Gotta question, what are they using the UV lights for? The reason I'm asking we have a 40,000 gallon reclaimed water system for the toilets in the building I work in. Right now it is shut down due to the 40,000 gallons of water is contaiminated and has a horrible smell. All the water comes from the roof (rubber) and the condenstate form all the HVAC units.

Are they using it for the irrigation water?

This site is a tennis camp. The helth dept says that if you have kids on site with well water it needs a purifier.

U.V. treatment is great, but pricey. I researched it for a large (MEGA) estate that was pumping from ponds and spreading root rot. They had tried bleach application via injection. I determined it would be cheaper to drill a new well, which worked. The U.V. treatment application is designed for a gpm flow treatment, and as the application rises, the price becomes almost un-affordable, but I still like it and would enthuse anyone to research the application for lower-demand syatems.

Is there something about the UV process that would do harm to brass ball valves?

Got one of those in my house. What exactly do you mean by "rotted" off?

Not the valve itself but the handle, stem, and hardware.

Why have both ball valves and gate valves at each end?

It's hard to tell in the pics, but it looks like galvanized unions to brass?
