    What is a Sterilizer? A sterilizer will eliminate green water and control bacteria. The Classic 8 Watt, will sterilize up to 200 gallons of fresh water or 70 gallons of salt water.
    What is a Clarifier? Used as a Clarifier the Classic 8 Watt, will control green water in a freshwater environment of up to 1,500 gallons that has 50% to 75% plant coverage and partial shade.
    What works best for Marine Tanks? In marine fish tanks (No reef or live rock) a flow rate matching those shown in the 75,000 or 90,000 column will be most effective at controlling fish disease.
    How do I size a UV for a Reef Tanks? In salt water reef environments choose a UV that matches your flow rate per hour in the 30,000 or 45,000 columns of our chart. Flow rates in the 75,000 and 90,000 columns will destroy the planktonic food supply for the reef.

    Q
    Housing Durability and lowest acceptable flow rate?
    I used to have the Aqua UV in a black housing but after 6 months, the housing burnt and started disintegrating releasing a foul sludge into the aquarium. I'm wondering if anyone has experienced the same with this white PVC housing? My second question is what would be considered the lowest acceptable flow rate to use with this unit?

    The minimum flow rate is 214GPH for the 8W model. Aqua UV does offer a limited lifetime warranty on the housing against UV degradation. However, if the housing is damaged by too slow of a flow rate, out door installation, the unit running dry or other non-manufacturing/material issues, the warranty would be void.

    Great product with an easy seamless installation. Be aware if you want to wall mount it, it does not come with mounting hardware. All you need is a mount for a 3 inch pvc pipe. Lowes or homedepot carries them.

    Cleared my water right up, literally crystal clear in my sps tank. Make sure you follow the gph ratings for each intensity in order to keep beneficial things from being sterilized in tank. I have the 25W feeding through the return pump into DT. Overall this is a great product so far.
