Aqua Ultraviolet Sterilizer Twist for controlling green water as well as single celled organisms
Aqua Ultraviolet Sterilizers are used as a control to destroy single celled organisms, water borne bacteria, viruses, algae, fungi and protozoa.
Aqua Ultraviolet sterilizers are recommended for both fresh and salt water systems as well as ponds.
There are no residual effects when using an Aqua Ultraviolet Sterilizer.
Ultraviolet will not affect Bio-filters or lower fish immune systems!
HOW ULTRAVIOLET WORKS
The Ultraviolet Lamp emits a germicidal ray which alters or disrupts the DNA or RNA of single celled organisms such as algae, bacteria and protozoa.
By properly implementing an Aqua Ultraviolet System in-line, these organisms can be eradicated effectively without any harmful residuals.
Your Aqua Ultraviolet System was made to work as a control for green water and single celled organisms.
This unit will not, nor will any other unit, completely sterilize your pond as the pond itself is not a sterile environment.
As a control, this unit will effectively lower your water's bacterial count allowing your fish to stay healthier with less risk of disease.
Freshwater UV Sizing Chart:
* Use the sterilizer column for crystal clear water and bacterial control, in pond and aquarium environments.
*** Use the clarifier column when the pond is partially in the shade and has 50% plant coverage.
This will improve water clarity resulting in a natural looking pond.
GPH numbers are based on turning over the volume of water one time every hour to every hour and a half.
UV dosage is calculated at the end of lamp life (14 months).
Flow rates and results may vary.
Saltwater UV Sizing Chart:
Reef Tanks: A UV Rated in the 30,000 to 45,000 columns is ideal for the reef environment.
UV’s rated at higher kill rates will destroy the planktonic food supply for the reef.
Marine Fish Tanks (No reef or Live Rock): A UV rated in the 75,000 to 90,000 columns will be the most effective at controlling fish disease.
All UV dosages are calculated at the end of lamp life (14 months).
