According to today's BBC news, South Staffordshire Water have just completed a new phase in their water treatment plant which will help to treat and convert reservoir water into drinking water with less use of chemicals. They have completed the installation of 4 UV reactors each with 30 UV tubes of around 5-6 ft in length at £250 each.

New York City has used UV technology for some time to treat the drinking water supply. Pretty hefty annual expense replacing that many bulbs of that size.

Since very large UV systems have been mentioned, it is only fair that the opposite end of this technology be represented. How is this for a small UV unit?
