Viqua Model VH200-F10
Powerful, yet compact UV disinfection system with pre-filtration designed for the average size home or cottage, for flow rates up to 9 gpm (34 lpm) @ 30 mj/cm.
Viqua Model IHS1--D4
Same as VH200-F10 but with higher flow rate of 12 GPM (45LPM) More money of course!
Viqua Model: VH410-F20
Same as Model VH200-F10 above but with higher flow rate of 18 GPM (70LPM) and larger pre-sediment cartridge.
Viqua model: IHS22-D4
This is just more elaborate and upscale models of the above cartridge filter systems. Larger filters increase the time between filter changes. Larger filters cost less than two smaller ones and will increase the ease with which water can pass through the filter because of larger filter surface area. Flow rate 12 GPM (45LPM) @ 30 mj/cm.
Notes on the above cartridge filter systems
All of the above systems are cartridge filter systems. They use filter cartridges with with a micron rating referring to its pore size. The smaller the micron rating the faster the cartridge filter will plug up giving you little or no water at your tap.
The maximum micron size as a filter for the pre treatment foe Ultraviolet light is 5 microns. How long a filter cartridge will last depends 100% on the quality of the raw water going into the system and how much water you put through it. This can flucuate radically on the same lake. A system on the east side of a lake receiving wave action of the prevailing west winds will not las as long as a system on a quiet bay on the west side of the same lake. If you live year round on your lake or use your seasonal home a lot then consider our self cleaning system below. It will cost more up front but provide long term savings and less maintenance.
