BIO-UV Group, one of France’s most innovative small businesses was created in May 2000. It is one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of ultraviolet water treatment equipment for private and public swimming pool markets. The BIO-UV Group designs, manufactures, and markets ultraviolet (UV-C) disinfection systems from its production site in Lunel, France.

What is UV?

Ultraviolet (UV) rays penetrate harmful pathogens in your home's water and destroy illness-causing microorganisms by attacking their genetic core (DNA).

The reaction time between the UV irradiation and the organism to be killed is very short and does not create any by-products at all. The water quality, both physical and chemical, remains identical before and after treatment using the UV technique. The UV disinfection can therefore take place at any conceivable and necessary place in a system.

The Different uses of UV:

  • Water purification for domestic use in homes and towns.
  • Solar panel powered drinking water.
  • Waste water purification and waste water reuse, Industrial water treatment.
  • Ballast water treatment for ships.
  • Sanitation and chloramine removal for commercial pools and spas.
  • Automatic non-chlorine water treatment for residential pools and spas.
  • Water treatment for aquaculture, fish farms, ornamental ponds and fountains.
  • Refrigeration tower anti-legionella treatment, hot water tanks anti-legionella treatment.
  • Water treatment for industrial processes in all sectors and for all types of industrial use.


The IBP Series

For domestic drinking water, the IBP series is well-suited for small communities and homeowners since it makes clean water that comes from local drinkable resources. It can also make recycled rainwater safe for drinking.

The IBP series kills 99.9% of the micro-organisms present in the water and there are no disinfection by-products that are harmful to human health.

The physico-chemical characteristics of the water aren’t modified by the IBP series so there's no change in the taste and smell. It can also be combined with other treatment processes such as softening and filtration.


  • Excellent disinfecting performance by optimization of UV emissions and hydraulic flow
  • Compact reactors, easy to install
  • Use of single-base lamps, patented sealing system and vertical design for an easy maintenance
  • Optional UV sensor and monitor offering data reporting by a diode and contact type alarm
  • Lamp life optimized: 13,000 hours depending on the number of switchings on


The IAM Series

In the year 2000, the BIO-UV Group developed and patented a water treatment concept based on ultraviolet C-type disinfection technology, which is perfectly suited to the treatment of municipal or industrial wastewater.

The BIO-UV treatment protects the environment downstream from the discharge of wastewater treatment plants, especially when there are bathing areas, white water activities, fishing, and aquaculture.

The IAM series provides continuous treatment and immediate effectiveness of the disinfection and the bacteria are destroyed in the reactor.

Compared to ozone and chlorine, the IAM series doesn’t produce any disinfection by-products that are harmful to the environment. It also has automatic maintenance and cleaning of the quartz sleeves, which guarantees its overall efficiency.
