disinfection Unit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Install instructions need to be much better Product is as described, I thought it was well worth the money. Had a high coliform test result.Installation instructions stink! I did some research and the " YouTube guy" video really helped out. Just search pur test 8 water filter and WATCH VIDEO BEFORE YOU CRACK THE GLASS TUBE! Instruction suggest using thread tape at all fittings but stainless steel female fittings on filter body leaked until I took them apart for the 55th time and used Oatey Great White thread compound( everything else I tried still leaked) So I suggest using that from the beginning. Also, I recommend doing a 3valve bypass installation find that on YouTube also, cause install instructions don't tell you anything about it.

Good unit, but the assembly of the lamp and lamp quartz was a little tricky. Had to view a youtube video on how to do assemble and tighten the lamp and quartz tube assemblies. The 3/4 NPT connections required 5 to 6 layers of Teflon tape to stop leaking after initial assembly and test.

I believe the device would be better suited to provide O ring lubicant and a spare O ring as the only thing between staying dry and possibly getting the control device wet is this O ring. The control box is not sealed and can realistically get wet if the O ring is not tight enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent unit After installing this unit our water test came back with passing score. We were reading high levels of coliform bacteria. After installing a reading of 0 came back. Other than figuring out that extra thread tape was required to stop small dripping issue it was great.

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 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.
