Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. What is a sterilizer?
A. A sterilizer will eliminate green water, control bacteria, water borne pathogens and safely control fish disease.

What is a clarifier?
As a clarifier the single celled algae in your pond will be reduced or eliminated.

What's the difference between a sterilizer and a clarifier?
As a sterilizer, your Aqua UV system will keep your pond or aquarium water crystal clear in addition, you will have the added benefit of bacterial control which will help keep your fish healthy and happy with less risk of disease. As a clarifier your pond will still have a green tint to it, unless you have 50-75% plant coverage or your pond is in full shade.

How often should I change my lamp?
The lamp should be changed after 14 months of continuous use.

Is this unit submersible?
No, this unit should never be submerged in water.

Can this unit be used outdoors?
This unit is designed for both indoor or outdoor use.

Does this uv unit include a pump and tubing?
Unfortunately not; every situation is different and therefore it would be difficult to include a one size fits all approach.  

Do ultraviolet lights kill string algae or algae on the walls or liner?
Ultraviolet lights only kill single celled algae which passes through the unit and cannot kill off other types of algae.

What should I expect after my UV is installed?
If your Aqua Ultraviolet system is installed after the filter and is properly sized the water should be clear in 3-5 days. If your Aqua Ultraviolet system is installed before the filter the water should be clear in 7-10 days. The green algae on the sides and bottom of the pond will not disappear, this is normal in a pond. The UV does not control this type of algae.
Out of Pond Use Only! Not too be Submerged.
