Reverse osmosis and UV are among the most effective water purification methods.
Sometimes, they are combined to remove all contaminants including any microorganisms from water.
If you want to use an RO UV water purifier at home, we’re happy to help you calculate the expenses. In this article, we’ll highlight the current (2023) prices of RO and UV water purifiers to make your budgeting easier.
Reverse osmosis uses a semipermeable membrane to filter contaminants out of the water, while UV uses ultraviolet light rays to kill microbes.
Some ready-made systems combine both methods, treating your water with RO and UV.
Here are examples of such (RO + UV) systems and their specific prices.

|Max Water 6 Stage Home Reverse Osmosis System with UV||$195.95|

Apart from the initial purchase cost, you also need to consider the cost of installing your RO UV system. Installation is relatively inexpensive, but here’s what you need to know:
Point-of-use RO UV systems usually come with everything you need to install them. So you don’t need to budget extra for tools and supplies.
Installing an RO system with UV is easy; if you have basic plumbing skills, you can do it yourself.
But if you hire a professional, installing the system will cost between $150 and $400.
To maintain an RO UV water filter, you must replace the various pre-filter elements once or twice every year and the RO membrane and post-filter every two to five years.
The UV light bulb would also lose its potency after about a year, so you must renew it. The quartz sleeve that stores the light bulb needs replacement after two to three years.
The yearly cost of replacing the pre and post-filters and the reverse osmosis membrane is about $100 to $150 on average.
Replacing the UV light bulb will cost about $80 to $130, depending on the size and standard of the bulb you buy. The Quartz sleeve costs about $40 to $60.
