Saphir UV Water System

Saphir Systems and

Saphir and Saphir+ range of UV water disinfection systems are designed to provide low-cost chemical-free disinfection solutions for safe water consumption in the home, guest houses and hotels; UV treatment inactivates over 99.99% of bacteria and other microorganisms to keep you, your family and guests safe.

The key advantages of UV water disinfection are:

  • Eliminates the need to buy, handle and store toxic chemicals
  • No risk of ‘overdose’ with UV disinfection unlike chemical disinfection
  • No risk of residual by-products in your water
  • Easy to install into a current water supply
  • Inexpensive to purchase and cost effective to run; a Saphir UV water disinfection system uses less power than a regular light bulb
  • No alteration of taste, odour or clarity of the water

Where source water is supplied directly from a bore hole, well or spring, or you’re harvesting water or simply living off-grid the compact Saphir is the ideal disinfection solution. Kind to the environment it is high performing and will last well beyond its warranty of 12-months.

UV is the smart alternative to buying, storing and handling harmful chemicals – simply install & run and have complete peace of mind.

The compact, space-saving Saphir system is designed to fit under a regular size kitchen sink, on the incoming main, or to the outlet of a header tank in your loft.

Economical to run* the Saphir range utilises mainstream UV lamps that are low-cost to replace. The single ended UV lamp also makes servicing the equipment very simple.

British manufacturer, Daro UV Systems has been designing manufacturing ultraviolet (UV) disinfection systems in the UK for over 40 years. Across the board, our market-leading products have Water Regulation Advisory Service (WRAS) approval.
