Ultra Violet Clarifiers
CAL - OASE - TETRA
An Ultra Violet Clarifier (UVC) is a safe and natural method to reduce waterborne pathogens and algae that cause “green water”. UV is as natural as sunlight. Unlike chemical treatments that can potentially harm the fish, beneficial bacteria and plants in your pond, UV does not leave any residuals in the water and therefore cannot harm fish and plants.
A UVC destroys algae, bacteria, viruses, and some fish parasites by exposing pond water to ultra violet light. A UVC must be used together with a biofilter for guaranteed water clarity.
The UVC unit consists of an ultra violet bulb inside a quartz glass sleeve. A pump forces water through hose to the UVC and from the UVC to the biofilter. The clarified water is then pumped directly back into the pond.
