How it Works

The Ultraviolet Lamp emits a germicidal ray which alters or disrupts the DNA or RNA of single celled organisms.

UV is a proven and dependable method for controlling algae, bacteria, and protozoa.

Aqua Ultraviolet UV Sterilizers will eradicate these organisms without any harmful residuals.

The UV controls the spread of fish disease, viruses, and other harmful pathogens, as well as keeping your water clear by destroying free floating algae.

Aqua Ultraviolet UV's will clear your water in 3 to 5 days sometimes overnight and keep it that way.

Performance is guaranteed when sized, installed and operated according to our instructions.

The Advantage Series – UV Sterilizers are a versatile technology used for disinfecting water, other opaque liquids, hard surfaces and air. Using the same germicidal rays as the sun, but hundreds of times stronger, UV offers a reliable, cost effective, environmentally friendly alternative to chemicals and their resulting bi-products.

UV Sterilization is a purely physical process so it doesn’t alter water’s chemistry, taste, smell or pH.

The Advantage Series is compact and lightweight ideal for small ponds, aquariums, and water features. Advantage Series units are slim, lightweight units designed for maximum UV effectiveness.

Where do I install my UV?
The best place to install your Aqua Ultraviolet Sterilizer is after the filter. If an after the filter installation
is not feasible, your sterilizer can be installed before the filter, but it will take a little longer to work.
If installed before the filter, be aware that a small rock passing from the pump can break the quartz sleeve.
It is recommended that if you install your unit before your filter, you check the UV periodically for any water
leakage due to a broken quartz sleeve. Be sure to have adequate pre-filtration to prevent breakage.
(A broken quartz sleeve and any damage caused by a broken quartz sleeve is not covered under warranty.)

Do I have to turn my UV off when I clean my filter?
Yes, but only if the chamber is drained or if the water will remain at a stand still for more than 30
minutes. Note: Running longer than the recommended time without water flow can cause
extensive damage to the unit.

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 doesn’t control this type of algae.

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.

What should my flow rate be on my pond or fresh water aquarium?
The optimum flow rate on your pond or fresh water aquarium is to turn over the volume of water 1
to 1-1/2 times per hour.

What should my flow rate be on my salt water aquarium?
Your flow rate should be 3 to 5 times the volume of water per hour.

Should I bypass part of my water through the UV and the rest back to the water supply?
No. Our UV was specifically designed to handle high flow rates for easier installation and the best
water quality.

Is this unit submersible?
Not this specific series.

Does the UV light have any residual effect to the fish?
UV only affects what passes through the chamber. There is no residual effect from UV light.

Does the UV kill good bacteria?
Ultraviolet light does not discriminate about what it destroys. If good bacteria passes by the light it
will be destroyed. Beneficial bacteria are colonized in your filter and along the sides and bottom of
your pond. The only time those will be affected is if it becomes free floating and passes through
the UV.

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