Material considerations (still in my concept phase):
1. The UV light bulb must be strong, flexible, and allow sufficient transmission of light to the water being treated.
a. Is this possible?
b. Which material gives these attributes for the lowest price?
c. Can a standard UV sterilization bulb be encased, or will it require a new kind of bulb?
d. Which bulbs are commercially available that would fulfill this role? If none, which might be adapted? If none, how do I make one?
e. What power considerations are there for UV sterilization bulbs? What is their power consumption rate, activation cost? Will the XO have enough power to activate them?
f. Do UV sterilization bulbs require any components that are difficult to acquire?
