Introduction

UV is a proven disinfection technology used in water purification which delivers microbiologically safe water. The germicidal lamp inside the UV emits ultraviolet energy that can alter the nucleic acid (DNA) of viruses, bacteria, and cysts so they cannot reproduce and are thereby considered inactivated. The A. O. Smith Z1 Water Purifier incorporating UV purification technology produces germ-free potable water for drinking. Purified water is collected for drinking in a storage tank.

How does the A. O. Smith Z1 Water Purifier work?
A. O. Smith Z1 Water Purifier has 5 stages of purification system, wherein the water is passed through the various stages and progressively filtered to get purified water which is stored in the inbuilt storage tank.

Stage 1 – Pre-filter
The Pre-filter is used to remove physical contaminants such as dirt, dust, soil particles, and turbidity present in the water. This improves the life of the Fine Sediment filter.

Stage 2 – Fine Sediment filter
The Fine Sediment filter is used to remove finer physical contaminants present in the water. This improves the life of the Carbon block.

Stage 3 – Carbon block
The Carbon block with high adsorption capacity reduces harmful chemicals including pesticides, volatile organic compounds, residual chlorine, etc., from water. It also adsorbs bad taste and odor-causing organic compounds from water.

Stage 4 – UV lamp
In this stage, water is passed through UV housing wherein UV rays disinfect the water by eliminating water-borne disease-causing micro-organisms like bacteria and viruses making it healthy for drinking.

Stage 5 – UF (Ultrafine) filter
In the final stage, water is passed through Ultra fine filter where it removes deactivated microbial cells and cysts.
