Replacing your UV-C lamp
A UV-C lamp has an average life of 1 year. After this year, the lamp will still burn, but the power of the UV radiation has been decreased due to the high number of burning hours. This effect gradually deteriorates and algae and germs are no longer broken down effectively. For a well and constant functioning of your UV-C filter, you should replace the UV-C lamp every year.
Pay attention! UV-C radiation is harmful to your eyes if you look directly at a working UV-C lamp. So always switch off the lamp when you are going to replace it. Fortunately, most UV-C devices are equipped with a special switch that switches off the UV-C lamp when you open the housing.
