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.This unit will not, nor will any other unit, completely sterilise 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.
Fresh Water Sterilizer 4,500-12,000 L / Flowrate - 12,800 L/hr for 30,000 µw/cm2

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).
