It should actually kill it.
Eh....maybe. it's UV-C that is actually antibacterial/antiviral. And that also happens to be very dangerous to your eyes and skin, so these UV LEDs are not operating in that range of UV.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

I see. It won't kill bacteria/virus but will it promote growth? Or is it just neutral and do nothing except for potentially "burning" plastic tubing?

Any clues as to what the issue really is? I've been planning to change the Pastel coolant on my system with coolant from bottles that I have from a year ago and I was hoping those are not affected.
Nothing atm. trying to forfill other orders for larger companies and not had time to look into it fully. ATM as said staff are furlong this has left me with no time whats so ever. Plus right at this moment in time in a canny bit of pain down my right-hand side. (p.s this is not an excuse just how things stand right at this moment in time and id rather be honest with everyone).

Some old Guy who messes on in his little factory.
Started in Kichen, worked up to owning a factory!
How i did it i haven't got a clue and still don't know how i do it to this day!

All i can say is my Hobby is my job and i love my job.

No idea. On one hand it's light, so one would assume yes. On the other hand it is supposedly UV....but who knows at what part of the spectrum?

@Mayhem should be able to educate us on this. I would assume they know everything there is to know about fluids and what causes growth or not.

That is a good question though. Wonder if other RGB or LED's cause cause growth. Most info I can find just mentions sunlight and not what part of the spectrum.

UV would kill bio, not promote it. (if your UV cathodes are even strong enough to do anything at all)

not to mention, most of us are using LEDs n such now, no the old school cathode UV tube.

Add me on Steam, same name

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

The thing is, many of these LEDs are nothing more than purple lights, and don't have any appreciable UV output. At that point, it's not UV, it's just a purple colored light.

So, the problem with the question is you need to know what light specifically is being referenced, and what the actual output of that light is.

And I feel like it's 2010 all over again talking about UV.....

thanks for further iterating on that


you would probably just wanna buy an actual HVAC UV bulb, if you really wanted to go for the effect.

and i'm gonna guess those are about as expensive as they've ever been, right now. This very instant. COVID19 has been a boon for any HVAC company with an existing bulb hustle game going. (i'd assume that's most of them these days, and yes they do actually work, if you get enough of them going. You're better off doing it yourself if you have some general know how. We did the before & after tests in our last house & it's legit.)
