Sterilizing a homemade/DIY humidifier with UV light

Can you sterilize your homemade humidifier with UV light? Lets find out!

I have improved my home made/DIY humidifier with a small 5w Ultraviolet light. The problem with the humidifier as it was is that there was a constant struggle against algie. Unless you get in there and clean it every few days it would keep returning. I would often add hydrogen peroxide to the mix to slow the algie down, but I could never beat it. So I decided to add a UV light which permanently runs inside. This should kill any bacteria which enters the tote and keep it cleaner for longer. Ideally I would like to half or quarter the amount of time I need to be actively cleaning it.
