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: I run UV units on my reef systems, I believe it helps with pathogens, water clarity and purification . I purchased this unit to replace a large, bulky, black unit from Emperor. I have had three emperor ballasts fail on my systems over the past year. Aqua uses a transformer, which I have never had any problems. The transformer is matched to each bulb, and you need it to be consistent and strong to fire up and maintain the uv bulb. I like the smaller size, I can clean the entire unit much more easily. The build quality is superb, the narrower chamber with reflective white walls which is a plus in my book. A word of caution, the Quartz shield needs to be kept clean. On Aqua units the fit at the base is very tight and specific. Do not force the Quartz, it can break easily. Rather remove the coupling at the base and guide it directly under your vision. I am only going to go with Aqua uv units, they are the best.

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.
