Silverline UV systems comprise an outer chamber made in polished stainless steel, that contains a high purity quartz tube surrounding a 28 watt ultra violet (germicidal) sterri lamp plus electrical box.
Carefully unpack and check all parts for damage. The units are normally supplied with the internal quartz sleeve fitted and sealed. Lamps normally packed separately. Screws to fix the brackets are NOT supplied.
Fix brackets to wall where the UV is to be mounted (leaving adequate space for lamp removal from at least one end).
Fix UV chamber to brackets ensuring it is firmly secured.
Join water supply pipes as appropriate to inlet and outlet ports.
Mount UV control box centrally adjacent to the chamber, ensuring the electrical wires can comfortably meet both ends of the UV chamber for lamp connection.
Connect power lead from UV control box to plug or fused switch (5 amp fuse should be fitted to plug).
Carefully insert lamp into UV chamber (sits within quartz sleeve).
Push white connector plugs from control box onto each end of the lamp. Join earth lead to nut on UV chamber.
Turn on water to UV unit and check for leaks.
Turn on power to control box and check for 'glow' at chamber ends to ensure lamp is lit.
WARNING: DO NOT LOOK AT THE LIGHTED LAMP WHEN LIT
Once installed the ultraviolet light should remain on continuously so all water is treated. We recommend the lamp should be changed every six months to maintain full strength and, if fitted, the pre-filter cartridge should also be replaced.
The quartz sleeve within the unit should be periodically cleaned or replaced to ensure it does not impair the UV light. We recommend 2-3 yearly but sooner if water clarity is questionable.
