The Pura UVBB-3 a multi-stage, high capacity filter with UV disinfection, is a larger version of the UV20-3 for larger homes or small commercial applications. This system is rated to treat an amazing 15 gallons per minute.
Designed to purify the water throughout your home, the Pura UVBB-3 is a high capacity filter and UV purifier. This system is rated to treat an amazing 15 gallons per minute for larger homes or for homes with more than 5 persons. Combines 5 micron sediment filtration with a 10 micron carbon block to filter out contaminants including chlorine, pesticides, insecticides, VOCs, benzene, bad tastes and odors from your water.
The UV light protects you from bacteria and virus contamination with a kill rate of 99.99%. The 10 micron carbon block may be exchanged for a 0.5 micron carbon block to also filter cysts such as cryptosporidium and Giardia. Cysts are more commonly found in surface waters and are not very well affected by UV light due to their outer shell. At 3 - 10 micron in size, filtering these is easy with the 0.5 mic. cartridge option.

Q: Can this system be used to treat iron?
A: No, all secondary contaminates including Iron, Sulfur and Manganese must be pre-treated because they will prematurely clog the filters used in this system. If you have any of these click here for information on iron, sulfur and manganese removal systems
Q: Can this system be used on City treated water?
A: Yes, this system will remove Chlorine and add extra protection from bacteria.
Q: Is it necessary to have sediment and carbon filtration combined with UV?
A: Yes, removing sediments and VOC’s prior to the Ultra Violet light stage enables the UV light to penetrate the bacteria. Sediments and VOC’s can inhibit the UV lights ability to kill bacteria and viruses.

The PURA ultraviolet systems kill bacteria and viruses up to 16,000 microwatt seconds per square centimeter, each UV bulb will need to be changed every 12 months to ensure optimal performance. The UV light will not burn out and therefore it will glow when the microwatts have fallen under 16,000 microwatts. We are happy to send our Customers e-mail reminders keeping them on track with regular maintenance. Following is a list of Bacteria, Viruses and Yeast that will be killed with all of our PURA Ultraviolet systems:
CYSTS – Very Important – must choose .5 micron carbon
Cysts normally cannot be
killed with UV, but are
removed with a sub-micron
filter such as EPCB filter by
PURA. Cysts include
Giardia Llamblia and
Note that .5 micron carbons will hinder flow rates by 2-4 gpm.
Dimensions: 30" h x 9" d x 22.5" l
NPT: 1-1/2" inlet/outlet
Flow rate: 15 GPM (10 mic.), 12 GPM (0.5 mic)
