When used correctly in water purification systems, ultraviolet lamps are generally safe. The lamps themselves do not contaminate water or produce harmful by-products.
As UV lamps are contained in a case within the system, there’s minimal risk of exposure to UV light. However, you must still be careful, as direct exposure to the UV light used in these lamps can harm your skin and eyes.
Safety measures, such as proper installation, usage, and maintenance, are crucial to ensure the safe operation of these systems.
