The Viqua Replacement Quartz Sleeve for VH200 surrounds the UV light protecting and preventing it from coming in contact with the water. UV light is transmitted through the quartz sleeve and purifies the water reducing the bacteria and viruses that would otherwise make it to your beverages. With use, the sleeve will accumulate minerals from the water which must be taken care of and removed about every 3 months to prevent the UV treatment from becoming less effective. Cleaning the sleeve will both help the efficacy of the system but also prolong the life of the sleeve. Once the mineral layer becomes permanent and can not be removed the sleeve needs to be replaced. Protect your UV lamp and keep your system running properly with the Viqua Replacement Quartz Sleeve for VH200, order today!
