What is a Sterilizer? A sterilizer will eliminate green water and control bacteria. The Classic 25 Watt, will sterilize up to 1,200 gallons of fresh water or 150 gallons of salt water.
What is a Clarifier? Used as a Clarifier the Classic 25 Watt, will control green water in a freshwater environment of up to 4,000 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.

Comments: 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.

Comments: I chose this product over others because I like the no-nonsense quality of the unit. Got it home, opened and installed it on my aquarium, and the following day I had a flood under the tank and all over the floor. Needless to say I was not too happy. There was a leak at one of the connections that I hadn't noticed initially. It would not seal no matter how much I tightened it. The o-ring seat had a ridge where the plastic was molded and it was enough to allow water to leak. I was able to repair the seat by filing the seat flat and took the time to do the other seats as well. The seats are repaired, it's re-installed, and no more leak. I feel like I paid a premium price for what should be a premium product. But, in my opinion, I think it is unfair to go through all this trouble with the wet floors and the risk of mold mildew and any other issues etc... I honestly think the product is a good product but can't in good faith give it a good rating. I hope the company will do the right thing when they see this write up and stand behind their product.

Comments: 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.

Comments: Awesome product. An oversized UV, Pentair fluidized bed filter, and a good skimmer make a world of difference in keeping any of the delicate marine species out there.

Comments: After a lot of research from some experienced reefers they helped me with where to put it and how to run it. It's been working nice and built very well. Only been hooked up for a couple of weeks now. Can't wait to see what happens in a few months.

Comments: This is my second UV Sterilizer i have and this is the BEST!! The old one Submersible UV Sterilizer is Suck! It create lot of bubbles and take so much space in the tank. Plus you have to watch the water level to keep it work! The Aqua UV is the "ONLY" choice!! :)

Frustrated

Comments: I just installed this yesterday. It took me a good few hrs with the leak tests and mounting and all. I leak tested this thing as per the instructions (15 minutes) and it leaked from the main quarts cap just a bit. The instructions say to reset the o ring and hand tighten so I did. Tightened it as much as I could. Leak tested again for about 1/2 hr this time and no leak..great. So I installed and tonight a leak from the same place. A real slow drip. I am really frustrated with it. I got the 57 watt unit and spent a pretty penny and should not have this issue. Not happy.

So Far So Good

Comments: I purchased the 8 watt model for my 2 month old 100 gallon freshwater set-up. I was skeptical that 8 watts would be enough, but I went with the manufacturer recommendation. I'm good about maintenance so my water was pretty good, but after four days, I notice that it is clearer than ever. Also, I noticed that the water has stopped smelling. I had a slight sulfuric smell that I could not get rid off. But it seems to be gone. I also think it got rid of a moldy type film that kep coming back on some spots on the sand substrate. I think this was the cause of the smell, which was most noticeable during water changes. I'll give it a week or two to confirm. Fingers crossed... The only area for improvement I would say is to have a better system for hose connections. I'm a little paranoid of having a hose get disconnected, and getting 20 gallons of water on my floors...

Comments: Excellent product. It is a big piece of kit so be aware you'll need to make sure you have enough room under the tank to install it. The unit was undamaged in shipping which was great, so I could unbox and install within 24 hours. It's solidly made and very easy to assemble, but owner will need to purchase separate mounting equipment if they wish to hang or suspend it. There are plenty of cheaper models out there, but I chose this one for the ratings, the reputation for robust quality and the approximate bulb life which is 12-14 months of continuous operation. Some of the cheaper models the bulbs need to be replaced more often. It's been in operation for 72 hours now, no leaks! Definitely recommend it, unless you're not experienced of don't have a good amount of room under or near you tank.

Comments: Algae is 100% clear from all four 40 breeders. Works as described. Slight creep build up around wiper handle. wiper allows for much less maintenance, but I would prefer a unit without one after experiencing salt creep buildup at wiper knob area. I would recommend this to others.
