Cuts Water Flow in Half

Comments: Bought the 12x (36 watt) unit for my 120 gallon show tank. I bought the bigger one because it said it had fittings that would fit the 1" line I have coming off of my pump. It fit, but what they don't tell you is the inside of this unit cuts way down to like 1/2" or 3/8" which dramatically cut the water flow to my tank down. That's not good. Now I have to buy a separate pump just for the sterilizer.

Comments: We use this product in baptismal font at church. The first one lasted 10 years, only needed to change the bulb a few times. Not real fond of the hose connections. Standard pipe fittings would be better, but overall satisfied with the product. Great service from Marine Depot.

Comments: In 2 1/2 years I have been through two of these (36W), and both have had seals fail ruining the units -the second failing after only 6 months of use. Don't waste your time or money. Find another unit!

Comments: I liked this unit because it was a little smaller than comparable power rated ones. I had a little difficulty with threaded connector for the hose adapter. Just used a regular hose clamp, no problems.

Comments: I have gone through two of these within the last year. The "stainless" steel tends to rust through which technical support claims is as harmless as using GFO in your system. I don't know about you but I don't like my equipment rusting and flowing into my tank. Supposedly China is working on taking out the metal sleeve and redesigning it. I'll give it another look when they do. The plastic mounting clips on my last two also broke over time.

good design, skimped on parts

Reviewers Rating Great

Comments: The internal twist design doesn't increase dwell time; that would be impossible. But it does discourage laminar flow in the unit, so the chances of any pathogens spending some time close enough to the lamp for sterilization are greatly increased. I like the unit. The ballast is suspect (at least from the units of a few years ago). Mine recently failed, so I re-wired with a Workhorse 3, and the intensity of the UV light coming from the indicator window is now MUCH brighter. If you have any DIY skills, I would advise switching to a Workhorse ballast (after the warranty expires).

Comments: This product is almost perfect out of the box. I did quite a bit of research on UV sterilizers and choose this one based on its ability to maintain contact with the water for just that much longer as it followed the twist around the UV bulb. I would say that an extra 1/16th of an inch of plastic in the mounts would make this sterilizer absolutely perfect. When trying to snap the mounts onto the body of the sterilizer you actually have to fight with them, almost to the point of breakage to get them to fit. When assembling the bulb be sure to avoid touching with your fingers as the oils on your fingers will shorten the bulb life. All the seals and connections were tight and waterproof directly out of the box. However, I did not use the plastic nuts supplied to connect the tubing as they really didn't fit well or seem like they would do the job intended. I therefored used automotive hose clamps which maintained a watertight seal the first time. When looking for a pump to run the unit I choose the Eheim 1000 Compact Pump.
